Airtime Utilization Report

The Airtime Utilization Report provides an overview of airtime utilization.

From the navigation bar, select Report > Airtime Utilization.

The Airtime Utilization Report lists the APs by airtime utilization for radio 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. It also lists the airtime utilization trend over time based on APs and radio.

Figure 1. Airtime Utilization Report (Upper Portion Only)

The Airtime Utilization Report consists of the following components:

  • Overview tile
  • Top 10 APs by Airtime Utilization chart
  • Top APs by Airtime Utilization for 2.4 GHz table
  • Top APs by Airtime Utilization for 5 GHz table
  • Airtime Utilization Trend graphs

Overview Tile

The Overview tile of the Airtime Utilization Report displays the aggregate utilization rates for all of the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radios on all APs for the selected time period.
