With wireless systems it is very difficult to predict the propagation of radio waves and detect the presence of interfering signals without the use of test equipment. Radio waves don’t travel the same distance in all directions — instead walls, doors, elevator shafts, people, and other obstacles offer varying degrees of attenuation, which cause the Radio Frequency (RF) radiation pattern to be irregular and unpredictable. In order to achieve optimal reliability and throughput for your Wi-Fi (802.11) wireless network it is necessary to measure sources of interference that impact negatively on its performance.
Until recently there have been two primary techniques employed to troubleshoot wireless networks — network discovery and RF spectrum analysis. Network discovery is also commonly referred to as network site survey and Wi-Fi scanning. In addition to supporting network discovery and RF spectrum analysis, we have introduced innovative tools that broaden the range of troubleshooting techniques currently available. These new strategies are ‘Wi-Fi Channel Analysis’ and ‘Connection Performance Analysis’.
