How does presence Analytics feature of Aruba Central analyze user traffic patters?
Q:

How does presence Analytics feature of Aruba Central analyze user traffic patters in public venues and enterprise environments.

 



A:

When the Presence Analytics service is enabled on the APs deployed in the network, Central receives RSSI feeds on the user traffic presence from the APs. The administrators can create labels for venues and assign these labels to the APs.

 

The traffic presence metrics are classified based on the following user traffic patterns:

 

  • Passer By—An associated or unassociated client who is in vicinity of a specific site and has an RSSI value greater than or equal to -90 dBm.

 

  • Visitor—A client who spends at least one minute at the site. The traffic presence for such a user must be equal to or more than the RSSI threshold value set in the Presence Anayltics > Settings page. By default, the RSSI threshold value is set to -65 dBm.

 

  • Engaged—A visitor whose dwelling time is more than 5 minutes or the value configured for dwelling time in the Presence Analytics > Settings page.”
