Transient Client Management

Performance Optimization

What it means:

Transient Client Management is a capability that delays associations of Ruckus AP’s with transient clients (devices that are in the AP’s coverage area for a short time) using statistical methods.

Why you should care:

In a dense Wi-Fi network, transient clients can degrade the user experience for already connected clients. This problem is typical in train stations, bus terminals and various public hot spot venues where thousands of devices moving through an area send management frames to an AP they don’t intend to connect with. This overwhelms the network with unnecessary traffic and thus slows down the Wi-Fi.

With Transient Client Management, Ruckus APs maximize the attention towards already connected non-transient clients and utilize the airtime more efficiently.
