... if WLAN communication is to work in business-critical divisions

The situation: radio applications based on WLAN technology are used to an ever greater extent from one year to the next and are becoming increasingly important for business processes. Indeed certain applications are only possible thanks to this very technology.  This in turn leads to more stringent requirements in terms of the performance and availability of WLAN-based applications. The operation of such challenging networks becomes ever more complex, requiring operators and users alike to quickly identify or eliminate, and ideally avoid, even sporadic interference. This requires comprehensive information on the actual capacity and operating condition of the network as well as the development of WLAN communication, and conventional technology does not allow for this in a suitably efficient manner.

 

Our solution: eliminating specific interference in radio applications and identifying potential bottlenecks require radio communication to be recorded and analysed comprehensively. GHMT has facilitated problem- and situation-oriented analysis as well as troubleshooting in the radio channel with specialists both on- and off-site. To this end, the portable and robust GHMT WLAN monitoring system is positioned in the relevant industrial environment or business-critical areas to allow GHMT to comprehensively record communication on all relevant WLAN channels and conduct protocol analysis. Real-time spectrum analysis can furthermore be performed alongside protocol analysis and log-file analysis of terminals or production systems.

 

Your added value: communication between WLAN access points and WLAN-based terminals is monitored continuously and fully in the relevant business-critical areas. In customized cycles, you as the end user or in-house operator receive informative reports on the current  situation and, if required, substantiated recommendations for optimizing WLAN-based communication.  In the event of a fault, data from the faulty  radio communication can be used to boost troubleshooting efficiency. This is the only way to eliminate large-scale sporadic interference in an economically viable manner. Analysis of the data gathered allows us to detect development trends in the network, for example with regard to bottlenecks, early on and to take appropriate action.
