What is an Autonomous WLAN Design?

In an autonomous WLAN design, access points (APs) are standalone. This means that they include all the features and capabilities needed to function on their own, without the necessity of other devices. They also function on all network planes: management, control and data.

You can interface multiple autonomous APs to the same infrastructure and create an extended service set (ESS). In this scenario, assuming that all the APs adhere to the 802.11 standard, they can provide wireless roaming of client devices without you having to perform any active form of management.

It should be noted, however, if one of the APs in the ESS should happen to fail, you will have a dead spot. This will result in disassociated client devices re-associating with the available APs, which, in turn, will lead to an increase in both the client/AP ratio and traffic.

When implementing an autonomous design, you should configure devices to avoid adjacent and co-channel interference.
