Network tester troubleshoots wireless interference issues

Availability of a wireless network tester from Netscout, which provides fast, simple and accurate isolation and troubleshooting of wireless issues, has been announced by RS Components. The AirCheck G2 supports a large variety of maintenance and troubleshooting issues such as interference problems or access-point access and configuration.

It is suitable for system designers, technicians and maintenance engineers, as well as anyone working in an industrial or commercial building with a wireless network.

The AirCheck G2 is a rugged handheld purpose-built wireless tester that supports the latest Wi-Fi technologies (802.11a/b/g/n/ac).

The unit has a one-button AutoTest, which quickly provides a pass/fail indication of the wireless environment and identifies common problems. It also shows an instant view of test results including network availability, connectivity, utilisation, security settings, rogue hunting and interference detection.

The tester also enables connectivity to a centralised test results management platform – Link-Live –which facilitates greater job visibility, project control and fleet management for larger distributed environments.

Based on the original AirCheck Wi-Fi tester, the G2 unit builds on its legacy to offer additional functionality such as 802.11ac 3-stream radio, a 5in. touchscreen display, Ethernet tests for AP backhaul verification, automatic uploads of basic connectivity tests to the Link-Live cloud service, and adjacent channel interference testing in AutoTest.
