Configures the RF Domain‘s geographic time zone. By default all WiNG devices are shipped with the time zone and time format set to UTC (Universal Time Coordinated) and 24-hour clock respectively. If the time zone is not reset, all devices within the RF Domain will display time relative to the UTC - Greenwich Time. Resetting the time zone is recommended, especially for RF Domains deployed across different geographical locations. The time zone can either be set on a specific device or on an RF Domain. When configured as RF Domain setting, it applies to all devices within the domain. For more information on configuring the time zone on a device, see timezone (device config mode).

Supported in the following platforms:

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