WiFi is no longer a luxury. Your users depend on WiFi for business, education, healthcare, and entertainment. But delivering reliable WiFi in complex network environments can be difficult. That’s why we built Chanalyzer Essential – a bundle that includes Wi-Spy DBx, Chanalyzer + Report Builder, and a dual-band directional antenna.
Powerful Dual-Band Spectrum Analysis
Chanalyzer Essential includes Wi-Spy DBx, a powerful dual-band spectrum analyzer that measures WiFi and non-WiFi activity in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. Chanalyzer utilizes radio frequency data from Wi-Spy DBx to provide you with a real-time visual overview of your WiFi network environment.
Locate Sources of Interference
Once you're able to see interference, the next step is to eliminate it. Unlike the omnidirectional WiFi antenna in your laptop or wireless adapter, a directional antenna is highly focused to pinpoint non-WiFi sources of interference. This allows you to actively seek out and remove loud transmitters from your WiFi environment.
Monitor Channel Saturation and Intermittent Interferers
By graphing every access point within reach and pairing it with the raw RF information provided by Wi-Spy, Chanalyzer provides you with all the information you need to monitor and manage saturated channels. The built-in recording feature even allows you to track the most frustrating WiFi problem – intermittent interference – and come up with a plan to eliminate it for good.
Find and Eliminate WiFi Dead Spots
Identifying gaps in your coverage area is paramount, whether you are planning out a network the first time or testing existing coverage to maintain reliability. Chanalyzer quickly reads the wireless environment, displays every SSID within range, and reports the signal strength in real-time so you can ensure quality coverage for your users.
Report Your Findings with Ease
Utilizing Report Builder – included in Chanalyzer Essential – you can add a snapshot of any image or table with just a few clicks. Then add your own pictures and descriptions (or just use the defaults) to provide context. After you’re done, export to PDF to create a visually compelling report of dead spots, saturation, and rogue APs that your boss or clients can understand.
Purchasing & Delivery
Always free shipping
If your Cisco Meraki device fails and the problem cannot be resolved by troubleshooting, contact support to address the issue. Once support determines that the device hardware is in a failed state, they can process an RMA and send out a replacement device free of charge. In most circumstances, the RMA will include a pre-paid shipping label so the faulty equipment can be returned. Note that, for end-customer device security, RMAs may only be requested by Full Organization Write Admins, or Network Write Admins (for only devices in networks they are Admins of). Meraki Support will not process RMAs unless the support agent can verify the requester has sufficient network permissions. If you have not received a pre-paid shipping label in the box, please check your email inbox and spam folders 24-48 business hours after the replacement has been received for an email from FedEx or UPS to print the return label. More information can be found here on Cisco’s website; https://documentation.meraki.com/zGeneral_Administration/Other_Topics/Returns_(RMAs)%2C_Warranties_and_End-of-Life_Information Hardware Returns If you are experiencing hardware issues, please contact Cisco Meraki support by logging in to dashboard (Help > Get help) or by calling us. To request a return materials authorization (RMA), please complete the RMA request form in the Meraki dashboard. If your RMA request is approved, Cisco Meraki will email you an RMA number and a return shipping label free of charge. We will ship replacement units within five business days of receiving your defective units. If no trouble is found, we will contact you before taking further action. If you require advance replacement, please call Cisco Meraki technical support. Advance replacement orders will ship within 1 business day.
