Usage Guidelines

Issue this command to view detailed information about currently active non-Wi-FiWi-Fi is a technology that allows electronic devices to connect to a WLAN network, mainly using the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radio bands. Wi-Fi can apply to products that use any 802.11 standard. devices on the network. Use the optional type parameter to display data for one specific device type only. For additional details about non-Wi-FiWi-Fi is a technology that allows electronic devices to connect to a WLAN network, mainly using the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radio bands. Wi-Fi can apply to products that use any 802.11 standard. device types shown in this table, see Non-Wi-Fi Interferers.

 

A hybrid AP on a 20 MHz channel will see 40 MHz Wi-Fi data as non-Wi-Fi data.

ID

ID number assigned to the device by the spectrum monitor or hybrid AP radio. Spectrum monitors and hybrid APs assign a unique spectrum ID per device type.

Cfreq

Center frequency of the signal sent from the device.

Bandwidth

Channel bandwidth used by the device.

Channels-affected

Radio channels affected by the wireless device.

Signal-strength

Strength of the signal sent from the device, 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..

Duty-cycle

Device duty cycle. This value represents the percent of time the device broadcasts a signal.

Add-time

Time at which the device was first detected.

Update-time

Time at which the status of the device was updated.

Description

ap spectrum local-override

Converts an AP or 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. into a spectrum monitor by adding it to the spectrum local-override list.

rf dot11a-radio-profilemodespectrum-mode

Sets an 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. radio so that the device operates as a spectrum monitor, and can send spectrum analysis data to a desktop or laptop client.

rf dot11g-radio-profilemodespectrum-mode

Sets an 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. radio so that the device operates as a spectrum monitor, and can send spectrum analysis data to a desktop or laptop client.
