3500 AP for site survey?

Has anyone tried using a 3500 CleanAir AP as a site survey tool? Could you set it up in multiple locations temporarily and gather interference data and analize through WCS? This would use the 3500 AP like you would the Spectrum Expert product.

3500 AP for site survey?

I think others ahve used the 3500 as a site surevey AP using the 1252 IOS code.  But to gather RF data while doing a ste surevey, you might as well just use AirMagnet or any other toold like that.

Thanks, Scott *****Help out other by using the rating system and marking answered questions as "Answered"*****

I agree with scott.

You should deploy these as sensor and not as survey aps.

Thats the cost of doing Wifi im afraid. I always tell people. If you open up an auto repair shop and all you have is 1 screw driver and a wrench you will have lots of pain to do the job right.

Yes, you can connect a 3500 and do SA mode or local mode. If you have a MSE you can record 1 year worth of data. See attached of an example ..
