NetSpot just announced that NetSpot PRO and NetSpot Enterprise for Windows are now available! In addition, NetSpot made all purchases universal. You can activate NetSpot on both platforms (Mac or Windows) with the same code!
How Does NetSpot Work?
NetSpot is a professional app for wireless site surveys, WiFi analysis and troubleshooting. It is also available for FREE if you just want to do WiFi analysis to improve your home or office WiFi performance.
Best of all, you do not need special equipment to use it. All you need is an Apple MacBook running Mac OS X 10.10 or better, or a laptop running Windows 7 or better. The NetSpot app works with any 802.11 network, whether it’s the old 802.11b standard, or the latest 802.11ac standard.
Analyze your Wi-Fi Coverage
NetSpot is the easiest native wireless site survey software for Mac and Windows. You need just a few clicks to load your office plan or area map before starting a network site survey.
To begin, just point to where you are on the map and NetSpot starts measuring wireless signal right away. You can move around and collect Wi-Fi data of the entire area.
That’s it! Now you have all the needed info to analyze radio signal leakages, discover noise sources, map channel usage, locate effective access points, etc.
Visualize Your Wireless Network
Efficiency-wise, your Wi-Fi network needs hotspots placed correctly and wireless channels assigned properly.
The visual Wi-Fi map you get with NetSpot lets you see all dead zones without coverage and optimize hotspots’ placements. You can adjust channels’ load and decide how to use them better.
Wireless Network Planning
NetSpot is also an amazing wireless survey tool for Wi-Fi planning: load a map, collect some wireless site survey data, and build a comprehensive heatmap of your network.
Now viewing each channel separately is as easy as making a pie. Once you locate an empty channel with no wireless networks – it’s the optimal selection for a new Wi-Fi network. NetSpot also lets you easily select channels for new Wi-Fi hotspots with minimal signal-to-noise ratio.
Troubleshoot Wireless Networks
Thanks to new Troubleshooting visualizations, you can easily and quickly identify connectivity and wireless interference issues, find sources of excessive noise, resolve Wi-Fi configuration problems, and get automated professional advice on every issue visualized by NetSpot PRO.
NetSpot PRO & Enterprise for Windows
