On AIR-CAP3500 Series APs, which AP mode allows you to intensively analyze the frequency spectrum and detect interferers?
On AIR-CAP3500 Series APs, the mode that allows you to intensively analyze the frequency spectrum and detect interferers is the Monitor mode.
The Monitor mode enables the access point to operate as a dedicated sensor for detecting and reporting rogue access points and clients, as well as for performing spectrum analysis. This mode is specifically designed for wireless security and interference troubleshooting.
In the Monitor mode, the access point can continuously scan all the channels in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands to detect and report any unauthorized access points and clients that might pose a security threat. It can also perform spectrum analysis by detecting and reporting any sources of interference that might affect the quality of the wireless signal.
The Sniffer mode is used for capturing and analyzing network traffic, and it is not specifically designed for wireless security or interference troubleshooting. The SE-Connect mode is used for connecting an access point to a wireless LAN controller, and the Analyzer mode is not a valid mode for AIR-CAP3500 Series APs. The Rogue Detector mode is used for detecting and reporting rogue access points and clients, but it does not perform spectrum analysis.
