Documenting Your Wi-Fi Network Doesn’t Have to be Painful
It’s true that Wi-Fi network documentation isn’t the most fun thing to do. In fact, it can be such an eye-rolling task that engineers in many organizations avoid it until necessary. In some cases, documentation is considered a low priority task – until a problem strikes.
When troubleshooting a critical problem, good Wi-Fi network documentation can mean the difference between quick resolution and costly downtime. Keeping documentation current doesn’t have to be difficult. Networking testing tools like the EtherScope nXG and AirCheck G2 perform Wi-Fi network discovery and automatically map the Wi-Fi network as-built and can go a long way toward ensuring that engineers have access to updated documentation when a problem strikes.
