What happen when does AP convert into Monitor mode?

Hi,

 

 What is AP doing with SSID when it is in monitor mode? does AP disable the SSID? or does AP only hide the SSID?

 

Thanks for your help,

An AP in monitor mode does not broadcast any SSIDs. It listens, does rogue containment, triangulation, spectrum analysis etc.

Tl;dr Air Monitors don't support client access.
