This is the second in series of blogs discussing various features of the Cisco Mobility Services Engine (MSE). This post describes some specific features of MSE that can help improve your CleanAir experience.
In my last MSE blog post, I talked about how the MSE can help a network administrator detect interference sources in a wireless network. Once the initial version of the software went out, we experimented and found some interesting use cases that inspired us to create the following enhancements to further improve the MSE experience:
1. Zone of Impact: A NCS map shows both the location of the device and the zone of impact of a particular interferer. The zone of impact is the area that an interferer affects in its immediate locality. It has two fields associated with it: the radius and the color. The stronger the transmit power of the device, the greater its reach, hence a larger radius. Similarly, the stronger the severity of the device, the darker its color on the map.
