display ap radio-environment

display ap radio-environment


The display ap radio-environment command displays air interface environment information about AP radios.


display ap radio-environment [ radio radio-id ]





radio radio-id

Displays air interface environment information about the AP radio with a specified ID.

The radio ID must exist.

Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

When WLAN access experience is poor, you can run this command to view air interface environment information and Wi-Fi interference sources. The interference can be determined based on the noise floor, signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR), co-channel interference, and adjacent-channel interference. After this command is executed, radio scanning of the AP is automatically enabled, and the AP starts to scan the air interface environment of radios. You can run this command again to view air interface environment scanning results.


When you run this command for the first time, no air interface environment scanning result is displayed. To view air interface environment scanning results, run this command again.

After AP radio scanning is enabled using this command, the air interface performance of an AP is affected. If this command is not executed again after five minutes, AP radio scanning is automatically disabled.

If the radio radio-id parameter is not specified, air interface environment information about all radios of the AP is displayed.

In the scanning result, the channel utilization, co-channel interference, and adjacent-channel interference are calculated with the impact of non-Wi-Fi interference. However, non-Wi-Fi interference devices are not displayed in the interference source list.

Table 13-1  Description of the display ap radio-environment [ radio radio-id ] command output




Radio on which the air interface environment is scanned.


Scanning channel.


Working channel of the AP.


Scanning count.


Channel that has scanned a device.


Noise floor.


Channel utilization.


Co-channel interference.


Adjacent-channel interference.


Number of scanned APs.


Signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR).


MAC address of the scanned device.


Type of the scanned interference device.
  • i: WIDS device
  • p: Non-WIDS device


RSSI of the scanned device.


SSID to which the scanned device is connected.

If an AP detects that a channel has a high channel utilization (higher than 80%) or high co-channel interference (higher than 50%), another Wi-Fi device is using this channel and affects the local AP. In this case, it is recommended that the AP channel be switched using radio calibration or other methods.
