Track Tagged Assets Using Optimized Monitor Mode on APs
To optimize monitoring and location calculation of tags, you can enable Tracking Optimized Monitor Mode (TOMM) on up to four channels within the 2.4-GHz band (802.11b/g radio) of an access point. This allows you to focus channel scans only on those channels on which tags are usually programmed to operate (such as channels 1, 6, and 11).
After enabling Monitor mode at the access point level, you must then enable TOMM and assign monitoring channels on the 802.11b/g radio of the access point.
To set enable TOMM and assign monitoring channels on the access point radio, follow these steps:
After enabling Monitor mode at the access point level, choose.
In the Access Points page, click thelink for the appropriate access point.

Click. Channel selection is saved.
