ePMP 4600 multiple WLAN interfaces in SNMP MIB

Hi all,

The ePMP 4600 shows two radio interfaces in SNMP:
IF-MIB::ifDescr.1 = STRING: WLAN interface 1
IF-MIB::ifDescr.2 = STRING: WLAN interface 2
IF-MIB::ifDescr.3 = STRING: LAN interface 1
IF-MIB::ifDescr.4 = STRING: LAN interface 2

But, in the documentation and the web app I can only find any reference to the first one. The second radio interface has a distinct MAC address and shows as Up but does not have any nonzero counters in SNMP.

Can anyone explain what this is?

I wonder if this has to do with the 4600 having 2 ethernet ports (copper gig-e & SFP+), and eventually, the firmware will support split sector mode, so it will have RF stats for each of these sectors?

ePMP4600 has 2 Radio interfaces.
The main one and the secondary one that is allocated for Spectrum Analyser.

Thank you.


That makes sense, thanks for the answer Fedor.
