WiTuners Menu Bar and Icons Function.
The Area is displayed as a dotted line surrounding the area within which the WLAN traffic will be optimized. Handles are provided at the corners and mid-lines to facilitate resizing the area.
The Heatmap displays a color coded gradient map of radiated energy in the deployment area. A scale is provided to give a relative RSSI or Signal in dBm, Rate or Throughput in Mbps or QoS Score. The heat map can be viewed by either select APs, all APs or client.
Check on it will show the coverage holes on the deployment plan in red.
The Zoom bar can be enabled by checking this box allowing the user to expand or contract the view of the floor plan.
Click on it and it will show the ruler on the deployment plan.
A Grid can be placed on top of the floor plan by checking this box.
When checked, this box displays the received energy in dBm (blue numbers) for all of the APs surrounding a transmitting AP. This transmitting AP turns solid pink when it is selected by left clicking.
When checked, this box plots concentric circles surrounding the selected AP. The pink circle is at the data sensitivity level (typically -68 dBm). The blue circle is at the CCA or sensitivity level (typically -84 dBm).
Check on it will show the floor map on the deployment plan.
Check on it will show the APs on other floors but may be “heard” by the APs or clients on the current floor.
Check on it will show the walls on the current floor.
An AP can be added to the deployment by clicking and dragging this icon onto the deployment area. Thereafter, its characteristics can be modified by right clicking the AP and changing the appropriate values.
A Wall can be added to the deployment by clicking and dragging this icon onto the deployment area. You can change its orientation and shape by use of the handles on its ends and midpoint. The open circle handles are used to split the straight segments of the wall into multiple lines.
Drag and drop the Site Survey Robot (SSR) robot icon to any location of the floor allows one to perform virtual site survey. In addition to moving the SSR around by hovering the mouse over it, a tool-tip will display showing the detailed stats of that particular location from a client’s perspective.
