The beacon-interval command sets the interval for sending Beacon frames.

The undo beacon-interval restores the default interval for sending Beacon frames.

By default, the interval for sending Beacon frames is 100 TUs.

Usage Guidelines

An RU broadcasts Beacon frames at intervals to notify STAs of an existing 802.11 network. After receiving a Beacon frame, a STA can modify parameters used to connect to the 802.11 network.

A long interval for sending Beacon frames lengthens the dormancy time of STAs, while a short interval for sending Beacon frames increases air interface costs. Therefore, you are advised to set the interval for sending Beacon frames for an RU based on the VAP quantity. The following intervals for sending Beacon frames are recommended for RUs with different VAP quantities on a single radio:
  • No more than 4 VAPs: about 100 TUs
  • 5 to 8 VAPs: about 200 TUs
  • 9 to 12 VAPs: about 300 TUs
  • 13 to 16 VAPs: about 400 TUs

Ensure that the air scan interval meets the following condition: scan-interval ≥ beacon-interval + 100 ms


# Set the interval for sending Beacon frames to 200 TUs in the 2G radio profile default.
