IMMI Technology versus RF Spectrum Analysis
When troubleshooting an 802.11 network it is not possible to predict how it will behave when you are armed solely with RF measurements. This is why we focus on performance metrics and IMMI technology — because they more accurately predict how your wireless network will actually perform. Though RF spectrum analysis remains a popular tool for troubleshooting interference-related problems, IMMI technology holds greater promise since it excels at computing the best WiFi channel — that is, the channel with the greatest available bandwidth and least affected by RF interference from other wireless devices. IMMI technology employs 802.11 hardware and sees the RF environment through the same eyes as the wireless devices in your network. There is a new mantra brewing — “Using the (802.11) infrastructure to troubleshoot the infrastructure…” People understand this to mean that when it comes to troubleshooting 802.11 networks, then 802.11 devices make better diagnostic tools than spectrum analyzers. And that’s because a spectrum analyzer knows nothing about the 802.11 standard, its internal protocols, or the methods it employs to mitigate interference from other wireless devices.read more
WifiBuilder — Diagnostic & Production Access Point
WifiBuilder 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.read more
WifiExplorer — 802.11 Network Discovery For The Android Platform
WifiExplorer is an 802.11 network discovery tool — also known as a Wi-Fi scanner. It was designed for mobile platforms — in particular, Android phones and tablets. Using your device’s built-in 802.11 radio, it collects information about nearby wireless access points and displays the data in useful ways. The diagnostic views are helpful when installing and troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks.
WifiExplorer uses 5 diagnostic views that collectively provide an overview of your current Wi-Fi environment. In ‘normal’ mode all APs are displayed, while in ‘Monitor Mode’ only the APs of interest are displayed.
WifiExplorer is a feature-rich, easy to use Wi-Fi diagnostic tool you are bound to love. The colorful charts help make troubleshooting a breeze. Enjoy it for FREE on Android platforms….read more
WifiEagle Single- and Dual-Band 802.11 Channel Analyzers — Quantify And Predict Throughput Performance Of Each 802.11 Channel
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.read more
