802.11mc / WiFi RTT indoor location

Hi,

 

Anybody knows if UniFi APs support or will support 802.11mc WiFi RTT for location indoors with Android P?

Thanks

UBNT has not made any statement about this, neither formally nor informally, that I know about.

Same here, would love RTT 802.11mc firmware.  Especially for the bullets, but I also have a bunch of AP-AC-LR that I'd like to test with.

I too would like to see 802.11mc (RTT) Fine Timing Measurement supported.

 

I'm trying to recommend a system for an upcoming large venue but would like to stay ahead of at least the 1st rip/replace sequence by having moderately future-proofed (3-5 years) APs to support indoor venue navigation out of the box.

I don't know of any commercially available products that support 802.1mc. AFAIK it is still in draft status.

If I helped you, please don't clutter the forum with a Thank You post. Give Kudos or Mark as a Solution instead. I'll appreciate it.

I agree that it is a new standard and possibly not yet fully ratified, and this YouTube from Google IO may be optimistic, however

Re: 802.11mc / WiFi RTT indoor location

I doubt 802.11mc could be implemented in software only. It is a chipset feature and once chipset manufacturers incorporate it to their forthcoming products Ubiquiti will provide an user interface to us. That means we will need to buy new APs. Fortunately none of this is reality yet, so we can safely buy our 802.11acs and trust they will be EOL by the time 802.11mc hits the stores.

Here's a new app from Google to test WiFI RTT: https://github.com/googlesamples/android-WifiRttScan

Now we need hardware... Any news from UBNT?

Re: 802.11mc / WiFi RTT indoor location

I just noticed this line in the changelog for this uap firmware update: https://community.ubnt.com/t5/UniFi-Updates-Blog/FIRMWARE-3-9-42-9152-for-UAP-USW-has-been-released-... 

"[UAP] Add RTT latency tracking."

 

So I guess the code is there but it just hasn't been enabled yet? @UBNT-MikeD

That specific change is one of many metrics used for Wi-Fi Experience scoring.

Re: 802.11mc / WiFi RTT indoor location

Oh, interesting. does that have anything to with the actual 802.11mc spec? (and when can we expect Unifi AP's to start broadcasting RTT?) @UBNT-MikeD

I'd definitely be interested to know if support is coming as well.

Is the raw RTT data available via an API or something in the controller out of curiosity?
