Following a successful Beta period, today marks the official release of the new inSSIDer Office!
This new version of inSSIDer Office includes everything you love about inSSIDer 4 along with enhancements that ease the pains of small network administration. A full feature comparison table can be found in our Knowledge Base.
In just this screenshot you can see some of the updated features:
- Simultaneous 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz spectrum analysis when using Wi-Spy DBx
- Radio aliasing for all networks in your area (No more memorizing MAC addresses!)
- In-line analysis for your ESSID (No more switching back and forth to see the tips)
- Signal threshold (the dashed line across the graphs) that provides you a visual guide as well as informing in-app alerts
Another major rework in the new inSSIDer Office is the Channels View. Powered by Wi-Spy, this view provides you with statistics on a channel-by-channel basis that help you plan for deployment changes to your network, as well as gain understanding to your current performance. In this screenshot, the solid yellow chart shows us the utilization on Channel 1. The spectrum graph at the bottom shows a spike centered near Channel 1 that corroborates this finding (Wi-Spy measurements range from dark blue for “infrequent” up to bright red for “constant” utilization).
High channel utilization isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it is definitely something you need to know about as you assess your network performance.
