Visual analysis is an extremely effective approach to a wireless signal survey. NetSpot features a rich set of visualizations for an easy comparison of WiFi signals according to their connection parameters.
Passive scanning
Signal level
Shows the strength of your WiFi signal. Extremely helpful combined with other values showing how signal level corresponds to interference level for example.
Signal to Interference ratio
In case of signal-to-interference ratio assessment, the interference that's taken into consideration only relates to co-channels by other radio transmitters.
Quantity of access points
You can see exactly how many access points are currently detected on your wireless network.
Frequency band coverage
You can quickly and efficiently analyze various frequencies.
PHY mode coverage
Visually displays coverage by WiFi protocols/modes and identifies where 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax modes are used.
Active scanning
Download speed
The download speed values are those reflecting the rate of data transmit from the Internet to a user's computer.
Upload speed
The upload speed values are those reflecting the rate of data transmit from a user's computer to the Internet.
Wireless transmit rate
Indicates the rate at which data is transmitted from an AP to a wireless device.
Low signal level
Visualizes the signal levels so that you can clearly see where they are low or non-existent and fix the issues.
Overlapping channels
When channels overlap the signal level may deteriorate as might the download and upload speeds. You can clearly see the issue and decide on a fix.
NetSpot for Mac and Windows
