MetaGeek Delivers Greater Visibility Into Wi-Fi Network Interference Issues

New Spectrum Analysis Application, Chanalyzer Pro With Cisco® CleanAir™, Pairs Cisco's RF Intelligence With the World-Class Visualization Power of MetaGeek's Spectrum Analysis Platform

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - June 25, 2013) -  Announced during Cisco Live 2013, Chanalyzer Pro with Cisco® CleanAir™ is now available.  This new management tool is the result of ongoing collaboration between MetaGeek, LLC and Cisco -- using the formidable spectrum data collecting abilities of Cisco CleanAir Wi-Fi access points with the intuitive visualization capabilities of MetaGeek's Chanalyzer software.  Chanalyzer Pro with Cisco CleanAir™ increases visibility for end-users to troubleshoot RF interference remotely from anywhere in their network (or from a client perspective with a portable USB Spectrum Analyzer).

As RF interference issues become increasingly more important for mission-critical wireless networks to contend with, professional troubleshooting tools are crucial to quickly discover and mitigate interference. With today's announcement, Cisco users can expect enhanced spectrum analysis and ongoing application improvements when using the new tool.

Notably, Chanalyzer Pro with Cisco CleanAir™ has simultaneous 2.4 and 5 GHz visibility, providing the ability to display and record spectrum streams from both access point radios.  It also provides support for Cisco's WSSI (Wireless Security and Spectrum Intelligence) modules for the 3600 Access Point and enhanced interferer identification. All this is on top of the standard Chanalyzer Pro features that WLAN professionals have come to rely on for professional spectrum analysis.
