The Wi-Fi Spectrum analyzer included in the PROMAX TV field strength meters is a flexible solution for those Telecom professionals who include the deployment and maintenance of WLAN networks in their portfolio of telecommunications services.
The WiFi band spectrum analysis tools let you find out the channels with the highest occupancy ratio, identify the non-WiFi interferences and optimize the network settings to get the most out of the available bandwidth.
Revealing interferences in the WiFi Band in real-time
There exists a large number of technologies using the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz bands because they are free-to-use, unlicensed bands. Therefore we can find not only WiFi networks using these bands but also Bluetooth devices, cordless telephony, surveillance cameras, domotics...
All those signal sources may interfere with the WiFi signals, therefore having a real-time WiFi spectrum analyzer is key to unveil the spectrum status in the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz bands.
Free WiFi analyzers and their limitations
The WiFi radio chips embedded in the devices can identify the presence of a WiFi hotspot and its signal level, but they cannot provide information on the amount of spectral activity.
This is a limitation for any WiFi analyzer app installed in the smartphone and therefore it won't be able to “capture” the radiofrequency activity that may be having a negative impact on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WiFi signals.
Integrated Wifi and TV spectrum analyzer: A cost-effective solution
PROMAX RANGER Neo TV analyzers include by default the WiFi spectrum analyzer feature. This allows the telecommunications companies and installers to extend their service portfolio by offering the WLAN networks troubleshooting with no need to invest in additional equipment.
Unveiling non-WiFi interference sources
Using the real-time WiFi spectrum analyzer it is possible to display at a glance the impact that the external interference sources (as well as the coexistence of other wireless networks) may produce on the WLAN connection quality.
The perfect WiFi analyzer for deployment and maintenance of WLAN networks
Since the band where the WiFi networks operate is a free-to-use band, new devices are constantly showing up to make use of this spectrum portion and they may have a negative impact on the wireless networks that were operating flawlessly until then.
Therefore, a WiFi spectrum analyzer is needed not only for the deployment of the WLAN networks but also for their maintenance.
Low-level information from the access point
The WiFi analyzer of PROMAX meters not only shows a visual display of the spectrum along with key measurements (such as power level, number of access points or current payload) but also lists low-level information that is interesting for engineering and development tasks.
