WiFi Assurance – Possible Only with the use of a Multi-Radio Solution


An optimized wireless network is not the only thing that WiFi Assurance can do. WiFi Assurance is about providing high-performance, reliable, predictable wireless communication solution that has no surprises, no delayed responses, and dropped connections. WiFi Assurance will constantly deliver exceptionable visibility making networks faster and a lot more stronger. But the negative aspect to this is  that you will need to have a multi-radio solution in order to achieve total WiFi radio Assurance.


A radio is what is used by a lot of modern communication devices so that they can communicate on a wireless network.  Read on to discover why true Assurance requires a multi-radio sensorIf you want to know why a multi radio-sensor is needed for true wireless network assurance read on to find out more.


What are 2 WiFi radios capable of?


Frequency Bands

In our modern era, WiFi commonly utilizes 2 bands of frequency namely – 5GHz and 2.4Ghz. Those two bands can be commonly seen being used in workplaces such as the hospital, the warehouse, offices, and schools. Even if both of the bands are up and running, WiFi assurance can still not be provided unless the two frequency bands are monitored and analyzed frequently. This requires a minimum of two radios, one to analyze one frequency band. One radio solutions are quite ineffective as customers will have no choice but to constantly switch between bands, this means that there will be times where there are serious loss of data. What WiFi assurance means is constant and consistent optimization. The switching between bands is call time-slicing, and time slicing prevents consistent problem identification and detailed analysis.

Now what can you do with 3 WiFi radios?


Can Conduct Network Tests


Now you might ask, what’s the point of having a multi-radio solution if there are only 2 frequency bands, why would you even need more than one WiFi radio for the job? There are a few number of reasons why that is the case, but the number one main reasons is the ability to be able to conduct synthetic network tests. A network test provides a very effective solution of identifying the root cause of any performance issues that might occur as well as give visibility and insight to networks. These tests can be device monitor, speed tests, security audits, performance tests, application tests, and etc.


Wireless Ecosystem Analysis


The wireless ecosystem spans far and wide. You are not given good visibility into the vast ecosystem with the use of one or two radio wifi assurance solutions as it can only be able to monitor 1 or 2 channels at one time.


WIP is actually vendor agnostic, what that means is that it analyzes the whole ecosystem as it does not approach it from the perspective of a vendor, this solution can survey the whole ecosystem without affecting the analysis of the two bands. 




The main reason as you can see is that in order to have true wifi assurance, solution’s should be able to handle different tasks without affecting the other that is why multiple radios are needed.
