Use the sensor policy to collect RSSI data from WiNG sensor devices. Edit an existing policy or create a new sensor policy for controllers.
NoteSensor policy name cannot exceed 32 characters and cannot contain spaces. Define a name unique to the policy‘s channel and scan mode configuration to help differentiate it from other policies.
The Sensor Policy Details dashboard displays with the Scan Mode set to Default-Scan. The user configurable parameters on this dashboard differ, depending on which Scan Mode is selected.
|Channel||With Default-Scan selected:
The list of available scan channels is fixed and
defaulted in a spread pattern of channels 1, 6, 11, 36,
40, 44, and 48. You cannot change this channel
With Custom-Scan selected: A list of unique channels in the 2.4, 4.9, 5, and 6 GHz band can be collectively or individually enabled for customized channel scans and RSSI reporting
With Channel-Lock selected: The Channel, Channel Width, and Scan Weight fields are replaced by a Lock Frequency drop-down menu. Use this menu to lock the RSSI scan to one specific channel
|Channel Width||With Default-Scan selected:
Each channel‘s width is fixed and defaulted to either
40MHz-Upper (Ch 1), 40MHz-Lower (Ch 6 and CH 11) or
80MHz (CH 36, CH 40, CH 44 and CH 48)
With Custom-Scan selected: You can define the width for each selected channel. Note that many channels have their width fixed at 20MHz. 802.11a radios support 20 MHz and 40 MHz channel widths
With Channel-Lock selected: You cannot adjust the width between adjacent channels, because only one channel is locked
|Scan Weight||With Default-Scan selected:
Each default channel‘s scan is of equal duration (1000)
within the defined RSSI scan interval. No one channel
receives scan priority within the defined RSSI scan
With Custom-Scan selected: Each selected channel can have its weight prioritized in respect to the amount of time a scan is permitted within the defined RSSI scan interval
With Channel-Lock selected: With one channel locked for an RSSI scan, you cannot adjust scan weights for other, unlocked channels
