RADIO RESOURCE MANAGEMENT: Cisco Radio Resource Management (RRM) allows Cisco's Unified WLAN Architecture to continuously analyze the existing RF environments, automatically adjusting each APs' power and channel configurations to help mitigate such things as co-channel interference and signal coverage problems. RRM reduces the need to perform exhaustive site surveys, increases system capacity, and provides automated self-healing functionality to compensate for RF dead zones and AP failures
