The AirCheck G3 has two sets of Wi-Fi network interfaces: a 2x2 adapter to scan and test Wi-Fi networks, and a 1x1 adapter for remote control connection and active testing. The test interface supports 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax and can show analysis of utilization and status of Wi-Fi channels, SSIDs, BSSIDs, access points and client devices. The AirCheck G3 provides full 6GHz support.* The AirCheck G3 has a built-in Bluetooth v5/BLE radio for connectivity and conducting BT/BLE site surveys; USB interfaces provide connectivity for accessories and other devices.
Simplifies tasks and empowers technicians to verify complex networks with next generation AutoTest
The AirCheck G3 has out-of-the-box AutoTest profiles with best practice pass/fail thresholds for quick assessment of Wi-Fi network configurations and services. Multiple profiles can be created for complex Wi-Fi networks with multiple SSIDs, each with its own set of IP targets. These can then be organized into profile groups that execute each test against each profile in sequence. The result is that multiple SSIDs can be verified and documented in one go. Since the pre-defined profiles can be executed individually, the profiles group serves as a resource for technicians to verify each specific SSID during troubleshooting. With profile groups, engineers can transfer their network configuration and test knowledge to technicians, saving training time and effort. AutoTest runs a series of tests by connecting to a selected wireless network (associate to an AP), providing a status indication of Success, Warning, or Fail. This comprehensive test validates not only the Wi-Fi connection, but also each critical supporting network service.
• Wi-Fi Link Test – validates the ability to connect to the selected network. Drilling into the link test provides in-depth information about the SSID, signal strength/SNR, channel utilization, retries, and PHY rate. The Wi-Fi Link Test graphs save and display data for up to 24 hours, providing a way to “go back in time” to identify specific problem instances.
• Channel Test – shows the channel on which the AP is operating and the current 802.11 and non-802.11 utilization in real time, and plots the percentage of channel capacity used by Wi-Fi devices and non-802.11 interference.
• AP Test – shows the AP name and SSID of the network it supports, its IP and MAC addresses, security, channel (if the BSSID is on multiple channels, the bold number indicates the primary), 802.11 types supported, and client associations (number of clients connected to the AP).
• DHCP, DNS, Gateway Results – these validate the availability and performance of critical network services via the Wi-Fi network. Diagnostics on each test provide details on response times and logs for troubleshooting.
• Troubleshooting Tools – packet capture, Browser, Telnet, SSH and other tools can be run from the above network services tests to help troubleshoot network problems.
