Globally, total public Wi-Fi hotspots will grow sevenfold from 2015 to 2020, from 64.2 million in 2015 to 432.5 million by 2020. The growth in the number of Wi-Fi connections is tremendous but users are still not one hundred percent sure about its efficacy. In today’s ultra-modern digital era, if you want to test a man’s patience, give him a slow Wi-Fi connection. This statement now stands more powerful than ever, since more and more entertainment service providers are moving towards streaming. There’s nothing more frustrating for a Wi-Fi user than trying to stream the favorite series on Netflix while encountering many interruptions. The fact of the matter is that it doesn’t matter which Wi-Fi connection plan is being used for internet; the actual speed is never the same as that specified in the plan. There are a lot of factors that impact the network speed. The signal coming from the Wi-Fi router is influenced by factors such as interference due to other signals, obstructions, router’s performance, and several others, affecting the strength and range. Wireless networks use specific channels within the wireless spectrum. An overcrowded wireless channel results in decreased bandwidth and connectivity issues for your network.
Either Wi-Fi or coffee, what would you choose?
75% of people say a week without Wi-Fi would leave them grumpier than a week without coffee. Keeping these statistics in mind and an outlook to end the worries of several Wi-Fi users, NetVelocity provides an inbuilt tool called the Wi-Fi Analyser. It displays a graphical representation of all the networks available in the area. The Access Point (AP) list view is useful for quickly glancing at the details of personal network and neighboring wireless networks. Since wireless congestion might result in a slow internet surfing experience, Wi-Fi Analyser helps to identify the wireless channel congestion status and provide recommendations on the least congested wireless channel.
Holistic Wi-Fi analysis now at your fingertips!
A number of times internet users have the luxury to access Wi-Fi from multiple sources. Be it offices, residential complexes, malls, government buildings, airport or any other location, Wi-Fi is freely available for people to use. NetVelocity’s Wi-Fi Analyser assists an internet user by providing detailed analysis related to the available Wi-Fi channels, to get connected to the best one. It also provides a visual representation of the Wi-Fi channels, along with network and cell information so as to check the strength and stability of the network connections. Following are the details provided –
- Access Points – Provides details such as strength, frequency, bandwidth, IP address, channel name, and modulation scheme for the detected Wi-Fi networks
- Channel Graph – Using the graphical representation for the real-time signal strength of multiple available Wi-Fi channels, users can easily find out the best from the rest
- Time Graph – Plots the signal strength of detected Wi-Fi networks along the time axis so that the user can analyze how the strength is varying with time and which network is stable
