TamoGraph Site Survey Description
More and more people rely on wireless networks in their own homes, so as to provide Internet access to all nearby devices, such as smartphones, laptops, tablets and desktop computers. However, depending on the adapter they use, the signal strength may decrease and even fall, so users can rely on TamoGraph Site Survey to analyze and evaluate the status of 802.11 Wi-Fi networks.
In order to make the most of the application, you first need to make sure it has correctly detected the type of wireless adapter you are using – if no compatible one is detected, you might need to download its appropriate drivers then try scanning for it again.
Once this step has been completed, you need to create a new project where you specify the type of building you are working or living in – such as indoor or outdoor, with high, low or medium attenuation. This is also the point where you get to mention the type of measurement unit you want to use.
Next, you can load the map of a building or you can find an online map of your location – you need to make sure it is as accurate and updated as possible, so as to make sure that the analysis you will perform is also accurate.
The main window of TamoGraph Site Survey enables you to calibrate your map, then initiate a passive or an active survey so as to determine which are the areas in your building that get a faulty Wi-Fi signal.
You can choose the visualization type you prefer, be it for passive surveys (signal level, AP coverage areas, signal-to-noise ratios, number of APs, channel bandwidth) or active ones (actual PHY rate, TCP upstream or downstream rates, round-trip time or associated AP).
All in all, TamoGraph Site Survey can prove to be a very reliable solution for all those looking to optimize their wireless networks as it can identify the vulnerable areas then generate clear and accurate reports.
