AirCheck G2

Channels Utilization

Illustrates usage of WLAN channels. The bar graph shows how much of that channel’s capability is being used by 802.11 devices (in blue) and non-802.11 devices (shown in grey). The taller the bar, the noisier the channel. The dark dots show how many access points are using that channel. Select channel 11.
 
Benefits: Easily identify problems with co-channel interference, adjacent channel interference, or overloaded channels.

Capabilities

AutoTest

AirCheck G2 performs the following five essential Wi-Fi tests and provides a pass/fail indication of the wireless environment, as well as identifies common problems — for any level of expertise:

– 802.11 Utilization – Reports channels in each band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) with the highest airtime utilization.

– Non-802.11 Utilization – Reports channels with the highest non-802.11 airtime utilization, indicative of interference sources and high noise levels.

– Co-Channel Interference – Reports channels with the most APs on the same channel that exceed the minimum signal level threshold.

– Adjacent Channel Interference – Reports interference on a channel caused by APs that are operating on other channels that overlap with that channel.

– Network Quality – Verifies coverage, interference, security, and ability to connect to specified networks, along with the availability of critical network services such as DHCP and connectivity to specified network targets.

– Rogue Access Points – Reports APs other than your authorized devices. These devices may be compromising network security.

Access Point Discovery

Quickly view all the APs present in the environment and see critical parameters for each one, including signal level, signal/noise ratio, security type, and channel. Find common issues such as incorrect security type, poor signal coverage, or incorrect channel.

Sort or filter by any parameter, then drill into any AP to set its authorization level and see more details, including number of connected clients, supported rates, 802.11n/ac/ax capabilities and more. From the AP details page, drill into a list of connected clients, or the channel on which the AP operates to verify any channel utilization or co-channel interference problems.

From here you can also use a locator tool to find an AP, set Access Control status (ACL), or you can perform a packet capture.

Network Discovery

Quickly view all the networks present in the environment and see critical parameters for each one, including signal level, signal/noise ratio, security type, and number of access points. Find common issues such as mixed security types, poor signal coverage, or lack of secondary AP coverage.

Sort or filter by any parameter, then drill into greater detail on any network, including 802.11 types supported, number of connected clients, channels, and more. From the network details page, drill into a list of APs or clients on the network.

Network Connection Tests

Verify network availability and access to critical services by connecting to a network (SSID) or AP with a single touch on the Connect button. Key test steps include:

– Associate with AP
– Request and receive an IP address from a DHCP server
– Ping the default gateway and DNS servers for availability
– Perform a ping or TCP port test on up to ten network targets
– Conduct ongoing signal level, signal/noise ratio, and retry rate measurements

Once connected to a network, perform a roaming test to validate that roaming is enabled on the network, or run an iPerf performance test to verify throughput capabilities on the network.

Wired Ethernet Tests

The AirCheck G2’s built-in Ethernet test validates that APs have a working backhaul connection to the network.

– Diagnose and test Power over Ethernet (PoE), link to the switch, DHCP, Gateway, and Internet connections.
– Get VLAN, switch name, and port information via CDP/LLDP/EDP for your managed switches.
