SNMP bsnMobileStationProtocol newer protocols

StefanE

On our 9800 I see clients connecting with bsnMobileStationProtocol numbers 10 and 11. The MIB only knows types 1 through 7. What do protocols 10 and 11 stand for?

Example output of an snmpwalk to.1.3.6.1.4.1.14179.2.1.4.1.25 is:

AIRESPACE-WIRELESS-MIB::bsnMobileStationProtocol.'......' = INTEGER: 11
AIRESPACE-WIRELESS-MIB::bsnMobileStationProtocol.'..w...' = INTEGER: dot11n24(6)
AIRESPACE-WIRELESS-MIB::bsnMobileStationProtocol.'....Q.' = INTEGER: 10

You're obviously looking at an old version of the MIB!

Object bsnMobileStationProtocol
OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.14179.2.1.4.1.25
Type INTEGER
Permission read-only
Status current
Values 1 : dot11a
2 : dot11b
3 : dot11g
4 : unknown
5 : mobile
6 : dot11n24
7 : dot11n5
8 : ethernet
9 : dot3
10 : dot11ac

Interesting that 11 is still missing there!  Doesn't look like they're keeping the tools up to date anymore either! 
I expect 11 is dot11ax.

Thanks Rich, that is most helpful. Indeed I had an outdated version of the MIB but thanks to your link I now have a 2014 version instead of a 2006

Not only is 11 missing, I even found clients connecting as protocol 12!
