Oberon, Inc. has announced a new, free Android app available for download on Google Play. DOT11 Mobile™ is designed to permit fast, real-time assessment and graphing of a device's RF connectivity.
A company's Admin or a home user can use DOT11 Mobile™ to perform a simplified Site Survey of a WiFi network to help determine coverage issues. Additionally, DOT11 Mobile™ monitors a device's cell signal strength to help determine if cell repeaters or femtocells are required for a given environment.
DOT11 Mobile™ provides an overview of the device's RF connectivity status along with the graph plotting the signal strengths over time. Options are available to manipulate the graph's polling interval and signal strength thresholds. Background polling of these metrics can be stored in the internal database for graphing and can be exported to a XML file on the device's SD card.
The new DOT11 Mobile™ Android app is available free on Google Play here.
Oberon, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of wireless access point and telecom enclosures. As network physical security continues to grow as an industry issue, more network engineers are turning to products such as Oberon's wireless and telecom enclosures to simplify security compliance by locking down equipment to the public while maintaining easy access via a locking panel for moves, adds, and changes. Compliance with retail, government, and healthcare wireless security guidelines can be simplified using Oberon's locking enclosures and mounting solutions, Oberon's products provide the ability to complete moves, adds, and changes from within the back-box by opening a door panel, completely avoiding disruption of the air-handling (plenum) space and greatly simplifying maintenance processes. More recently, the Oberon Home and Office Network Cabinet expanded the company's role by making the benefits of secured and organized network equipment available to more small businesses and home offices.
