Does NWA5123-AC-HD support Band Select?

Question

Via datasheet of NWA5123-AC-HD, "band select" is supported; however, NWA5123-AC-HD will show limited if enabling this function. What is the problem?

Answer

 
 
In the datasheet, we mainly mention Smart Client Steering feature, which is a marketing feature name with Band Select, RSSI signal threshold & Load Balancing setting.
 
Though BRCM APs (NWA5123-AC HD & WAC6303D-S) do not support Band Select before 5.40, with RSSI signal threshold & Load Balancing, we still can achieve Smart Client Steering. 
 
 
For Band Select feature, we all know client behavior plays a role in Band Select mechanism, to provide better wireless experience, we decide to enhance its mechanism to work with 802.11v support. The function is now supported on released f/w v5.40. So if you see Limited AP on your NXC's page, please upgrade AP's f/w to 5.40 or above version.
 
Alternatively, customers can configures smaller 2.4G RF power compared to 5G to help dual-band clients associate to 5G.
