Wireless networks operate in unlicensed frequencies. This means that many devices, including Bluetooth devices, cordless phones, and microwaves, can potentially interefere with the network signal.
Radio Frequency spectrum analyzers are devices that can identify physical layer interference. This allows network engineers to analyze, debug, and pinpoint locations of interference. No wireless site survey is complete without spectrum analysis. Most wireless lan management tools do not measure Radio frequency (RF) intereference problems, increasing the need for a professional spectrum analysis service.
Wireless network consultants can diagnose that a network is slow, but without a spectrum analyzer, problems cannot be pinpointed and effective solutions cannot be formulated. A spectrum analysis service can measure the effects of rf intereference on specific netowkr channels, identify the locations of intereference, and determine how to effectively deal with these sources of interference.
We also offer a pre-installation diagnostic. Our pre-installation diagnostics check consists of analyzing an area before a solution such as video monitoring is put in place. This allows the network engineer to use frequency bands that are not already in use, minimizing interference with other devices.
