This document provides WSM configuration examples.
Wireless Service Manager (WSM), together with Intelligent Management Center (IMC) and
Intelligent Control Configuration (ICC), provides a sophisticated way for WLAN management. IMC
is responsible for universal network management, ICC for configuration file management and
software upgrade, and WSM for device-related wireless parameter configuration and performance
monitoring.
