SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor provides the capability to monitor wireless networks with any 802.11 IEEE‑compliant autonomous access point or wireless controller. You can retrieve details about access points (AP), wireless clients, wireless controllers, thin APs, and rogue APs.
Benefits of a Wireless Network Monitor
The integrated Wireless Poller in SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) helps you easily manage wireless, thin, and autonomous access points and their associated clients. You can monitor wireless devices alongside your wired devices and manage alerts, reports, and Top 10 lists for your infrastructure including wireless controllers and devices from Aruba®, Cisco®, Ruckus®, Motorola®, and Meru Networks®.
Implementing a Wireless Network Monitor
SolarWinds NPM automatically recognizes wireless APs and controllers as wireless devices once the network discovery process is completed.
How Wireless Network Monitoring Works
Wireless network management software keeps track of thin access points and their corresponding client details including client names, signal strength, IP addresses, MAC addresses, and an Rx/Tx summary. With SolarWinds NPM, you can access over 15 out-of-the-box wireless reports, including wireless availability, average and peak number of clients, and rogue access points over varying time frames.
