Troubleshooting

We Can See & Solve Wi-Fi Problems
The Real-Time Frequency Monitor brings on-the-spot troubleshooting to a new level by combining spectrum and Wi-Fi data into one comprehensive, easy-to-read report.

We then summarize the Wi-Fi network condition; it shows why your network fails and where.

Channel Planner optimizes the channels in your network.

Yellowfiber can resolve

  • Coverage holes
  • Throughput problems
  • Excessive interference (Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi)
  • VoIP issues (jitter, packet loss, …)
  • Insufficient Wi-Fi capacity
  • Excessive VoIP traffic or AP overload
  • Misconfigurations with 802.11ac and 802.11n
  • Sub-optimal channel assignments
  • Rogue access points
  • Misconfigured access points
  • Missing security settings
  • Excessive number of stations per AP
  • Excessive load on a given channel
Reporting

Fully Customized Reports
YellowFiber creates a summarized report of the bill of materials, coverage and performance maps, capacity information, and the entire network layout and, the entire multi-floor, even multi-building site will be completely covered in a detailed report.

Reports contain
