AM amount


As far, as I know, it's recommended by Aruba Networks to set 1 Air Monitor for each 4-5 Access Points.
Can anyone give a reference to documentation where it is mentioned.

Re: AM amount





Chapter 2:



Air monitors: Deploy AMs at a ratio of approximately one AM for every four APs deployed, and around the building perimeter for increased security and location accuracy. AMs perform many of the intrusion detection system (IDS) duties for the network, including rogue AP containment. AMs help to form accurate heat maps that display graphical RF data. Aruba considers dedicated AMs to be a best practice for security because they provide full-time surveillance of the air. Use the AP-105 as AMs, because these are dual-radio APs with full spectrum analysis support.
