RF Tuning: Access Point Power Caps

Modern Wi-Fi Access Points are now capable of much higher transmit powers than the client devices. They can run at 200mW, with the average small client device running at 25mW.  One technique to limit transmit power in a Wi-Fi network is to use RF power caps on the APs.
