AirMagnet Spectrum XT is the professional spectrum analyzer solution that combines in-depth RF analysis with real-time WLAN information for quicker and more accurate troubleshooting of performance problems. This combined view of "impact analysis of RF interference" on the network's overall performance helps pin-point the root-cause of those problems.
AirMagnet Spectrum XT is the ideal solution for network engineers and installers/integrators for troubleshooting and deployment of WLAN networks, and is available in the universal and convenient USB form factor, allowing it to be used on any notebook, netbook or tablet PC.
Automatic identification and location of interference sources
AirMagnet Spectrum XT offers real-time detection and identification of a number of non-WLAN sources that interfere and lower the performance of WLAN networks. The extensive device or source list includes Bluetooth devices, digital and analog cordless phones, conventional and inverter microwave ovens, wireless game controllers, digital video converter, baby monitors, RF Jammers, radars, motion detectors, zigbee devices and many more. With AirMagnet Spectrum XT's built-in "device locator tool", users can physically locate any Wi-Fi or non-Wi-Fi interference sources operating in the RF environment. The device locator tool operates as a Geiger counter and beeps louder as users get closer to the location of the device.
AirMagnet Spectrum XT's integrated reporter makes it easy to turn RF spectrum analysis sessions into professional reports. AirMagnet Spectrum XT can generate reports on the RF spectrum graphs, Wi-Fi charts and the list of RF interference sources for the current environment. Reports can be exported in the Word, RTF, PDF, HTML formats.
Visualize impact of RF interference on WLAN performance
To optimize and ensure top WLAN performance, AirMagnet Spectrum XT introduces a revolutionary approach to wireless network troubleshooting that combines the power of RF spectrum analysis with WLAN traffic and device analysis. Users can plug in any supported wireless adapter and instantly see a combined or co-related single screen view showing the impact of RF interference or interference sources on the overall true performance of the WLAN.
"Zero-day" response to any RF interferer
Users who own RF spectrum analyzers usually have to depend on the vendor to create default signatures or classifications for the detection and identification of RF interference sources. Timely response to these sources is critical to environments or enterprise networks to ensure the optimum performance for their WLAN users. Spectrum analyzer vendors themselves, struggle to keep up with the creation and inclusion of every unique RF interference sources within their native classification database that can cause havoc to the WLAN network.
Integration with AirMagnet WiFi Anlayzer and AirMagnet Survey
AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO AirMagnet Spectrum XT users running AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO on the same PC can view non-WLAN interference for every channel in the RF spectrum. Simple color indicators point to the level of impact of these RF interference sources on the performance of the WLAN network. This information helps users plan the channel settings for the current and planned WLAN infrastructure. AirMagnet Survey PRO users running AirMagnet Spectrum XT on the same machine can perform RF spectrum surveys or sweeps at the same time, as a passive or active site survey, reducing the walk-around time. Users also get the list of interference sources detected by AirMagnet Spectrum XT within AirMagnet Survey.
Record and playbackProduct Highlights
AirMagnet Spectrum XT users can save their RF spectrum scans, retain them as hard evidence and play them back at a later time for post-capture investigation and analysis. This is very helpful as critical forensic information while investigating any Layer 1 Denial of Service attacks against the WLAN network. The saved trace files can also be shared between users for collaborative analysis and troubleshooting. AirMagnet Spectrum XT's Instant Replay feature allows users to review the most recent spectrum information and play it back, as if it were being viewed live for the first time.
- RF interferer classification database to obtain automated answers to performance problems
- Prioritize issues/interferers with Wi-Fi impact analysis capability
- Custom signatures allow an instant response to interference problems and provide independence on classification updates
