802.11mc support on MR Access Points

Android supports IEEE 802.11mc since Andoid Pie (Android 9), released the last year.

 

IEEE 802.11mc include one feature is known as Wi-Fi Round Trip Time (RTT), and its purpose is to allow devices to measure the distance to nearby Wi-Fi routers and determine their indoor location with a precision of 1-2 meters. Also Wi-Fi Alliance has Wi-Fi Location certification program based on Fine Timing Measurement (FTM) protocol (802.11mc).

 

¿Has any Meraki MR support of 802.11mc? ¿Is it on roadmap?

 

Thanks.

There are no current plans in the roadmap to support 802.11mc.

We currently have other methods to provide location services that are not dependent on an Android device and version.
