The Industry’s First Diagnostic And Production Wi-Fi Access PointWifiBuilder is the industry’s first diagnostic and production Wi-Fi access point. A new type of wireless network tool that excels at determining your wireless network’s best channel. WifiBuilder is both a diagnostic tool AND a high-end, dual-band, 802.11N access point. Use it in diagnostic mode for troubleshooting and detecting RF interference that cripples the performance of your Wi-Fi network (using IMMI technology it computes which channel has the greatest available bandwidth). Or use it in production mode, configure the WifiBuilder access point to use the best channel for optimal performance and leave it in place — for use as your normal AP. Profiler24x is a Wi-Fi diagnostic tool used for installing, troubleshooting and monitoring 802.11 wireless networks in the 2.4x GHz band. It is unique in its use of an access point (WifiBuilder) in performing channel analysis. Employing patent-pending IMMI (Indirect Measurement of Microwave Interference) technology Profiler24x provides unprecedented visibility into the performance of a wireless network. The information collected and displayed by Profiler24x helps to simplify troubleshooting of interference-related problems and predicts bandwidth performance for each 802.11 channel.
PC Magazine announces that WifiBuilder has won the seventh annual PCMag.com Best of the Year 2011 Award in the category of Network Software.
WifiBuilder received a great review from PC Magazine — 4.5 stars and an Editor’s Choice award.
Why Use WifiBuilder ?
Running a custom Linux kernel, the WifiBuilder AP communicates with diagnostic applications that are run from your Windows desktop or laptop machine. These diagnostic applications are used for installing, troubleshooting and monitoring 802.11 wireless networks. That is, in addition to being used as your normal AP for wireless network communication, WifiBuilder is designed to be used as a diagnostic tool — performing data acquisition and communicating with a Windows application that analyzes the results and displays them using graphical charts. When the WifiBuilder AP is left in-place as your normal AP then its diagnostic capabilities are always available when the need arises.
Minimum requirements for running Profiler24xYou need to install version 3.5, or above, of Microsoft’s .NET Framework before installing and running Profiler24x. Profiler24x runs on the following Microsoft operating systems: Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit).
Pro Audio White Space Finder is a “game-changer”
The industry’s first product that includes both realtime RF spectrum analysis and intermodulation analysis
Precise, wideband RF spectrum scanning, visualization and channel coordination of the RF environmentIn a hostile RF environment why leave your wireless planning to chance ?! Take the guess work out of configuring your wireless audio gear — Pro Audio White Space Finder / RF Spectrum Analyzer enables you to choose the optimal channel assignments — free from RF interference and intermodulation distortion. The PAWS4400 analyzer offers detailed RF spectrum scans using easy to view, graphical displays, along with interference-free channel assignments. Real-time RF spectrum analysis combined with our intermodulation distortion (IMD) module delivers optimal channel assignments for even the most demanding RF environments.
PAWS4400 Was Designed With These Goals In Mind:
• Combine RF spectrum analysis and intermodulation analysis in a single tool.
• Automatic charting of open white spaces (RF frequencies) in a real-time RF environment.
• Graphical UI that is easy to use; lays-out the relevant data in a clear, concise way.
• The UI is tablet-PC friendly.
• Fast data acquisition, display, and channel assignments.
• Sets up the RF spectrum analyzer with proper default settings for span, RBW, VBW, image suppression, scaling, and sensitivity with minimal user input. This allows users with little to no experience with spectrum analyzers to get right to work.
• User-definable threshold for open white space.
• Sensitive and accurate measurements.
Minimum requirements for running Pro Audio White Space FinderYou need to install version 3.5, or above, of Microsoft’s .NET Framework before installing and running Pro Audio White Space Finder. The software runs on the following Microsoft operating systems: Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit).
Introducing Intermod Assist
Intermodulation Calculator and Frequency Coordination SoftwareIntroducing the latest, low-cost development in RF intermodulation analysis and frequency coordination — Intermod Assist. Intermod Assist is a new, ground-breaking software tool specifically designed for the wireless, professional audio and video industries. Its computational engine rapidly generates frequency sets of intermodulation distortion-free radio frequencies, applying user-defined signal bandwidths and channel spacing. These frequency sets can be used to coordinate transmitter frequencies where the goal is to assign the most reliable channels to your wireless audio and video gear — that is, channels free of intermodulation interference.
Why Use Intermod Assist ?
In the wireless audio industry, RF interference and intermodulation distortion have become major concerns — the number and variety of new and different wireless devices that operate in the UHF band can wreck havoc when it comes to configuring wireless audio gear. In the shrinking frequency space allotted for wireless audio equipment it has become a true challenge to assign interference-free channels to wireless audio equipment. Intermod Assist is an invaluable tool that can be used to facilitate frequency coordination and channel assignments in the most complex RF environments. Intermod Assist saves valuable setup time by computing the most reliable frequencies — free of interference from intermodulation products.
Minimum requirements for running Intermod AssistYou need to install version 3.5, or above, of Microsoft’s .NET Framework before installing and running Intermod Assist. Intermod Assist runs on the following Microsoft operating systems: Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit).
