LAN tester upgrade meets 5GHz Wi-Fi testing demands

06-07-2018 | IDEAL Networks | Test & Measurement

IDEAL Networks has upgraded its LanXPLORER Pro in-line network troubleshooter with updated software and a new Wi-Fi testing accessory to support both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies.

“With so many channels now using the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi frequency, many business users are finding that the speed of their network suffers. This means that companies are increasingly moving to 5GHz Wi-Fi to beat congestion and prevent performance from depreciating,” explains Tim Widdershoven, global marketing manager for IDEAL Networks. “To meet this demand, we have introduced a new Dual Band USB Wi-Fi Adapter for LanXPLORER Pro.”

When coupled with the latest free software updates, the new USB antenna allows enhanced functionality to support testing for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi testing in accordance with the 802.11a/b/g/n/ac international test standard.

The software updates for LanXPLORER Pro have also improved Wi-Fi testing capabilities and accuracy by allowing the tester to display new RF parameters such as signal strength (dBm) and SNR). This makes the tester an effective, time-saving tool for Systems Integrators and IT Technicians that need to test all their devices have the Wi-Fi access they need.

“Overall, the updated software and upgraded USB antenna provide a better user experience, alongside bug fixes,” says Tim. “This ensures that all the testing and troubleshooting needed for Wi-Fi and network installations can be done with just one tester as simply and efficiently as possible.”
