WIRELESS COVERAGE TOOL
Netronics Coverage Tool (WCT) enables you to easily test the coverage of NetronicsWBS-2400 base stations in their actual locations. This takes the guessing game out of your installation process and allows you to optimize your site selection and network coverage.
The WCT allows you to test and validate the superior performance offered by NetronicsWBS-2400 base stations by measuring the range and throughput at every location throughout your coverage area.
The WCT provides you invaluable marketing information. The actual test results enable you to focus your marketing efforts in those areas where coverage has been validated and to guarantee the performance levels at each of your customer locations.
WCT is a critical and inexpensive tool to ensure a smooth deployment. Furthermore, the simple interface allows you to set it up and get going in no time. WCT is your key to a smooth, successful and cost-effective deployment.
How it works
The WCT allows you to measure the actual coverage and throughput in actual deployment settings. To operate the WCT all you need is to install it on a laptop, run the IPERF application on the server, and then take a drive in the area around the installed base station. Along the route, the WCT will collect the following parameters:
Coverage at each point
Throughput at each point
These results can be graphically displayed over Google Earth maps while you are driving and after completion (you will need of course to install Google Earth on your laptop).
The WCT is the ideal tool not only for the planning phase of your project but also as part of your on going periodical check-ups of your system. This will ensure your installation is functioning optimally and that you achieved the targeted coverage.
