I am setting up an Aruba IAP335 for forwarding IoT BLE beacons using WebSocket. I have set up a radio-profile and a transportProfile.
Aruba_ap1# show running-config | include iot
iot radio-profile test
iot transportProfile testprofile
iot use-radio-profile test
iot useTransportProfile testprofile
I also set up a WebSocket server and it can receive some messages forwarded by the AP. However, the message has no BLE data. Something like below
mac: "some mac address"
Apparently the AP is not doing BLE scanning. I noticed the following setting "APB: Disabled" in the radio configuration. Even though I chose "Beaconing" it is still disabled.
Radio Information TI ONBOARD Internal BLE
Radio Profile Type --
Zigbee Supported No
APB MAC Address "some mac address"
Operational Mode Beaconing (APB: Disabled)
Operational BluOS FW Version OAD B 1.2-42
Bundled BluOS Upgrade Enabled (-1)
Bundled BluOS Images Bank A(/aruba/bin/UpgradeImage_AP_OAD-A_1.2-42.bin) Bank B(/aruba/bin/Beacon_AP_OAD-B_1.2-42.bin)
OTA FW BluOS Upgrade Disabled
FW Stack Supported No
Don't know if this is the root cause and how to solve it. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Without further details of your configuration it is hard to help you. Please provide some more details. Here are some troubleshooting commands.
Check IoT configuration applied to AP
show ap debug ble-config
Check BLE table and radios:
show ap debug ble-table all
Check IoT transport connection status:
show ap debug ble-relay iot-profile
show ap debug ble-relay report
Troubleshoot IoT transport websocket log:
show ap debug ble-relay ws-log <profile>
Check IoT transport statistics e.g., for dropped messages:
show ap debug ble-relay tag-report
To enable the IoT radio for BLE scanning & beaconing (the default and only supported by AP-3xx) should look like this:
iot radio-profile int-ble
iot use-radio-profile int-ble
Aruba_ap1# show iot radio-profile test
BLE Opmode :scanning beaconing
BLE Console :on
BLE TxPower (dBm) :0
Zigbee Mode :coordinator
Zigbee Channel(s) :auto
