    Hi @RRR666 ,

    For optimal performance in environments like hotels, schools, restaurants, or outlet malls, where more than 10 access points (APs) are deployed in close proximity, we recommend using a high-density deployment setting. This approach helps in reducing the output power of each AP, which is crucial for minimizing interference among them.

    However, it's important to note that the ideal radio settings can vary depending on the specific characteristics of each deployment site. Therefore, we advise monitoring the signal strength from the APs to the client devices. This will assist you in determining the most effective maximum output power settings for your specific scenario.

    HI users,

    In case APs are deployed indoor at a distance of approximately 9-12 meters from each other, we recommend using a high-density deployment setting.
    It is important to consider that the presence of devices like Bluetooth, microwaves, and physical obstacles can impact the output power and signal quality of the APs. Therefore, it is crucial to continuously monitor the signal quality experienced by clients. You also can manually adjust the maximum output power by selecting the 'Custom' option in deployment settings and modifying the power value accordingly to suit your specific environment and requirements.

    "close proximity" in linear meters of distance how much should be?
