Cisco Integrates Cognio's Wireless Management Tools

Focus is on addressing and mitigating wireless LAN interface issues.

Users can set up SNMP traps using Cognio's Spectrum Expert that will detect both Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi interference. The traps contain information on the type of device causing interference, when the interference occurred and which access point was affected.

The management platform will then alert admins through e-mail or page when a problem occurs and enable them to access log files to see what is happening on the network.
