A few years ago when we upgraded everything to AP-225's we were told our Air Monitors were not needed the newer access points could do both. We removed them but I have also heard that having dedicated Air Monitors works better having full time air monitors. Is there any advantage other then rogue detection? Does it help with sticky clients or interference.

Dedicated Air monitors are necessary for location tracking and dedicated IDS/IPS. Please see the article here: https://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Controller-Based-WLANs/Choosing-Between-Dedicated-and-Hybrid-Mode-Air-Monitors/ta-p/181920
