AirMagnet Inc., which develops WLAN security and performance technology, today announced a new laptop-based RF spectrum analysis solution for Wi-Fi networks.
The AirMagnet Spectrum Analyzer based on Cognio’s Intelligent Spectrum Management System (ISMS) identifies the specific sources of interference that can undermine the performance of wireless networks.
AirMagnet and Cognio are exhibiting at this weeks WiFi/VoWiFi Planet show in Baltimore.
The AirMagnet Spectrum Analyzer complements AirMagnet Laptop, the companys Wi-Fi performance and security troubleshooting tool, with its ability to identify and find the sources of interference in all of the Wi-Fi bands.
“Spectrum analysis can provide our customers valuable information that helps them diagnose network problems, but only if the information is specific and presented in a way that is easy to understand,” says Dean Au, president and CEO of AirMagnet. “Cognio’s technology adds intelligent analysis that’s not possible with proprietary hardware solutions. Used in conjunction with our WLAN Laptop Analyzer, AirMagnet Spectrum Analyzer allows users to ensure maximum network security and uptime for their wireless networks.”
The AirMagnet Spectrum Analyzer also allows network managers to detect and identify specific interfering devices including Bluetooth, cordless phones, microwave ovens and video cameras in real time; pinpoint the location of problematic wireless devices; measure RF “air quality,” including metrics for radio congestion; and more.
The AirMagnet Spectrum Analyzer will be available at the end of June.
