This article examines the benefits of the proposed standard IEEE 802.11v for wireless network management. IEEE 802.11v will provide important and efficient mechanisms to simplify network deployment and management. The standard defines procedures by which a wireless infrastructure can control key parameters on wireless client adapters, such as identifying which network and/or access point to connect to. Wireless client control, network selection, network optimization, and statistics retrieval and monitoring are among the capabilities proposed for 802.11v.
