WiFiEagle represents a new and innovative series of PC-based, WiFi diagnostic tools used for installing, troubleshooting and monitoring 802.11 wireless networks. These tools are unique in their use of 802.11 devices for performing channel analysis. Employing patent-pending IMMI (Indirect Measurement of Microwave Interference) technology, WifiEagle analyzers provide unprecedented visibility into the performance of a wireless network. The information collected and displayed by WiFiEagle helps to simplify troubleshooting of interference-related problems and predicts throughput performance for each 802.11 channel.
WifiEagle employs IMMI technology with 802.11 hardware to perform data acquisition — hence, the results truly reflect how RF interference in the local environment affects throughput performance of 802.11 channels, which is not possible using an RF spectrum analyzer. IMMI technology and WifiEagle are the only solution on the market today that allows both experts and non-experts to quantify and predict throughput performance of each 802.11 channel. By virtue of the fact an 802.11 channel analyzer views the RF world through the eyes of an 802.11 device, then the diagnostic information it provides more closely mirrors the performance you can expect from your own 802.11 client adapters. This makes it easier to troubleshoot and fix problems and allows you to make better-informed decisions regarding how best to configure your wireless network for optimal throughput performance. IMMI technology and WifiEagle represent a true breakthrough in the area of WiFi diagnostics — not only because they predict throughput performance but also from a cost standpoint.
