ManageEngine Launches WiFi Monitor Plus

ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today launched WiFi Monitor Plus. Available immediately, the free diagnostic app lets IT admins in SMBs and large enterprises monitor, analyze and survey WiFi signals in any area, directly from their Android mobile devices. WiFi Monitor Plus is available for download at http://ow.ly/zsHg9.

WiFi Monitor Plus offers both Analyzer and Surveyor modes, making it the first WiFi monitor to offer both modes in one app.

  • Analyzer mode lets users view available networks, graphs of the scanned networks’ signal strength, and channels with interference. The information helps users take appropriate actions to optimize WiFi connectivity.
  • Surveyor mode allows users to survey a site for the best signal strength. The heat map feature indicates the strength of the scanned WiFi networks. Users can upload their floor plans and survey different locations on the site for signal strength.

The application’s simple, user-friendly GUI helps users quickly access relevant data including best signals, overlaps in a channel, and site locations with the best signal strength. The app also has a Channel Graph widget that users can add to their devices’ home screens to instantly access the information without having to invoke the app. With this free app, IT admins gain valuable insights such as the need to switch off specific channels due to interference or deploy access points to help improve WiFi connectivity.

WiFi Monitor Plus has smart filters to show signals with the best strength by default and also by frequency. It intelligently filters out the weak signals, making the interface clutter free. Users, however, have the option to view all the signals on a single graph.

“IT admins responsible for ensuring good network connectivity will immensely benefit from this app,” said Vidya Vasu, head of the ManageEngine community and Free Tools. “The channel interference graph that shows both co-channel and inter-channel interference is a unique functionality that adds value by equipping the IT admins with actionable information. They can quickly decide on a course of action such as turning off a channel to increase the WiFi signal strength.”

Users who have tried the beta version of WiFi Monitor Plus have been particularly impressed with the app’s level of functionality and detail.

“Good app! I used [WiFi Monitor Plus] to quickly map out our WiFi setup and enjoyed using the function to see which APs were interfering with others,” said Charlie Smith, technical director at Charles Dhekelia Ltd. “I have previously used WiFi Analyzer for jobs such as this, but the ManageEngine solution does provide a lot more functionality and granular detail, which is definitely useful to have.”

Chris David, solutions implementation specialist at Enterprise Bank & Trust, said, “One of my favorite features is that I can set the analyzer to show all networks or just the best networks. This is actually really handy if you are in a noisy area. Kind of hard to make heads or tails of the data when there are several networks that are just barely in range clogging up the graphs. I also like all the details you can get in the WiFi scan. We’re IT — we love details!”

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time. Now that design CAD teams are geographically distributed, centralizing their work is key. With large multi-gigabyte projects, outdated tools have stifled industrial team agility, time-to-market milestones, and impacted P&L stakeholders.
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
