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
