Configures the ExtremeLocation server‘s hostname on the RF Domain. When configured, RF Domain access points use a Websocket to forward 802.11 frames and BLE beacons to the specified ExtremeLocation server.

Starting with WiNG 7.1.2, AP5XX APs will not use WIPS to collect WiFi packets and BLE (iBeacons and Eddystone) beacons. The information will be collected in the Collector Table and forwarded to the ExtremeLocation server from the Collector Table.

ExtremeLocation is a highly scalable indoor locationing platform that gathers location-related analytics, such as visitor trends, peak and off-peak times, dwell time, heat-maps, etc. to enable entrepreneurs deeper visibility at a venue. To enable the location tracking system, the ExtremeLocation server should be up and running and the RF Domain configuration should point to the ExtremeLocation server.

Supported in the following platforms:

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


location-server 1 ip <EL-SERVER-IP/HOSTNAME> {port <1-65535>}


location-server 1 ip <IP/HOSTNAME> {port <1-65535>}
location-server 1 ip <IP/HOSTNAME> Identifies the ExtremeLocation server by its hostname
  • 1 – Sets the server ID as 1. As of now only one ExtremeLocation server is configurable.
    • ip <IP/HOSTNAME> – Enter ExtremeLocation server‘s hostname. This is the ExtremeLocation server designated to receive RSSI scan data from a WiNG dedicated sensor.
      Note: Enter the server‘s hostname and not the IP address, as the IP address is likely to change periodically in order to balance load across multiple Location server instances.
port <1-65535> Optional. Configures the port where the ExtremeLocation server is reachable.
  • <1-65535> – Specify a port from 1 - 65535.
    Note: By default, the ExtremeLocation server is reachable on port 443.

Enabling Data (WiFi and BLE Beacons) forwarding to the ExtremeLocation Server

  1. Configure sensor policy.
    nx9500-6C8809(config-sensor-policy-ble)#rssi-interval-duration 35
  2. In the RF Domain context:
    1. Use the sensor policy.
      nx9500-6C8809(config-rf-domain-test)#use sensor-policy ble
    2. Configure the ExtremeLocation server hostname.
      nx9500-6C8809(config-rf-domain-test)#location-server 1 ip feeds.extremelocation.com
    3. Configure the ExtremeLocation TenantID.
      nx9500-6C8809(config-device-94-9B-2C-13-40-38)#location-tenantid 1234
