Using the Requirements panel, you can configure the requirements that your WLAN should meet. The configuration that you create will be used for displaying the Requirement (passive surveys) and Requirements (active surveys) visualizations. These visualizations are helpful for a quick and easy evaluation of the overall health of your WLAN and detection of potential issues. You can set thresholds for the following WLAN parameters (click on the links for the detailed description of the corresponding items):

· Passive  and Predictive Surveys
o Minimum signal level
o Minimum APs required
o Minimum PHY rate
o Minimum allowed frame format
o Minimum channel bandwidth
· Active Surveys
o Minimum TCP upstream rate
o Minimum UDP upstream rate
o Minimum actual PHY rate
o Maximum round-trip time

To facilitate requirements configuration, three presets are available: Basic (for basic, low throughput connectivity), Medium, and Advanced (for high throughput, redundant connectivity, e.g., for VoIP). You can select a preset from the drop-down list, adjust the values, or create your own by clicking on the New button, typing a preset name, and then clicking the Save button. You can also delete presets by clicking on the Delete button.
