Fluke Networks’s AirMapper App, is the first application for Android devices that provides a visual heat map of Wi-Fi throughput performance on smartphone and tablets.
While existing solutions can map speed and signal strength, or perform throughput spot checks, the App is the first to provide a visual throughput map, which is key to optimising Wi-Fi networks by taking the actual user experience of mobile devices into account.
Wayne Allen, program manager, Fluke Networks, says full bars on a signal strength display do not mean a mobile device is working properly on the network.
A study by the firm shows many organizations are not yet ready to address performance challenges with mobile devices in the workplace – particularly with devices brought to work by staff.
It says nearly 82% of organizations let employees use personal mobile devices on the wireless LAN (WLAN). However, 51% are concerned with how people’s devices will affect bandwidth consumption.
Allen says his firm’s AirMapper can help companies bridge this performance gap and design wireless networks that meet business and user expectations.
