Examples

The output of this example shows that the 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 on a spectrum monitor named ap123 is sending spectrum analysis data to a client with the IP address 10.240.16.177.

The output of this command includes the following information:

Column

Description

AP name

Name of an AP configured as a spectrum monitor or hybrid AP.

Group

Name of the spectrum device’s AP group.

Ap Type

The AP model number .

Phy

The radio’s PHY type. Possible values are A for 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. and G for 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./g,

Band

Spectrum bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. that the spectrum monitor or hybrid AP radio is currently monitoring.

Mode

This column shows whether the device is an access point configured as a hybrid AP, or a spectrum monitor.

Client IP

IP address of the client to which the spectrum monitor or hybrid AP is sending data.

Subscribe time

Time at which the spectrum monitor or hybrid AP was connected to the client.

Command

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.

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.
