Title: CHANNEL SELECTION DEVICE AND METHOD FOR EXTENDED WI-FI NETWORK
Abstract:
According to an embodiment, the disclosure relates to a channel selection device (100) adapted to determine a first channel to be used by a wireless access point (101) for communication with one or more range extenders (130-133) within a first frequency band. The channel selection device (100) comprises a collection module (102) configured to collect throughput demands and channel utilizations within the first frequency band of a front-haul of the access point (101) and of front-hauls of the range extenders (130) and configured to select the front-haul with a highest throughput demand and to select from that front-haul a channel with a least channel utilization as the first channel used by the access point (101) to communicate with one or more range extenders (130-133).
