Wi-Fi is everywhere. It’s in the mission-critical technologies that power businesses of every shape and size. It’s in the life-sustaining medical devices we rely on for health and wellness. It keeps us connected when we need to communicate and it gives us an escape when we need to isolate. If your business relies on Wi-Fi, you need the measurement accuracy of the Ekahau Sidekick 2 to help you troubleshoot and optimise your wireless network. If you’re still stuck on makeshift Wi-Fi adapters and free utility tools, you’re likely wasting time, money, and risking your reputation.
What causes bad Wi-Fi?
Your wireless network changes ALL THE TIME. Your network can be degraded by new neighbouring networks introducing interference, physical changes to your space, adding new employees, adopting more bandwidth-hungry applications like video conferencing, or even just rotating inventory levels. Bad Wi-Fi can be a result of insufficient coverage, but it can also be caused by a range of improper settings and external interferers that the naked eye won’t be able to detect.
- Coverage and Capacity – If your network doesn’t meet the minimum requirements for coverage and capacity, the devices on your network will not be able to perform the necessary applications.
- Channel Overlap – Channel overlap can wreak havoc on your network. Interferences from neighbouring APs and networks will cause bad Wi-Fi.
- Interference – Both Wi-Fi and non Wi-Fi signals can cause interferences on your network. Wireless cameras, microphones, or even microwaves can cause a disruption on your network.
