Follow Up Video: Presentation of Spectrum Analysis using Cisco Spectrum Expert, Autonomous AP with CleanAir
#WLPC_EU 2015 TenTalk presentation of how it is possible to use Cisco Spectrum Expert and a Cisco AP with CleanAir to perform Spectrum Analysis on site.
On-site Spectrum Analysis with Clean Air AP | Nick Turner | WLPC EU Berlin 2015
Thank you to Keith Parsons and the videographers involved in filming and editing the videos from the conference.
During #WLPC_EU 2015 I was asked whether the resolution of the data provided by CleanAir and the Spectrum Expert software is really necessary all the time.
No, I do not think it is, especially with the upcoming integration of Wi-Spy into Ekahau Site Survey (ESS), which will provide us with location specific spectrum data from a single sweep of a customer's site!
This will drastically change how I use the Cisco CleanAir Spectrum Analyser. The greater resolution of data is very useful when when looking for something specific or profiling interference in a particular area, the Wi-Spy hardware will allow me to determine if there is RF activity worth investigating further and where!
The integrated antennas provide spectrum data with an omnidirectional field, in the future I would like to try using an external directional antenna to identify interference sources with this setup.
