Column

Description

bss

The AP Basic Service Set Identifier (BSSIDBasic Service Set Identifier. The BSSID identifies a particular BSS within an area. In infrastructure BSS networks, the BSSID is the MAC address of the AP. In independent BSS or ad hoc networks, the BSSID is generated randomly.). This is usually the MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. address of the AP

ess

port

The slot and port used by the controller, in the format <slot>/<module>/<port>.

ip

IP address of an AP.

phy

An AP radio type. Possible values are:

a—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.

a-HTHigh Throughput. IEEE 802.11n is an HT WLAN standard that aims to achieve physical data rates of close to 600 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.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. high throughput

g— 802.11g802.11g offers transmission over relatively short distances at up to 54 Mbps, compared with the 11 Mbps theoretical maximum of 802.11b standard. 802.11g employs Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), the modulation scheme used in 802.11a, to obtain higher data speed. Computers or terminals set up for 802.11g can fall back to speed of 11 Mbps, so that 802.11b and 802.11g devices can be compatible within a single network.

type

Shows whether the AP is working as an access point (AP) or air monitor (AMAir Monitor. AM is a mode of operation supported on wireless APs. When an AP operates in the Air Monitor mode, it enhances the wireless networks by collecting statistics, monitoring traffic, detecting intrusions, enforcing security policies, balancing wireless traffic load, self-healing coverage gaps, and more. However, clients cannot connect to APs operating in the AM mode.).

ch/EIRP/max-EIRP

EIRP refers to the output power generated when a signal is concentrated into a smaller area by the Antenna.) /maximum EIRPEffective Isotropic Radiated Power or Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power. EIRP refers to the output power generated when a signal is concentrated into a smaller area by the Antenna..

cur-cl

acl-state

An ACLAccess Control List. ACL is a common way of restricting certain types of traffic on a physical port. can enable or disable an AP during specific time ranges.

Disabled: An ACLAccess Control List. ACL is a common way of restricting certain types of traffic on a physical port. with time restrictions is currently disabled (so the AP is enabled).

Enabled: An ACLAccess Control List. ACL is a common way of restricting certain types of traffic on a physical port. with time restrictions is currently enabled (so the AP is disabled).

This data column will display a dash (-) if no ACLsAccess Control List. ACL is a common way of restricting certain types of traffic on a physical port. are currently configured for the AP.

T-Tunnel

S-Split

D-Decrypt Tunnel

B-Bridge (s-standard, p-persistent, b-backup, a-always)

NOTE: If anyspot is enabled for a particular BSSIDBasic Service Set Identifier. The BSSID identifies a particular BSS within an area. In infrastructure BSS networks, the BSSID is the MAC address of the AP. In independent BSS or ad hoc networks, the BSSID is generated randomly., then it is represented as n in the Forwarding Mode parameter.
