Spectrum Analyzer Support
Are radio interference sources causing you problems? Do you even know if they are? Now VisiWave Site Survey has full support for collecting and mapping radio interference using a 2.4GHz or 5GHz spectrum analyzer. The Wi-Spy™ spectrum analyzer, a USB 1.1 device from MetaGeek LLC, supplies details of the radio frequency disturbances found in the 802.11a/b/g/n/ac radio spectrum. Just plug the USB device into your laptop and begin collecting spectrum data using VisiWave Site Survey. Then create detailed interference maps using VisiWave's reporting abilities just as easily as any other wireless coverage maps.
The VisiWave Combo products bundle a Wi-Spy spectrum analyzer with VisiWave Site Survey providing everything you need to preform a Wi-Fi and spectrum site survey except a laptop and wireless adapter. VisiWave Site Survey Combo 2.4x bundles the Wi-Spy 2.4x spectrum analyzer which covers the 2.4GHz 802.11b/g frequency range. VisiWave Site Survey Combo DBx bundles the Wi-Spy DBx (dual-band) spectrum analyzer which covers both the 2.4GHz 802.11b/g frequency range as well as the 5GHz 802.11a frequency range.
VisiWave works directly with a Wi-Spy device to collect and visualize spectrum data. But, you will probably also want the software product Chanalyzer. Chanalyzer is the spectrum analysis software that visualizes Wi-Spy spectrum readings in real time. Chanalyzer displays RF data collected from a Wi-Spy spectrum analyzer, showing you the channels and frequencies where Wi-Fi, ZigBee, and other possibly interfering devices are active in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. Chanalyzer’s Session Manager provides the ability to categorize your spectrum survey captures by room, floor, or site. The Waterfall Navigation feature allows you to jump directly to the point of a recording where RF activity was highest—a huge time savings over linear analysis. A daytime color scheme ensures readability in bright locations. Whether you're installing WLANs or engineering wireless devices, Chanalyzer has the features you need to get the job done.

Chanalyzer's Report Builder
Chanalyzer's Report Builder accessory provides an easy way to create a record of your findings and actions taken to correct issues.
