“With NetBeez we gained the ability to determine the root cause and solve intermittent WiFi problems in under an hour.”

Christopher Pepper, Network Engineer III at URI

Enhance performance and uptime with a new generation of sensors

Collect real-time network connectivity and performance data with WiFi sensors that enable faster root cause analysis than many traditional monitoring solutions. NetBeez capabilities:

  • WiFi monitoring metrics such as signal strength, link quality, etc.
  • Plug-and-Play WiFi sensors for branch offices and headquarters
  • Software endpoints for Windows and Mac Operating Systems
  • Proactive alert detection via moving baselines and SLA thresholds
  • Network and application performance tests from the user perspective
WiFi Monitoring Metrics

WiFi Analytics from the Client Perspective

Wireless engineers can retrieve real-time and historical data for the following metrics:

  • Measure latency, packet loss, and network speed in real-time
  • WiFi connection timing: Association, authentication and DHCP
  • Signal strength and link quality from the client’s perspective
  • Associated band, channel and BSSID and bit rate established
  • Run remote SSID scans to detect locally broadcasting networks
  • Support for open, pre-shared, and EAP/802.1x authentication
  • Support for multiple SSIDs thanks to SSID hopping

How to Monitor a WiFi Network from the Client's Perspective

WiFi Sensors

NetBeez sensors are equipped with WiFi cards for monitoring and an Ethernet interface for reporting real-time data to the dashboard. The units can be powered via Power-over-Ethernet or Power Supply Unit.

WiFi Endpoints

NetBeez endpoints report WiFi metrics provided by the macOS and Windows operating systems, including connection and disconnection events. The data is sent in real-time to the dashboard for display and troubleshooting. WiFi metrics are also stored for historical review, statistical analysis, and reporting.
