WiFi Advisor

The first WiFi/WLAN analyzer offers numerous intuitive functions for quickly characterizing and optimizing WLAN networks in the home and for efficient fault diagnosis.

 

End users are increasingly dependent on WiFi connections to reliably deliver premium services, such as video and IPTV, to all endpoints in their homes.  These WiFi networks are extremely dynamic, with, for example, sporadic interference, other users adding networks in the same channel or in overlapping channels, and the number of WiFi devices continuing to grow. These changes have a major impact on performance and the quality of the customer experience (QoE). As a result, 40% of all incident reports today are due to WLAN issues. Technicians who install and maintain WiFi  in the home depend on reliable installation procedures as well as meaningful fault diagnostics.

WiFi Advisor consists of an iPad app and at least one WFED-300AC tester. WiFi Advisor is the first test solution that meets the specific requirements of installers of all qualification levels. It represents a new, visually enhanced testing concept. Its intuitive features allow rapid characterization and optimization, as well as immediate troubleshooting of home WLAN networks that are subject to severe changes and disruptive influences. The tester shows at a glance the actual power/throughput reserve of the WLAN in the entire home and informs the end customer directly and in an understandable way about important performance data.
