phy-type

Show information for one of the following phy types:

802.11a802.11a provides specifications for wireless systems. Networks using 802.11a operate at radio frequencies in the 5 GHz band. The specification uses a modulation scheme known as orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) that is especially well suited to use in office settings. The maximum data transfer rate is 54 Mbps.

802.11b802.11b is a WLAN standard often called Wi-Fi and is backward compatible with 802.11. Instead of the Phase-Shift Keying (PSK) modulation method used in 802.11 standards, 802.11b uses Complementary Code Keying (CCK) that allows higher data speeds and makes it less susceptible to multipath-propagation interference. 802.11b operates in the 2.4 GHz band and the maximum data transfer rate is 11 Mbps.

Usage Guidelines

APs using ClientMatch maintain a table of clients that have sent probe requests, and the signal-to-noise ratio (SNRSignal-to-Noise Ratio. SNR is used for comparing the level of a desired signal with the level of background noise.) of the frame the AP received from the client. The AP sends these reports to the managed device every 30 seconds and the managed device forwards this information to the Mobility Master , which uses the information in these reports to steer each client to its optimal AP.

The output of this command includes the following parameters:

Parameter Description
Client MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network.

AP name of the AP from which the client can detect a signal.

Signal

Signal strength, in dBmDecibel-Milliwatts. dBm is a logarithmic measurement (integer) that is typically used in place of mW to represent receive-power level. AMP normalizes all signals to dBm, so that it is easy to evaluate performance between various vendors., of the probe request received from the client.

Assoc

A "Y" in this field indicates that the client is currently associated to that AP radio.

Sec since last heard

Time elapsed since the AP radio heard from the client.

Sec since last reported

Time elapsed since the AP radio heard from the client.

Last heard

Date and time at which the AP last heard from the client
