Default

<profile-name>

Name of this instance of the profile. The name must be 1-63 characters.

“default”

channel <channel>

This option is used to set the Channel field in the Beacon Report Request frame. The Channel value can be set to one of the following:

The channel of the AP (when Measurement Mode is set to either 'Passive' or 'Active-All channels')

0 (when Measurement Mode is set to 'Beacon Table')

255 (when Measurement Mode is set to 'Active-Channel Report')

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 bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation.: 1 to 14

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. bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation.: 36 to 165

255

clone <source>

Creates a copy of the Beacon Report Request Profile specified as the <source>.

<source> is the name of an existing Beacon Report Request Profile from which parameter values are copied.

interface <interface>

This field is used to specify the radio interface for transmitting the Beacon Report Request frame.

0-1

1

measure-dur-mandatory

This value is used to set the Duration Mandatory bit of the Measurement Request Mode field of the Beacon Report Request frame.

Disabled

measure-duration <measure-duration>

This value is used to set the Measurement Duration field in the Beacon Report Request frame. The Measurement Duration is set to the duration of the requested measurement. It is expressed in units of TUs.

0 – 65535

0

measure-mode

Indicates the mode used for the measurement. The valid measurement modes are:

active-all-ch—Enables active beacon measurement mode. In this mode, the client sends a probe request to the broadcast destination address on all supported channels, sets a measurement duration timer, and, at the end of the measurement duration, compiles all received beacons or probe response with the requested SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. and 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. into a measurement report.

active-ch-rpt—In this mode, the client and returns a report that contains a list of channels in a regulatory class where a client is likely to find an AP, including the AP transmitting the AP channel report.

beacon-table—Enables beacon-table beacon measurement mode. In this mode, the client measures beacons and returns a report with stored beacon information for any supported channel with the requested SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. and 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.. The client does not perform any additional measurements.

passive—Enables passive beacon measurement mode. In this mode, the client sets a measurement duration timer, and, at the end of the measurement duration, compiles all received beacons or probe response with the requested SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. and 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. into a measurement report.

NOTE: If a station doesn't support the selected measurement mode, it returns a Beacon Measurement Report with the Incapable bit set in the Measurement Report Mode field. Default Mode: beacon-table

beacon-table

no

Negates any configured parameter.

random-interval <random-interval>

This value is used to set the Randomization Interval field in the Beacon Report Request frame. The Randomization Interval is used to specify the desired maximum random delay in the measurement start time. It is expressed in units of TUs (Time Units). A Randomization Interval of 0 in a measurement request indicates that no random delay is to be used.

0 – 65535

0

reg-class {1|12}

This option is used to specify the Regulatory Class field in the Beacon Report Request frame.

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 bandsBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation., 12.

The specification uses a modulation scheme known as orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) that is especially well suited to use in office settings.

request-info <request-info>

This option is used to indicate the contents of the Request Information IE that could be present in the Beacon Report Request frame. The Request Information IE is present for all Measurement Modes except the Beacon Table mode. It consists of a list of Element IDs that should be included by the client in the response frame.

Any valid element ID in the x/y/z format. For example, 0/21/22.

rpt-condtion <rpt-condition>

This option is used to indicate the value for the Reporting Condition field in the Beacon Reporting Information sub-element present in the Beacon Report Request frame.

0 - 255

0

rpt-detail

This option is used to indicate the value for the Detail field in the Reporting Detail sub-element present in the Beacon Report Request frame.

Disabled

ssid <ssid>

A unique character string (sometimes referred to as a network name), consisting of no more than 32 characters. The SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. is case-sensitive (for example, WLANWireless Local Area Network. WLAN is a 802.11 standards-based LAN that the users access through a wireless connection.- 01).
