Cordless phones, microwave ovens, wireless motion detectors and video cameras typically operate at the same frequency space as Wi-Fi devices. Interference is one of the primary contributors to degraded Wi-Fi performance and reliability, causing flaky connections, dropped VoIP calls, and grumpy users.
Both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands are suffering from interference issues - that's why Ekahau Spectrum Analyzer is dual-band.
Ekahau Spectrum Analyzer is an accurate and easy to use USB device. It's a great addition to any Wi-Fi administrator’s portfolio – without one, many Wi-Fi issues will remain unseen. For one, the full benefits of 802.11n and 802.11ac technologies may not be realized without a spectrum analyzer.
The Ekahau Spectrum Analyzer is certified for interoperability with other Ekahau products, and the Spectrum Analysis functionality can be started directly from Ekahau Site Survey.
Discover and locate non-Wi-Fi interference sources, such as:
Dual-band (analyze both 2.4 and 5GHz frequency bands)
Support for 802.11ac, 802.11n, 802.11a/b/g (Note: 802.11n/ac is recommended instead of 802.11abg)
Interferer classification: Identify what is causing the interference
Analyze interference and network utilization variation over time
Investigate the impact of interference
Save captured data for later analysis
