Designed for network professionals who need to validate that the WLAN is working or need to resolve problems related to connectivity and performance.
AirCheck G2 users can quickly and easily gather location-based Wi-Fi measurements and create visual heat maps of key performance metrics in the Link-Live Cloud Service or AirMagnet Survey PRO. Simple to use, the AirMapper Site Survey app is ideal for quick site surveys of new deployments, change validation, and performance verification.
AirCheck G2 offers a one-button AutoTest function that quickly provides a pass/fail indication of Wi-Fi network quality and identifies common problems
Faster and easier Wi-Fi site surveys with AirMapper™ Site Survey including active surveys to validate client experience and roaming.
Test the most common Wi-Fi standards (including 802.11ax) with a rugged, handheld, purpose-built wi-fi tester.
See all networks and devices in your location immediately upon power up.
View test results, including network availability, connectivity, utilization, noise levels, throughput, security settings, possible rogues, and interferers.
Automate reporting and enable collaboration with result upload and management via Link-Live Cloud Service.
The AirCheck™ G2 Wi-Fi Tester’s intuitive user interface provides actionable intelligence, simplifying wireless troubleshooting and validation. AirCheck G2 is the most cost-effective hardware-enabled site survey solution, and provides network professionals of any skill level with complete and accurate information to validate Wi-Fi deployments and changes, resolve connectivity and performance problems quickly, speed up closure of trouble tickets, and ensure your Wi-Fi network meets end users’ needs.
The network detailed screen will give an overview of specific networks, including:
– Number of AP’s on that network
– Signal Strength
– 802.11 types
Get more details about network availability and configuration, or see how many devices are connected to the network.
To perform an iPerf test, enter the desired IP address for the iPerf server to be tested. Available: Test Accessory with iPerf capabilities are also available for selection.
Easily measure performance against any part of the network (switches, servers, gateways, etc.).
A roaming test is used to validate roaming performance between APs. The roaming test shows the quality of the connection as you roam from one AP to another. It also highlights if the roam was successful and how long it took to roam.
Easily validate roaming between access points and identify the root cause of common problems like disconnects and slow roams. Simulate the roaming behavior of common client devices by adjusting roaming thresholds.
With AirMapper, AirCheck G2 users can quickly and easily gather location-based Wi-Fi measurements and create visual heat maps of key performance metrics in the Link-Live Cloud Service or AirMagnet Survey PRO.
Import a floor plan image (.png or .jpg) and calibrate the floor plan dimensions (in meters or feet), or automatically push pre-configured and calibrated floorplans from Link-Live to testers in the field. Then touch START and tap at various points on your floor plan to collect data; comments can be added to the survey with a long tap on the floorplan. When done, tap STOP, then touch the save icon to send your results to Link-Live for sharing and analysis.
Faster and easier than using site survey software on a laptop or tablet with an attached dongle or tethered device, AirMapper is ideal for quick site surveys of new deployments, change validation, and performance verification. The ease and portability of this solution enables technicians to quickly troubleshoot or validate the Wi-Fi network by measuring the real-world experience.
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.
Easily identify problems with co-channel interference, adjacent channel interference, or overloaded channels.
The capture option will allow to perform a packet capture on the selected channel. It will also allow you to select frame type and file size.
Need more details about the type of traffic on the selected channel? Easily set up a packet capture and perform more in-depth analysis with your prefered application, or send the capture to an expert.
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:
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.
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:
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.
The AirCheck G2’s built-in Ethernet test validates that APs have a working backhaul connection to the network.
With the AirMapper app, AirCheck G2 users can quickly and easily gather location-based Wi-Fi measurements and create visual heat maps of key performance metrics in the Link-Live Cloud Service or AirMagnet Survey PRO. Simple to use, the AirMapper app is ideal for quick site surveys of new deployments, change validation, and performance verification.
Collaborate with staff across your organization with centralized visibility of distributed tests, speeding resolution of remote site issues.
