Wi-Fi Networks Observability
WiFiProbe provides Wi-Fi network observability by measuring end-to-end service performance from the end user's perspective and locations while collecting all relevant technical data for the operations teams.
The probe constantly measures the availability and performance of the services and components of the wireless technology stack using scripted tests.
The relevant summary data for each measure is stored in a time series database for rapid and concise visualization. Furthermore, the detailed logs and .pcap files are captured and kept to be readily available for an effective drill down.
The set of predefined scripted tests can be extended, creating new scripts that implement bespoke interactions and validations of the components of the customer architecture, like particular authentication methods or captive portal interactions.
The Edge and Cloud distributed system provides a comprehensive solution for collecting and accessing data.
Data is collected and securely stored in the device's flash memory, then synced to the cloud for secure long storage, aggregation, and easier access.
The user interface (UI) is available on both the cloud and the device, enabling immediate diagnosis and fast data access.
The edge device UI can be accessed directly via several methods, including:
The platform provides state-of-the-art cybersecurity through several features, including:
The diagnostics of Wi-Fi services can be complex and time-consuming, as they depend on the correct operation of several components, including hardware and software.
WiFiProbe streamlines this process by mapping collected data points to a comprehensive ontology and applying statistical analysis and machine learning techniques to identify trends and anomalies.
WiFiProbe provides rapid ocused anomaly identification so that it can be assigned to the appropriate team for resolution, leading to a deeper understanding of the overall system and lowering operational costs.
Organizations with extensive IT systems have often set up Operation Centers with specific software and procedures.
WiFiProbe is straightforward to integrate with the existing systems, and its test results can be pushed directly to the Operation Center while allowing for detailed drill-down when needed.
While a modern interface like OpenTelemetry is the preferred integration tool, WiFiProbe also supports legacy methods such as:
