What is the maximum distance that AM(Air Monitor) can detect?

I'm going to install Air Monitor.

However, I wonder how to deploy AM.

What is the maximum distance that AM can detect?

And can I check it with official documents?

Re: What is the maximum distance that AM(Air Monitor) can detect?

Air monitors typically only need to see management frames, which are usually sent at the lowest rates, and can be seen from very far away.  What you will do with those Air monitors will determine how far apart you put them.  Detailed information on what you should deploy is here:  https://www.arubanetworks.com/pdf/technology/tb_air_monitors.pdf

Thank you for your answer.

 

You have already verified the document you have given us.

 

I'm just wondering how far I can detect when I'm operating in AM-mode.

 

Can't I check forever?
