Q:

How can we identify the highest and current temperature of Aruba acesss points to avoid getting over heat and damage?



A:

 

Starting from 8.6.0.0, thermal sensors available in the 11ax Access points hardware will trigger the AP to switch to thermal shutdown mode with flashing red system LED on when any of the sensor’s temperature exceeds the specific high threshold defined for it. 


When AP is in overheat status, AP will do rebootstrap and will not connect to the controller until AP it is in cool down status.

Below are the command helps to identify the temperature level,
