This article discusses Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS), and how it affects Datto Networking access points.
- Datto Access Points
Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) is a function of an Access Point which allows it to listen for specific technologies broadcasting on reserved channels, such as radar. When an access point detects a signal, it will cease transmission and search for a silent channel. The access point will resume broadcast once the channel is free of any special transmission.
Many international organizations, such as the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), require that access points function in this manner.
