“inSSIDer Office is like a Swiss Army Knife for Wi‑Fi troubleshooting."
-Pete Balkus, VP of Prod Development, IT, & Operations at XOS Digital
inSSIDer Office is a Wi‑Fi optimization and troubleshooting software that takes Wi‑Fi network discovery to a whole new level. With one glance at the easy-to-read software, you’ll be able to find poor channel placement, diagnose low signal strength, and see invisible interference in the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. Data provided by inSSIDer Office will help you make educated decisions about where to place access points and give expert advice about channel recommendations. With this easy-to-use software you’ll be able to create a more reliable network without formal training.
Take the guesswork out of channel selection. inSSIDer Office shows you where the best channel is once and for all. Stop sabotaging your setup by causing your AP’s to overlap. You’ll be able to visually see which networks are on which channels, so you can avoid competing for bandwidth with your neighbor’s network.
In addition to channel-by-channel stats, inSSIDer Office's channel recommendation algorithm has been redesigned to handle multiple radios within the same network, making channel planning on a multi-AP network simple and accurate.
Do you manage more than one AP? With inSSIDer Office you can look at your network at a logical ESSID level, or by individual radio in the Physical grouping view. With new features like network drill down and the ability to alias your AP’s radios with a new name, you can see the information you need at a glance. In addition to the channel-by-channel Wi‑Fi & RF statistics in the Channels view, inSSIDer Office's channel recommendation algorithm has been redesigned to handle multiple radios within the same network, making channel planning on a multi-AP network simple and accurate.
Wi-Fi is probably one of the many hats you wear every day. You might be the jack-of-all-trades IT person at a small company, or just the “techy” one in the family trying to stream the latest Game Of Thrones episode with surround sound to your wireless speakers. Either way, you don’t have a lot of time to spend on learning everything there is to know about Wi-Fi. With inSSIDer Office, you won’t need to, because it has built-in helpful recommendations and tips to show you what you’re looking for and how to fix the problems that you do find. With just a few clicks, you can get channel recommendations as well as expert advice so you can create a reliable network in minutes.
Out of the box, inSSIDer Office is easy to use for network spot checks at a customer site. But what if you discover an issue, and want your company’s Wi-Fi guru back at the office to check it out? Instead of sending the Wi-Fi expert to every single customer site along with the technicians, you can now capture on-site recordings with inSSIDer Office, then export them as a .wsx file for later analysis in Chanalyzer. Your team lead back at the office can then fire up Chanalyzer, review recordings remotely, and solve the issue quickly without ever leaving their desk.
There are two versions of the Wi-Spy USB-based spectrum analyzer: The legacy 2.4 GHz-only Wi-Spy Mini, and the future-proof Wi-Spy DBx that analyzes both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. Both devices are small enough to fit in your pocket, and when combined with inSSIDer Office for Windows allow you to see the frequencies and channels where possible interfering devices are operating.
“Being able to see the RF spectrum is huge. I can see all types of interference, not just Wi‑Fi devices.”-Pete Balkus
