The Cisco Aironet Active Sensor is a compact network sensor designed to monitor your wireless network.
With the Aironet Active Sensor, your IT department can simulate real-world client experiences so that it can validate wireless performance for critical venues and high-value locations such as conference halls and meeting rooms. Also, a scheduled test by the sensor helps make sure that your network can handle an influx of VIP clients so that they are able to have a smooth wireless experience free of drops and lag time. How does this device do all of this? Thanks to Cisco AirProbe, the Aironet Active Sensor can proactively test and accurately predict the user's experience.
This means that your wireless network won't be caught short when an increased number of devices connect to the network. You'll already know how much bandwidth is available immediately before the event, and you can adjust accordingly.
Not only does the Active Sensor brilliantly simulate and predict wireless performance, but it's also the perfect device for making sure that your network is running to its fullest potential. Using the Active Sensor, you can test your network with proactive monitoring capabilities. This capability allows you to learn about potential issues before it's too late.
The Active Sensor can be plugged in anywhere. Other sensor products are often at ceiling level, sometimes providing IT with a less-than-accurate network assessment, since most clients are at eye level. When installed at the level where most mobile devices are apt to be, the Active Sensor allows for a better understanding and a more comprehensive simulation of real clients.
The Aironet Active Sensor is fully compliant with the 802.11ac Wave 2 standard and has full Cisco DNA Assurance support with Cisco DNA Center. It comes with multiple powering options: Direct AC power plug, Power over Ethernet (PoE), Micro USB power
