This page configures this access point to work with your network administrator's Simple

Network Management Protocol (SNMP) station. In addition to enabling SNMP, you must create a user with the SNMP capability to serve as an SNMP community.

■ Simple Network Management Protocol: This setting must be enabled to use SNMP.

■ System Description: The system's device type as listed at the bottom of the page.

■ System Name: The name of this access point. This will be reported to your SNMP management station as the name of the device when you are using SNMP to communicate.

■ System Location: Enter the location of this access point, such as a building name or other identifier.

■ System Contact: Enter the name of the System Administrator responsible for this access point.

■ SNMP Trap Destination: The IP address of the SNMP management station. If using DNS, enter a host name that would resolve into an IP address.

■ SNMP Trap Community: The SNMP community name required by the Trap Destination before it will record traps sent by the access point.

■ Browse Management Information Base (MIB): This link allows direct browsing of named objects in the access point's MIB.

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is enabled from the Services> SNMP menu selection.

The system information (System Name, System Location, and System Contact) for the AP which the AP sends to the SNMP management station for SNMPqueries is configured or queried from this interface.

From the lower section of the SNMP service screen, the specific parameters used by the AP for SNMP messaging are configured.

The SNMP Community string(s) used to communicate with SNMP management entities is configured from this screen.

The SNMP Trap Destination, which is the Network Management station used to collect SNMP "traps" or defined system performance or exception thresholds is configured here. An SNMP Trap Community string is also used to make sure that the Trap destination has the correct string to accept SNMP traps from the AP.

In addition, the specific events which trigger an SNMP trap are specified from this interface.


Access points with v11.0 or higher VxWorks and all versions of IOS firmware have the ability to use filtering options. This might be done to preserve wireless bandwidth and improve WLAN performance. There is no latency associated with filtering due to faster processing and more RAM on the access points.
