Discusses the threat that interference represents, and how spectrum assurance tools can provide a response yielding a significant improvement in reliability for network managers in enterprises of all sizes.
Interference is a fact of life in the unlicensed bands used by wireless LANs (WLANs), and is an increasing challenge in all WLAN environmentsthe enterprise, outdoors, and in the residence. As the number of unlicensed devices grows and as ever more mission-critical applications are deployed on WLANs, interference represents a challenge that must be addressed.
As the unlicensed bands are used by many devices beyond WLANs, these potential sources of interference are increasing in number. A new class of spectrum assurance tools deals with this challenge, promising far-reaching benefits for WLAN systems and their users. Based on the concept of the spectrum analyzer long used by engineers, these new tools are WLAN-oriented and designed for use by IT staff.
