Every engineer has his favorite tool, and mine is Fluke Network’s AirCheck Tester. Its form factor is essentially perfect, being small, lightweight, and rugged. The AirCheck is versatile, has a zero learning curve, and gives me essential WiFi & RF information for troubleshooting and network optimization. It boots up and powers down in 3 seconds, is like having an RF-aware third hand, and if I’m on-site with a customer, there’s a strong chance of it being in my pocket. I never visit a customer or teach a class without it. The UI is intuitive, and if I forget where a feature is, it takes only seconds to find it again because the UI isn’t cluttered with non-essential “fluff features.” Seeing is believing, and because they it’s a very affordable tool, every WiFi engineer can (and should) own one.
Attend this webinar to see how you can get Devin’s top tips on how the AirCheck tester delivers essential WiFi & RF information for troubleshooting and network optimization.
