Device Config Commands

Configures the ExtremeLocation server‘s hostname on the AP. When configured, the access point uses 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.



The AP's radio should be in the radio-share or sensor mode and the AP's BLE radio should be in the le-sensor mode.

Supported in the following platforms:

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


location-server 1 ip <HOSTNAME> {port <1-65535>}


location-server 1 ip <HOSTNAME> {port <1-65535>}
location-server 1 ip <HOSTNAMEL> Identifies the ExtremeLocation server by its hostname
  • 1 – Sets the server ID as 1. As of now only one ExtremeLocation server is configurable.
    • 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 forwarding to the ExtremeLocation Server

  1. Configure sensor policy.
    nx9500-6C8809(config-sensor-policy-ble)#rssi-interval-duration 35
  2. In the AP's device context:
    1. Use the sensor policy.
      nx9500-6C8809(config-device-94-9B-2C-13-40-38)#use sensor-policy ble
    2. Configure the ExtremeLocation server hostname.
      nx9500-6C8809(config-device-94-9B-2C-13-40-38)#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
