IT management software provider ManageEngineyesterday unveiled WiFi Monitor Plus, a free diagnostic application for Android mobile devices.
WiFi Monitor Plus is available via ManageEngine Free Toolsand lets IT administrators monitor, analyze and survey WiFi signals directly from their Android devices.
"[This app] transforms the way work is done by IT admins," Vidya Vasu, head of ManageEngine Free Tools, told MSPmentor. "It brings enterprise-grade analysis of the WiFi situation. Now, IT admins are forced to carry their laptops with them for analyzing WiFi networks and diagnosing issues. The app will be a handy alternative, which will make the IT admin more effective [and] maybe even proactive and responsive, resulting in happier employees."
Vasu noted the app provides IT admins with a channel interference graph that shows both co-channel and inter-channel interference.
"[This] 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," she said in a prepared statement.
WiFi Monitor Plus also features:
- Channel Graph widget
- WiFi heatmaps
- WiFi signal graph filters
The app includes two user modes:
- Analyzer mode -- Enables users to view available networks, graphs of the scanned networks' signal strength and channels with interference.
- Surveyor mode -- Allows users to survey a site for the best signal strength.
WiFi Monitor Plus can be downloaded for free here.
