Cognio Does WiFi, RFID

Cognio announced a new version of Spectrum Expert that makes quick work of troubleshooting and eliminating physical layer problems

GERMANTOWN, Md. -- Cognio, the market leader in spectrum analysis tools for WiFi and RFID networks, announced today a new version of Spectrum Expert that makes quick work of troubleshooting and eliminating physical layer problems. With Spectrum Expert 3.0, Cognio adds powerful diagnostics that make it easy to see whether a WiFi problem is in the “Air” or in the wired network. With “one look” IT Managers are alerted to interference problems and shown the precise cause of the interference.

“Our systems engineers claim that a very large portion of WiFi problems, as much as 50 percent, are caused by interference and are unrelated to the actual network,” said Alan Cohen, Director of Mobility Marketing for Cisco Systems, San Jose CA. “With Spectrum Expert’s new features, IT managers can diagnose these problems in minutes.”

Spectrum Expert 3.0 quickly tells the user what physical layer issues are causing WiFi network problems, helps analyze and optimize WiFI throughput, and adds alerting when performance or security violations are detected.

“Network managers need more than the raw interference data that WiFi devices give you,” said William Flanagan, vice president of marketing at Cognio. “The real power of Spectrum Expert is that it pinpoints for IT managers what the source of interference is and where it is actually located, allowing IT managers to take control of their spectrum. Cognio spectrum analytics eliminates the confusion as to whether a building’s WiFi air quality is bad or whether there is an issue in the network.”
