Radio Usage on AirWave

Hi guys,

 

I am browsing some graphs in AirWave but I am stuck in the RF Capacity graphs. This is the information in the user guide:

 

The top tables show the total number of clients that have connected over the last week (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) and the percentage of these that were above the usage threshold. The bottom graphs show
the number of clients that were connected during low and high channel utilization.

 

What' the exact meaning of channel usage? Is it the same that channel utilization? If I have a radio with 90% peak usage, what does this mean? And also what is the usage threshold and how can I configure it?

 

Many thanks,

Julián

Thanks Pavan,

 

But it doesn't explain the unit of channel usage/utilization? Is it usage of MB of the channel? Is it usage of number of clients supported by the radio? I think it means MB tx/rx on the radio, please confirm.
