Sets a device‘s system clock. By default all WiNG devices are shipped with the time zone and time format set to UTC and 24-hour clock respectively. If a device‘s clock is set without resetting the time zone, the time is displayed relative to the UTC (Universal Time Coordinated) – Greenwich Time. To display time in the local time zone format, in the device‘s configuration mode, use the timezone command. You can also reset the time zone at the RF Domain level. When configured as RF Domain setting, it applies to all devices within the domain. We recommend that you reset the local time zone on the device prior to setting the clock.



This command and its syntax is common to both the User Executable and Privilege Executable configuration modes.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000
