What is WiTuners for?

WLAN deployment planning, performance auditing and tuning is notoriously difficult, complex, time consuming and expensive, largely due to the complex nature of wi-fi technologies. In the past few years, sub-optimally deployed and maintained WLANs seemed to have survived, without too many end user complaints. Unfortunately, however, such a grace period is gone, for good. Today, with more and more Access Points deployed, more and more traffic off-loaded from cellular networks, more and more bandwidth consuming video applications running and more and more WI-Fi enabled client devices, such as tablets and smart phones, a sub-optimal WLAN is no longer tolerable any more, becoming a bottle neck of productivity for many owners of WLANs.

WiTuners, fully backed by its Advanced Wi-Fi Tuning Technologies, provides a solution to address this ever increasing demand. Its capability of real-optimal planning and ongoing automated true-performance based tuning clearly separates itself from existing connectivity-based WLAN solutions.

Facts About WiTuners

Many factors contribute to a suboptimal WLAN planning. WiTuners™ carefully avoids the pitfalls with years of experience and WiTuners' advanced technologies. The results are the evidence of WiTuners' unique capabilities.

Some More Background

WLAN software on the market can be roughly classified into three categories: WLAN site survey tools, WLAN monitoring and planning tools, and WLAN management tools. WLAN monitoring and planning tools can be further grouped into three types: Predictive, Analytical, and Hybrid.

A site survey tool typically only reports the spectrum data, such as received signal strengths for each channel, and other APs' properties at particular location points, sometimes with the help of GPS capability. Use of these survey data is usually leave to Wi-Fi planners.

WiTuners™ DOP includes a WLAN site survey tool too. DOP, however, focuses more on the planning and optimization by taking the collected survey data as inputs to plan a new WLAN or audit and optimize an existing WLAN. For new deployments, WiTuners™ allows users to input desired settings to generate WLAN plans. Settings include: AP counts, optimal AP placements, optimal RF channel assignments, proper power assignments that correspond to the desired data rate, throughput, voice call capacity, coverage and coverage holes, minimal overlapping and interference, as well as other configurations. WiTuners™ is, in fact, a hybrid WLAN planning, performance auditing, and optimization software, with both predictive and analytical capabilities.

A WLAN management system typically monitors and controls the WLAN under its management by setting, applying configurations, and getting stats. It usually also implements a set of other functionality such as logging, reporting and trouble shooting, security, access control, and mobility management.

WiTuners™ is not a typical WLAN management system. It focuses more on a subset of essential WLAN management tasks, namely the WLAN planning, audit, and optimizing. It addresses one of the major difficulties a WLAN management often faces: the automation of the auditing and optimization process. This process is complemental to WLAN management systems. Therefore, WiTuners can works alone by connecting to a WLAN, or cooperates with WLAN management system through data exchanges, or can be integrated into a WLAN management system as a software module.
