Wi-Fi spectrum analysis goes mobile

Designers can now do their Wi-Fi spectrum analysis on the road, thanks to AirMagnet's laptop-based RF spectrum analysis solution. The Spectrum Analyzer is based on Cognio's patented Intelligent Spectrum Management System (ISMS). According to the company, it's the first solution that can identify the specific sources of interference that can undermine a wireless network's performance.

The Spectrum Analyzer can proactively identify and find the sources of interference in all Wi-Fi bands. It can perform real-time RF spectrum analysis for troubleshooting WLANs; detect and identify specific interfering devices in real time, including Bluetooth, cordless phones, microwave ovens, and video cameras; pinpoint the location of problematic wireless devices; measure RF “air quality,” including metrics for radio congestion; create graphical display of Wi-Fi spectrum in nine simultaneous charts and graphs; and analyze all Wi-Fi and public safety bands of spectrum in use today, including 802.11a/b/g.
