Cisco WCS Location Ability to locate any 802.11 active device Accuracy: 90% to within 10 meters, 50% to within 5 meters Depends on environment characteristics and calibration On demand, one device with Cisco WCS alone Up to 2500 devices with Cisco Location Appliance 30-day history configurable Can identify and locate non-802.11 interference with Spectrum Intelligence sensor 23. Location Tracking Methods RF Closest AP Pro: Simple, with no new technology requirement Con: Limited accuracy, since an AP can easily cover several thousand square feet RF Triangulation Pro: More accurate than a single RF RSSI Con:Limited accuracy does not account for effects of building material which may cause reflection, attenuation or multipath RF Fingerprinting Pro: GPS-like accuracy Con: More comprehensive requires RF prediction tools 24. Location Tracking Using Closest AP 25. Location Tracking Using Triangulation 26. Location Tracking Using RF Fingerprinting RF fingerprinting traces signal strength for every signal heard by a Cisco AP in the network, which allows accounting for reflection and multipath. Then a RF fingerprint is created from every point on the coverage map, which allows Cisco WCS to accurately place an icon and create a probability color grid. 27.
