Information About Spectrum Expert Mode
The Cisco ® Spectrum Expert™ Wi-Fi integrates with the Cisco wireless network to deliver real-time spectrum intelligence for Wi-Fi networks. This solution detects, classifies, and locates sources of RF interference in the unlicensed 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz bands. With Cisco Spectrum Expert Wi-Fi the source of the interference can be determined allowing businesses to remove, move, shield, adjust, or replace the interference source. Organizations can troubleshoot their wireless networks to determine the root causes of interference problems and optimize network performance.
To achieve this, you need to configure the AP in the monitor mode to view all spectrum analysis for different channels in 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz bands. If you do not choose the monitor mode, you can view only the spectrum of the channels AP radio is actually using for serving clients. For example, if the AP is using channel 1 for 2.4-GHz and 40 for 5-GHz, only the data for channel 1 and 40 will be displayed in Cisco Spectrum expert.
