WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. -- Xirrus, Inc., the only provider of high-performance, long-range Wi-Fi products, announced today an embedded Spectrum Analyzer in its Wi-Fi Arrays. Xirrus' patented Array – which packs four, eight, or 16 radios into a single, compact device along with an onboard Gigabit Switch, Wi-Fi controller, and threat sensor – now includes integrated spectrum analysis, as well.

The Spectrum Analyzer utilizes Xirrus’ embedded and dedicated Wi-Fi threat sensor radio to monitor the 2.4 and 5 GHz spectrum of Wi-Fi networks continually – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Unlike traditional spectrum analyzers, such as Cognio’s, that require a user to walk around with a dedicated laptop to monitor a given area, the Xirrus Spectrum Analyzer is embedded in each Array, providing distributed, omni-present spectrum management functionality.

“The introduction of the Spectrum Analyzer extends Xirrus’ already significant RF management and monitoring capabilities”, said Dirk Gates, CEO of Xirrus. “The presence of a Spectrum Analyzer on each Array enables IT managers to track down and locate sources of interference that could be causing performance degradation in their Wi-Fi networks.”
