Sorry for disturbing, we want build our own location system from RTLS packets collected from ARUBA AP, but found there is little information about this from internet and it's diffcult to decode the information in RTLS packets. Now we could only decode the packets header. Do you have experience in this and could shed some light on this:
For example, below information is the whole packet contents:
We could decode the packet header:
bytes[0-1] 00:14 Message type: AR_COMPOUND_MESSAGE_REPORT
bytes[2-3] fc:c5 Message id: fc:c5
bytes[3-4] 01:00 Major vision: 01 Minor Vision :00
bytes[5-6] 00:5c Data Length
bytes[7-12] 9c:1c:12:ce:8f:06 AP MAC address
bytes[13-14] 00:00 Padding
But from offset 14bytes we couldn't found any clue to decode it:

I suspect Aruba will consider the contents to be somewhat proprietary.
I've been looking at the API for data from the Aruba ALE server - the ALE server collects the Aruba proprietary data from iAP, Controller and Airwave, interprets it and transmits it in a well defined format.
Now that I type this, I'm thinking that studying the ALE API document, you might be able to interpret the raw RTLS data, but might be easier to use ALE to translate.
if I've helped, please give kudos
