Capabilities

Never Miss Any Wi-Fi Traffic

AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer gives you the ability to capture any Wi-Fi traffic for 802.11 networks, including 3×3 802.11ac traffic. As a result, you can solve any Wi-Fi network troubleshooting problems right the first time without costly rework or escalations.

Built-In Wireless Expertise

The AirWISE® engine automatically detects the root cause of dozens of wireless network troubleshooting issues across the spectrum. AirWISE® eliminates the need for users to manually interpret complex packet decodes and wireless data by taking the proactive role of identifying and explaining more than hundreds of threats and performance issues before they impact the Wi-Fi network. The user-friendly AirWISE® interface explains alarms in straightforward details, provides access to additional diagnostic data, and offers advice on corrective actions.

Portable Wi-Fi Troubleshooting Solution With No AP Downtime

Not all wireless network troubleshooting solutions or software tools are created equal. Freeware apps or the ones that cost a few dollars, provide little more than a list of Wi-Fi networks and their properties, and do nothing to solve real-world problems. They don’t match the capabilities of a true wireless network analyzer like AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer Pro that can monitor and solve any Wi-Fi troubleshooting problem.

Many AP solutions claim built-inside troubleshooting with partial scanning or full-time scanning options. Both have severe limitations. Part-time scanning leads to slower detection of problems in the network and could even miss the issue altogether. With full-time scanning, you are limited by diverting the AP from its core purpose which is providing data services. Moreover, APs are fixed on the ceiling and cannot travel to the source of the problem. AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer overcomes these limitations with full-featured, dedicated, on-site Wi-Fi troubleshooting with zero AP downtime.

Complete Wi-Fi Interference Detection & Wi-Fi Analysis

Interference is one of the leading causes of poor connectivity and performance problems in the network. This interference can be from other Wi-Fi devices, poor channel planning (adjacent or co-channel interference), or from non-Wi-Fi interference sources. Wi-Fi interference occurs as a result of co-channel/adjacent channel interference from the corporate or neighbor’s WLAN, hidden nodes in the environment, or non-Wi-Fi devices operating in the 802.11 band. AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer’s interference status indicator lists the overall interference status for each Wi-Fi channel, which is based on the Wi-Fi interference score for the devices contributing to the interference. It also provides a list of hidden nodes and non-Wi-Fi devices (non-Wi-Fi detection requires AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO and AirMagnet Spectrum XT to be installed on the same machine) operating in the channel. This enables users to easily plan future Wi-Fi deployments or modify their existing deployment to minimize interference and, in turn, improve network performance.

WLAN Client Roaming Analysis

Ensuring a smooth roam between AP’s, without any dropped calls or sessions and in a way that is not noticeable to the user is key for any deployment. AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO leverages support for multiple WLAN adapters plugged into the computer to troubleshoot client roaming issues – one of IT staff’s most commonly reported problems for WLAN networks.

AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer provides advanced details on all roaming transactions for any WLAN client. Users are powered with AirWISE® expertise to get detailed reasons for the roaming event taking place, device and channel parameters that influence the roam, and visibility into whether the roam was good or not.

For VoWLAN phones, users can monitor voice delays and other statistics as the phone roams from one AP to another in the middle of a conversation. The application provides VoFi-specific data (such as WiMOS, Signal Strength, etc.) leading up to the attempt, and packet transmission rates for the conversation.
