Drill down to the root cause of Wi-Fi issues.
Eye P.A. is a wireless troubleshooting tool that allows you to capture all of the conversations on a Wi-Fi channel. From here, you’ll be able to visually drill down to get the play-by-play of the chatter on your network, and see the congestion from all of the networks that share your channels.
There may be a lot more slowing down your Wi-Fi traffic than you realize. Wi-Fi packet analysis shows you all of the management and control frames that make up Wi-Fi overhead. Eye P.A.’s built in tips allow you to optimize the ratio of Wi-Fi overhead to actual data, helping to improve your WLAN performance.
- Identify Issues Quickly
- Diagnose Network Health
- Monitor WLAN traffic
Wireless LAN Professionals
At the heart of Eye P.A. are “treepies.” These multi-layered pie charts display overall utilization for the total amount of air time, total packets, and total bytes present in a .pcap file.
Eye P.A. provides visualization analysis of:
- WireShark .pcap and .pcap-ng
- WildPackets Omnipeek .pkt and .apc
- Microsoft Network Monitor .cap
- Direct Capture with AirPcap Nx
Analyze with built-in tips and information.
After you select the network(s) you are interested in troubleshooting, Eye P.A. identifies network issues and suggests improvements based on its packet inspection of protection mechanisms, legacy data rates, encryption, and channel placement. You’ll be presented with information that suggests steps you can take to ensure your Wi-Fi deployment is of the highest quality possible.
Robust Filtering Engine.
Eye P.A. does all of the heavy lifting for you. The filters are applied quickly and are powerful enough to handle any combination you throw at it. What you see in the treepies and the associated data tables can be filtered by SSID, MAC address, and even Subframe Types. You can also use the adjustable time graph to select the time span that looks most interesting.
TIP: filter by MAC vendor type to find smart phones or tablets on the WLAN and track their roaming events.
Easy to understand packet and data visualizations.
In Eye P.A.’s Packets tab, you’ll find a table that breaks down the conversation in your capture as it happened. Being able to see the RSSI, Data Rate, and other specific packet-level details provides even more insight into the cause of a WLAN’s problems. You can even see the direction packets were being sent at a glance.
Just like with the tree-pies, the packets table will update to reflect whatever filters and timespan you’ve set. You can also customize the columns to only show what you’re interested in.
Eye P.A. is an indispensable tool for Network Engineers and wireless troubleshooters.
- Measure WLAN network retransmission
- Identify “slow talkers” on your wireless network
- Optimize your Wi-Fi settings
- Improve overall network throughput and capacity
