Beacon Count value

Could anyone please explain what is the Beacon Count under Link Quality Indicator statistics?

On PMP equipment, each frame in the downlink coming from an AP contains a Beacon, which includes information about the AP’s configuration, and is used by the SMs to detect the presence of a suitable AP and determine its capabilities. The Beacon Quality indicator percentage captures how clearly the SM is able to see/parse those beacons. Generally, for well-aligned equipment, this value is at or close to 100%. Values lower than this can lead to connection issues and may point to poor RF or alignment issues.



Appreciate your feedback.
