Configures the interval, in seconds, at which dedicated sensors scan channels for RSSI assessments and send the RSSI data obtained to a specified server resource

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Service Platforms — NX 75XX, NX 95XX, NX 96XX, VX 9000


rssi-interval-duration <1-60>


rssi-interval-duration <1-60>
rssi-interval-duration <1-60> Configures the RSSI interval duration in seconds. This is the interval at which the sensor scans channels for RSSI data and forwards the data to a dedicated server resource. The server calculates real-time locations of Wi-Fi devices based on the this data.
  • <1-60> – Specify the RSSI interval duration from 1 - 60 seconds. The default is 1 second.

The channels scanned for RSSI assessment depends on the scan-mode selected. For more information, see scan-mode and custom-scan.

Ensure that the server‘s IP address or hostname has been configured in the access point sensor‘s RF Domain context.
