Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

An AP can work in two modes:
  • normal: indicates the normal mode.
    • If air scan functions (such as WIDS and terminal location) are disabled on a radio, the radio is used to transmit common WLAN services.
    • If air scan functions are enabled on a radio, the radio transmits common WLAN services and also provides the monitoring function. A transient increase in the WLAN service latency may occur, which does not affect network access. However, if any latency-sensitive service (such as videoconferencing) is running, it is recommended that a separate radio be used for air scan.
  • monitor: indicates the monitor mode.

    In this mode, the radio can only transmit WLAN services scanned by the air interface but cannot transmit common WLAN services.

Precautions

The change of the radio working mode can lead to interrupted services. Users cannot associate with the AP when its radio is working in monitoring mode.

The configuration in the AP radio view has a higher priority than that in the AP group radio view.

In monitor mode, the working channels and power of AP radios change at any time. In this situation, the working channels and power of the AP radios display as -.

Example

# Set the working mode of radio 0 in AP group office to monitor.
<Huawei> system-view
[Huawei] wlan
[Huawei-wlan-view] ap-group name office
[Huawei-wlan-ap-group-office] radio 0
[Huawei-wlan-group-radio-office/0] work-mode monitor
Warning: Modify the work mode may cause business interruption, continue?[y/n]
