The output of this command includes the following information:

Column

Description

Name

Name of an AP.

Group

AP group which includes the specified AP.

IP Address

IP address of the AP.

BSSID

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. for the AP. This is usually the AP’s MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. address.

Band/Ch/EIRP/MaxEIRP

The RFRadio Frequency. RF refers to the electromagnetic wave frequencies within a range of 3 kHz to 300 GHz, including the frequencies used for communications or Radar signals. bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. in which the AP should operate (a or g) or Radio channel used by the AP, or Current 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. /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.

MTU

MTUMaximum Transmission Unit. MTU is the largest size packet or frame specified in octets (eight-bit bytes) that can be sent in networks such as the Internet. size, in bytes. This value describes the greatest amount of data that can be transferred in one physical frame.

Enet 0/1

Shows the current mode of each wired interface.

Off: Interface is not available for serving clients.

If an AP has only one wired interface, the output of this command will display a dash (-) for the unavailable port.

Mesh Role

An AP operating as a mesh node can have one of two roles: mesh portal or mesh point.

Parent

If the AP is operating as a mesh point, this parameter displays the name of its parent mesh portal. Mesh portals will display a dash (-).

#Children

If the AP is operating as a mesh portal, this parameter shows the number of mesh point children associated with that mesh portal.

AP type

The AP model type.

Uptime

Number of hours, minutes and seconds since the last Mobility Master reboot or bootstrap, in the format hours:minutes:seconds.
