Cisco RX-SOP: How to Turn Down the Noise

Cisco RX-SOP is a feature that de-tunes the receive sensitivity of an Wi-Fi Access Points. Essentially what feature is doing is to tell the AP to ignore transmissions it hears below a certain threshold - it's not removing the traffic from the air, but allowing the AP to ignore it and be able to talk over the top of background noise.
