Cognio , the market leader in Wireless LAN (WLAN) spectrum analysis solutions, and MobileAccess Networks , a leading in-building wireless network provider , announced they are teaming up to ensure the quality and reliability of enterprise wireless networks.
Complementing the MobileAccess Universal Wireless Network with Cognio Spectrum Expert means that customers receive real-time spectrum analysis capabilities that help to detect foreign causes of interference that can degrade network performance.
As multiple wireless services are deployed within large buildings , the challenge of managing signal interference between those services grows exponentially , impacting coverage and capacity. This potential for generating interference in a multi-service environment is significantly influenced by the customer's deployment approach. The MobileAccess Universal Wireless Network mitigates interference risks associated with separate or parallel wireless networks. With its Wire-It-OnceTM architecture , the MobileAccess solution delivers all of a customer's wireless services over a single , multi-service infrastructure , containing the interference challenge to one network. The MobileAccess solution carefully conditions every signal to ensure that there is no service-impacting interference between the many wireless services running on the system.
By adding Cognio's Spectrum Expert to a multi-service wireless environment , enterprises can protect against unexpected external interference , further enhancing their wireless environment. The Cognio tools provide real-time spectrum analysis , so that customers can isolate where and when their wireless network is at risk from foreign interference. The combined MobileAccess and Cognio solution is highly advantageous for large enterprise customers that deploy multiple wireless services indoors and require ongoing interference detection capabilities.
"Disparate infrastructures and networks create huge challenges when it comes to the predictability and resiliency of wireless applications and services , " said Jeff White , executive vice president at Cognio. "We are excited about our relationship with MobileAccess because together we address both the interference issues caused by multiple wireless networks and the introduction of foreign devices. Cognio provides enterprise IT managers the unprecedented ability to identify devices that degrade network performance, ensuring that WiFi and other networks operate at peak performance and support mission-critical network services."
