We’re taking a dive into how a multi-function radio can help network engineers with many tasks.
A multi-function radio is an additional radio not used for client access. It’s mostly used in listening mode.
These are the six functions of the multi-function radio:
- Packet Capture
- WIPS Detection and Prevention
- RRM Scanning
- Spectrum Analysis
- Client Locationing
- Client Simulation and Network Assurance
An advantage of a multi-function radio is to perform various tasks without having to go off-channel. When a client serving radio has to perform these functions it needs to stop serving clients for a set of time and return to a client serving mode.
The beauty of the multi-function radio is it can always perform these functions without any gaps in time serving clients.
