APs that gather spectrum data are called Spectrum Monitors, or SMs, and reference a spectrum profile that determines the bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. monitored by that SM radio. Use this profile to modify default device ageout times for spectrum monitors and hybrid APs using this profile.

For a list of APs that can be converted into a spectrum monitor or hybrid AP, refer to Understanding Spectrum Analysis.
