    • Once an Instant ON AP is added to a site, there are totally 4 possible states an AP can be in,.
    1. Offline
    2. Synchronizing
    3. Active
    4. Restarting
    • Offline:
      • The APs keep polling continuously to the Cloud Server to make sure it has Internet reachability.
      • The polling happens using https port (443).
      • When the polling fails to Cloud Servers, the AP is considered to be Offline.
      • Any config change done to the site will not be pushed to the AP/s when the state is offline.

    • Synchronizing :
      • The state becomes Synchronizing, when a Config Push from the Portal / App is in progress.
      • For example, when a new Network is created, the portal / App pushes the new Network to the APs via Cloud Server.
      • The state remains until the configuration is synced.

    • Active :

    • When the state is Offline, the State Duration shows how long the AP was not able to communicate with the Cloud.
    • When the state is Restarting, the State Duration shows the time duration since the Restart button was clicked.
