The key factors for wireless LAN optimization to improve WiFi network performance


Wireless LAN Optimization Factors

Many optimization factors affect the performance of a Wireless LAN (WLAN). When optimizing a WLAN, one has to devise a comprehensive performance metric that represents the real world WLAN. To accurately representing a real world WLAN, the performance metric that is to be optimized has to include all the important factors. Ignoring any of these factors in the performance metric will lead to an optimization that is disconnected to the real world WLAN, which is why many claimed WLAN optimization does not really yield to an optimal WLAN performance.

WiTuners Wireless LAN Optimization has the most comprehensive list of factors included in its optimization metric on the market. This is one of the key reasons that  Wireless LAN Optimizationr leads to actual optimal WLAN performance. The list includes:

1. RF environment

• In-door office, warehouse for example

2. Building structure

• Walls by heights and attenuation (or other obstructing objects mimicked by walls)

• Excluded areas

• Floor attenuations

3. RF factors

• Radio channel

• Transmission power

• RSSI

• Co-channel and adjacent channel neighboring interference

• Antenna pattern

• Antenna gains

• Shadowing AP interference from other floors

4. PHY

• Access Point (AP)  PHY types

• Minimal PHY rate

• System loss

• CCA thresholds

• Noise levels

• SNR

• 802.11n specific parameters

• 802.11ac specific parameters

• Channel bonding.

5. MAC

• QoS and EDCF parameters

• Hidden nodes effects

• Load balancing

• Access Point (AP) locations

6. Others:

• Type of clients (data, voice, video)

• Optimization goals

• Load requirements

• Dual band radios

• Coverage holes

Wireless LAN Optimization Tuned Configurations for optimal WLAN performance.

Other than the list of factors that is to be included into the performance metric for optimization, the list of tuned configurations includes the configuration parameters to be tuned to reach a maximum performance metric. Usually, RRM (radio resource management) based WLAN optimization only considers the RF configurations such as channel and transmission power. But RRM is insufficient, as is evident that a 5-bar signal often does not guarantee a good connection. Configurations beyond RF layer, such as MAC and PHY layers, also have significant impact on WLAN performance.

WiTuners optimizer has the most comprehensive list of configurations considered in its optimization, which differentiate WiTuners Optimizer from any other WLAN optimization solutions on the market.

The list of WiTuners Wireless LAN Optimization Tuned Configurations include:

1. Channel selection

2. Power level adjustment

3. minimum PHY rate

4. MAC parameters (EDCF parameters)

5. Number of Access Points (APs)

6. Locations of Access Points (APs)

How A Simple And Free WiFi Planning Software Can Improve Your Network


In many respects, planning a WiFi network is similar to planning wired networks. You need to consider all the fundamentals: where you are going to set up, the amount of users you have to accommodate, and so on. However, wireless networks have its own set of issues dissimilar to that of a wired network. Among these is the common idea that the WiFi network is not secure.

A wireless network with free WiFi planning software can help you improve the efficiency of your business. Studies have shown that the users will experience longer connections and more efficient activity through such tools. This is because they are more flexible than wired tools, and users can benefit from the enhanced ease of use. They are also cheaper and easier to set up, and you can accommodate laptops, tablets, and the latest mobile devices. Continue reading

The Benefits of Site Survey WiFi


The Different Kinds Of Site Survey WiFi And The Things They Can Do

The first thing you need to do when setting up a wireless local access network is to make sure that you are using a site survey WiFi tool, which assesses the radio frequency behaviour in a particular environment. A lot of problems may emerge in a wireless network because of poor coverage and planning. It has been found that a lot of site surveys are not executed correctly or the site survey is completely omitted. What you need for optimal WiFi performance is proper preparation, planning, and identification of major items to test through the survey report analysis. Continue reading

A Brief Introduction To Wireless Network Monitoring Software


The wireless network monitoring software is composed of spatially allocated independent sensors for monitoring environmental or physical stipulations, such as pressure, sound, temperature, and more, in order to cooperatively transmit their data to a main location through the network. The more contemporary networks are bidirectional, also facilitating management of sensor activity. The innovation of the wireless network monitoring technology was inspired by military functions like battlefield surveillance. These days, such networks are utilized in several consumer and industrial applications like machine health monitoring and industrial process control and monitoring. Continue reading

A Brief Introduction To Site Survey Android


There are a lot of cheap site survey Android tools that can help you discover a little more about the nearby wireless network, as well as several costly devices that you may use to perform a more expert site survey. One example of this kind of tool is the Ekahau’s Mobile Survey for Android, which costs $299.

Wireless network administrators often require constant monitoring of RF activity for the purposes of operational troubleshooting, performance analysis, and security auditing. In order to achieve this, most administrators carry a couple of site survey Android tools, usually free and basic software that run on WiFi-enabled laptops and mobile gadgets, ranging from iPhone to WinCE.

Improve Your WiFi At Your Business Using Wireless Network Service Tools


We are now living in a modern mobile world. This means regularly connecting to the internet through wireless network service tools using various devices. Most likely, you use Wi-Fi not only when you are at hotels, airports, or coffee shops, but also to connect at your home network, as well. You might even wish to be connected to a wireless network while at the office.

Problem is, Windows does not perform a particularly excellent task of providing wireless network service tools. It may allow you to connect and search for nearby networks, but that is just about the most of it. What would you do if you wish to acquire detailed data about each Wi-Fi network in range, or turn your device into a handy Wi-Fi hotspot, or keep your network safe from public hotspots, or troubleshoot your network? Windows would be of no help. Continue reading

FIND THE RIGHT WIRELESS NETWORK SURVEY TOOLS


If some of you are interested in setting up a business establishment, Internet connection is a must. Why? Cause firstly, people make things easier through the help of internet to get the information that they need or want. Secondly, it’s another way of transferring certain information from one person or company to the other. It serves as a mode of transportation to lessen the workload of having to manually send letters to the recipients. And lastly, it’s another mode of communication within the given premises like for example: employees having to contact the higher management through appointment tickets, filing work offs and such using a specific web system through their computers using their login credentials and such. And it is also important for them to have the optimal quality of internet service for everything to just run smoothly.  Continue reading
