You can build several types of Wi-Fi heatmaps directly in NetSpot for Android : Signal level, Signal-to-interference ratio, and Signal-to-noise ratio. They allow you to see how the WiFi signal is distributed throughout the area and what possible improvements can be applied to perfect it.

  • Signal level

Demonstrates your WiFi signal strength. This value is especially important when combined with other values.

  • Signal-to-interference ratio

Demonstrates the quotient between the average received carrier power and the average received co-channel interference power.

  • Signal-to-noise ratio

Demonstrates the correspondence of the WiFi signal level to the level of the background noise (unwanted signal).
