Airwave - interferers not visible in VisualRF?

So my customer made a valid remark in that he could not see any interferers on his VisualRF maps.

While I cannot find an explanation of what Airwave classifies as "interferers", I'm guessing this would come from the controller classification  the RAPIDS classification.

In RAPIDS we can see a ton of Suspected Neighbors, but no actual Neighbors.

 

Is this the reason we can't see any interferers on the map? Caus we've only classified them as Suspected Neighbors instead of actual Neighbors?

Or under what circumstance does VRF put interferers on its maps?

"Interferers" come from devices detected using the controller's Spectrum Monitoring; non-wifi interferers.

Thanks Colin,

 

So basically just turn all the AP-groups into (hybrid) spectrum-monitors and non-wifi interferers will start to pop up in VRF?

In theory, that is what you would do. In practice, Spectrum requires the RF protect license and the location on the VRF map is not exact, so you might question if you want to see an estimate of the location of alll of your Bluetooth devices in a map.
