Wi-Fi Diagnostics and Service
Wi-Fi network is slow? Is the broadcast interrupted? Devices can't network? Not enough coverage at all points in the room? Or is there a security issue?
WHY DO SUCH PROBLEMS OCCUR?
The biggest problem is definitely air, your Wi-Fi shares the same frequencies with its neighbors, and by standard, all Wi-Fi devices share air with the CSMA / CA algorithm based on courtesy. Therefore, when a Wi-Fi transmitter hears a signal greater than -85dB, it must wait to send its packet. Neighbors must also be taken into account.
Wi-Fi networks are often designed by either IT people or building architects, and professionals in both fields do not usually have the expertise to design and install radio equipment. The specifics of specific devices are also not taken into account.
The Wi-Fi standard is now 20 years old, and knowledge of all security and other protocols requires commitment.
HOW WE SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS
We perform measurements and various tests at the site, which result in changes in various configurations, a new installation project, etc. necessary advice. We use several spectrum analyzers and professional programs in our work to get the necessary information about what is happening in the air and on the network. The latest solution is measurement agent software that measures speeds and signal strengths and records everything even weekly.
Why don't the instruments built on the wi-fi card help in this case? The answer is simple, they are inaccurate and slow, they also measure very broadband signals, and many sources of interference therefore remain completely unnoticed.
