Monitoring and Maintaining Wi-Fi Client Health

The Wi-Fi Client Health Score works to remove a significant barrier to adoption of Wi-Fi as a wired LAN replacement by providing instant, easy-to-understand visibility of what's going on in the network. Administrators can look at the overall client performance over time, and then drill down for actionable information of performance by individual clients. Because the Client Health Score is presented in virtually real time, this enables the administrator to make changes quickly; many times before an issue is even noticed by the users themselves. This reduces the operational cost of the WLAN and accelerates the pervasive deployment of Wi-Fi as the primary access layer in the enterprise.

As Wi-Fi continues to permeate the entire network fabric, keeping the Wi-Fi clients on the network performing is becoming a very high priority.

I really like the way that this paper differentiates between "data" and "actionable data." And then Aerohive does a great job of describing how they measure the "health" of a client using a wide range of parameters and then automatically take action if a client is getting sub-optimal service.

A great paper and benchmark regardless of your exact provider.
