WiFi Monitoring Sensors
NetBeez offers WiFi sensors that run network and application performance measurements on any WiFi network. Wireless engineers can retrieve real-time and historical data for the following metrics:
- Transmitted and received bits/sec on the wlan0 interface
- Signal strength and link quality detected by the 802.11ac NIC
- Associated band, channel and BSSID number
- Bit rate established with the access point
- SSID scans to detect locally broadcasting networks

Monitoring a WiFi network from the client perspective provides many benefits, including quick outage detection, and reduced troubleshooting time. Here are three simple use cases where wireless engineers saved time and resources in the process:
1. Test the WiFi service after configuration changes
2. Performance measurement in high-density areas
3. Tuning transmit power adjustment algorithms
