No rogues detected after enabling WIPS

  • Updated 3 years ago
I am trying to evaluate Aerohive rogue mitigation ability. I have created WIPS and Radio policy profiles in order to activate rogue detection and applied the policy to my config, but no rogues show up in the monitor.
I am using a single Aerohive AP390. Please advise.

At the risk of sounding obvious, do you have known rogues in radio range of the AP390?

Jenna,
I just realized you mentioned you have a single AP390. Unfortunately, WIPS is one of the features missing from the current 6.0 code-base for that platform (the other major missing feature is Spectrum Analysis).

We are working on a release that will bring these platforms up to version-parity with the rest of our product line and adding WIPS and Spectrum Analysis, but my best guess right now about a release date would be late in Q2 of this calendar year.

Thank you Mike. Can you tell me what devices/platforms do support WIPS?

Jenna,
The AP370 and AP390 are the only two APs we sell today that do not yet have WIPS available. Since you already recognize the value of deploying .11ac APs and are interested in our other platforms, I would suggest the AP230 to augment or replace your AP390. Please note tho that the 230 is an internal antenna device. If you want .11ac and external antennas then our only other platform is the AP1130.

Hi Jenna, 

All the rest:

AP121, 141, 230, 330, 350, BR200 and BR200-WP. I have to verify the AP1130.

It is also supported on the older models: AP110/120/320/340/170
