Configure Locations

The Locations Navigator enables you to define a hierarchical structure to organize how your wireless network is deployed. The folders and floors can be based on any criteria, such as the geographic location where the APs are deployed, business units and organizational departments, and test and productions networks.

The Locations Navigator synchronizes location and floor information from the locations data in Manage.

To configure locations and floors, select System > Navigator, then right-click on a folder or floor to perform actions on the location hierarchy.
