What Is Device Auto-Demotion?

Last Update: 11/7/2018

Device Auto-Demotion enables drivers to temporarily place a device off-scan in the event that a device is unresponsive. By stopping communications with the non-responsive device for a specific time period, the driver is able to optimize its communications with other devices on the channel. After the time period has elapsed, the driver will re-attempt communications with the non-responsive device. If the device is responsive, the device will be placed back on scan; otherwise, it will restart its off-scan time period.
