I'm working with a couple Cisco WLCs and I know that they use information about client signal strength in determining device locations but I was reading up on "probe requests" and found that, by default, access points will forward probe requests they see only for SSIDs that they serve.
I found that I can disable the "filter" of probe requests so that APs will report all probe requests they see even if destined for unsupported SSIDs.
According to Cisco documentation they say that disabling "probe request filtering" will improve location accuracy but I can't tell if there are any caveats to doing so
Anyone have any experience with this?
The documentation I am going off of is here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/controller/7.4/configuration/guides/consolidated/b_cg74_CONSOLIDATED_chapter_01111010.html
