SNMP::Info::Airespace is a subclass of SNMP::Info that provides an interface to AIRESPACE-WIRELESS-MIB and AIRESPACE-SWITCHING-MIB. These MIBs are used in Airespace wireless switches, as well as, products from Cisco, Nortel, and Alcatel which are based upon the Airespace platform.

The Airespace platform utilizes intelligent wireless switches which control thin access points. The thin access points themselves are unable to be polled for end station information.

This class emulates bridge functionality for the wireless switch. This enables end station MAC addresses collection and correlation to the thin access point the end station is using for communication.

Normally you use or create a subclass of SNMP::Info that inherits this one. Do not use directly.

For debugging purposes call the class directly as you would SNMP::Info

 my $airespace = new SNMP::Info::Airespace(...);

Inherited Classes


Required MIBs



These are methods that return scalar value from SNMP







Returns 00000011. Class emulates Layer 2 functionality for Thin APs through proprietary MIBs.


These are methods that return tables of information in the form of a reference to a hash.



Returns reference to map of IIDs to Interface index.

Extends ifIndex to support thin APs as device interfaces.


Returns reference to map of IIDs to ports. Thin APs are implemented as device interfaces. The thin AP MAC address is used as the port identifier.


Interface name. Returns (ifName) for Ethernet interfaces and (bsnAPName) for thin AP interfaces.


Description of the interface. Returns (ifDescr) for Ethernet interfaces and (bsnAPLocation) for thin AP interfaces.


Returns reference to map of IIDs to current link duplex. Ethernet interfaces only.


Returns reference to hash of IIDs to admin duplex setting. Ethernet interfaces only.


Simulates bridge MIB by returning reference to a hash containing the index for both the keys and values.
