ManageEngine Launches WiFi Monitor Plus
|By Business Wire

the real-time IT management company, today launched WiFi
Monitor Plus. Available immediately, the free diagnostic app lets IT
admins in SMBs and large enterprises monitor, analyze and survey WiFi
signals in any area, directly from their Android mobile devices. WiFi
Monitor Plus is available for download at http://ow.ly/zsHg9.
WiFi Monitor Plus offers both Analyzer and Surveyor modes, making it the
first WiFi monitor to offer both modes in one app.
Analyzer mode lets users view available networks, graphs of the
scanned networks’ signal strength, and channels with interference. The
information helps users take appropriate actions to optimize WiFi
Surveyor mode allows users to survey a site for the best signal
strength. The heat map feature indicates the strength of the scanned
WiFi networks. Users can upload their floor plans and survey different
locations on the site for signal strength.
The application’s simple, user-friendly GUI helps users quickly access
relevant data including best signals, overlaps in a channel, and site
locations with the best signal strength. The app also has a Channel
Graph widget that users can add to their devices’ home screens to
instantly access the information without having to invoke the app. With
this free app, IT admins gain valuable insights such as the need to
switch off specific channels due to interference or deploy access points
to help improve WiFi connectivity.
WiFi Monitor Plus has smart filters to show signals with the best
strength by default and also by frequency. It intelligently filters out
the weak signals, making the interface clutter free. Users, however,
have the option to view all the signals on a single graph.
“IT admins responsible for ensuring good network connectivity will
immensely benefit from this app,” said Vidya Vasu, head of the
ManageEngine community and Free Tools. “The channel interference graph
that shows both co-channel and inter-channel interference is a unique
functionality that adds value by equipping the IT admins with actionable
information. They can quickly decide on a course of action such as
turning off a channel to increase the WiFi signal strength.”
Users who have tried the beta version of WiFi Monitor Plus have been
particularly impressed with the app’s level of functionality and detail.
“Good app! I used [WiFi Monitor Plus] to quickly map out our WiFi setup
and enjoyed using the function to see which APs were interfering with
others,” said Charlie Smith, technical director at Charles Dhekelia Ltd.
“I have previously used WiFi Analyzer for jobs such as this, but the
ManageEngine solution does provide a lot more functionality and granular
detail, which is definitely useful to have.”
Chris David, solutions implementation specialist at Enterprise Bank &
Trust, said, “One of my favorite features is that I can set the analyzer
to show all networks or just the best networks. This is actually really
handy if you are in a noisy area. Kind of hard to make heads or tails of
the data when there are several networks that are just barely in range
clogging up the graphs. I also like all the details you can get in the
WiFi scan. We’re IT — we love details!”

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
