How does WiTuners help to optimize your wireless LAN?
An optimal WLAN network delivers the performance required by the SLAs of the applications that use the network and under given conditions. WiTuners has been designed to take all factors that impact actual network performance into account. This is applied to every connection between any two WLAN devices so that the true performance of the WLAN network as a whole can be determined with confidence. Because the traffic sources are assumed to be fully buffered, the network performance so determined in fact provides a lower bound. At lower traffic loads, individual users will see a higher level of service with the best WiFi coverage, max capacity.
How does WiTuners help us to design an optimal network?
Assessing network performance by trial and error is a time consuming effort fraught with risks and inconvenience to users. Therefore WiTuners offers two assisted planning modes: automated planning of new deployments and deployment plan updating. The latter proceeds from the installed network. Assisted planning offers a number of optional criteria for optimizing network performance: highest overall throughput, highest minimum access point throughput, best WiFi coverage and least number of access points. Together with comprehensive reporting per access point and per network, the network manager gets detailed insight into the networks estimated performance so that the feasibility of SLAs can be checked before the network is put into service.
How does WiTuners help to keep my network optimal once it is operational?
Network performance can be degraded by equipment failures and by interference. Access points may fail occasionally, neighbors may install or change a WLAN network and interference from other sources may impact all or part of a WLAN network. Manual checking network performance is time consuming and error prone. Therefore WiTuners provides a real-time performance audit and optimization capability. Auditing keeps track of actual performance of a network or subset thereof; optimization adjusts the network parameters so that the planned performance is maintained or improved to meet service demands
