A few months ago in a proof of concept of the HiveManager, a demonstration of how to block any wireless signal different from that radiated by the same Access Point Aerohive, could you indicate what are the steps to activate this function?

I'm assuming you're referring to WIPS, Wireless Intrusion Prevention System. Once transmitted, there is no way to block a wireless signal, only mitigate it from affecting your air space. Focus on In Net offenders.

In NG, it's under Configure, Common Objects, Security, WIPS Policies. In Classic, it's under Configuration, Advanced Configuration, Security Policies, WIPS Policies.  

BE AWARE, if you interfere with a neighboring WLAN, there may be legal repercussions. The best method is to identify the culprits and, if they're within your jurisdiction, disable the radio. Otherwise try to work with your neighbors, turning down power, switching channels, etc.
