GAN Wi-Fi Threshold IT policy rule

Description

This rule specifies the threshold for the Wi-Fi® signal quality when a BlackBerry® device changes from the GAN to the WAN. If the Wi-Fi signal quality drops below the threshold in the GAN-preferred mode and an acceptable cell is available, the BlackBerry device tries to change from the GAN to the WAN.

The previous name of this rule was GAN WLAN Threshold.

Default value

The default value is a null value. A BlackBerry device chooses an appropriate value. This value might be specified by the mobile network provider.

Usage

If you choose Low, a BlackBerry device uses the GAN mode unless the Wi-Fi signal quality is very low.

If you choose Medium, a BlackBerry device uses the GAN mode if the Wi-Fi signal quality is high or medium.

If you choose High, a BlackBerry device uses the GAN mode only if the Wi-Fi signal quality is high.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.2.1
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.1 SP3
