Greenlee’s AirScout troubleshoots Wi-Fi services

Greenlee Communication’s AirScout is, the company says, the only distributed test system on the market for the installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of Wi-Fi services. Utilizing multiple sensors, the system creates a heat map of the Wi-Fi user experience so that the technician can properly set up Wi-Fi services for the customer.
Rather than just presenting signal levels and channel graphs, the system intelligently selects the best channel, the optimal access point and range extender locations, and provides application level throughput measurements that ensure the Wi-Fi experience meets the needs of the customer. The results are then wrapped up in a birth certificate and uploaded to the cloud for enhanced support services.
The AirScout helps the technician set up and troubleshoot Wi-Fi properly and also educates the subscriber about where their dead zones or performance edges are within their network. » Read More
