Discover, Locate and Eliminate Wi-Fi Interference

Cordless phones, microwave ovens, wireless motion detectors and video cameras typically operate in 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.

Ekahau Spectrum Analyzer is an easy to use USB device that integrates with Ekahau Site Survey Professional, so that you can perform spectrum data capture simultaneously with active and passive surveys. No pre-configuration needed; it’s just ready to go.

Ekahau Site Survey then combines both Wi-Fi and spectrum information into easy-to-read displays for powerful on-the-spot and post-survey analysis. Finding root causes for Wi-Fi problems has never been easier – or faster.
