Title: AirMagnet Spectrum XT WLAN Interference Detection & Identification vs. MetaGeek Wi-Spy DBx + Chanalyzer

Publication date:   15 July 2015
Document number:    215131

Abstract:

With the broad adoption of wireless networks in enterprises and the growth accelerated by the new 802.11ac standard wireless networks are no longer a “nice to have” addition to the enterprise space. When deploying a WLAN environment, IT staff need to confidently rule out any RF interference- generated impact on Wi-Fi network performance and maximize troubleshooting efficiency by using a spectrum analyzer. If not addressed, RF interference will cause the network to underperform, leading to frustrated end users.

AirMagnet commissioned Tolly to benchmark the interference identification and detection of their Spectrum XT and compare it to the MetaGeek Wi-Spy DBx + Chanalyzer. AirMagnet Spectrum XT offers automatic interference identification and greater accuracy of identifying interferers in a single attempt at all distances tested. See Figure 1. In addition, AirMagnet Spectrum XT provides a means to find a device and create a custom signature.
