What it means:
APs and Clients continuously exchange management frames to maintain a connection. Airtime Decongestion is a Ruckus technology that limits management frame exchanges between APs and clients in ultra-high dense environments.
Why you should care:
In an ultra-high dense Wi-Fi environment, excessive management traffic saturates the available Wi-Fi spectrum. This results in poor connectivity and low per-client throughput, ultimately leading to a poor client experience.
Airtime Decongestion technology enables APs to selectively respond to clients, dramatically increasing overall network efficiency for higher airtime utilization and thus a better user experience.
