Issue Description
How Can Channels Be Allocated to Obtain a Better Performance?
Solution
There are only three non-overlapping channels in the 2.4 GHz frequency band: channels 1, 6, and 11. If channels of neighboring APs conflict, channel interference occurs, degrading user access experience.

    Make an AP channel plan before you perform data configurations. You are advertised to manually configure AP channels. The automatic channel adjustment is not recommended.

    If channels of non-Huawei neighboring APs conflict with that of Huawei APs, negotiate with the non-Huawei vendors and change conflicting channels.

Use spatial staggered channels to increase network capacity.

    Channels of neighboring APs are staggered. For example, neighboring APs uses channels in the 2.4 GHz frequency band in a fixed sequence of 1, 6, 11, 1, 6, and 11.

    The 5 GHz frequency band is preferred when it is deployed. In the 5 GHz frequency band, non-overlapping channels are channels 149, 153, 157, 164, and 165.
