Does WiTuners optimization automatically correct problems in Wireless network?
This is possible to the extent that the actual network has adequate operational capacity to accommodate a new RF plan. Through the use of the SNMP interface to the WLAN Controller, the adjusted RF Plan can be fed into the Controller, automatic adjust WLAN Controller configurations, and improve your WLAN performance in real-time and without human intervention. This saves time and assures a quick response to changing conditions.
Why are client properties important in analyzing WLAN performance?
Access points provide the fixed elements of a WLAN network and their placement and settings determine the downlink capacity of the WLAN. Proper settings of the access point properties minimize self-interference and optimize downlink capacity. However, clients are more numerous than access points and therefore their properties are at least as important as those of the access points. The emergence of tablets and smartphones further increases this importance because they greatly increase the diversity of client RF behavior. This RF diversity leads to frequent hidden node -like effects that cause major loss of performance or even network blockage. Therefore, WiTuners allows the network manager to define a variety of client types and properties which it then uses for accurate assessment of WLAN performance
