Dedicated sensor for Wi-Fi network monitoring
Posted on 20 September 2012.
Fluke Networks announced a new dedicated sensor for Wi-Fi network monitoring that eliminates the need for Ethernet cabling, and reduces the cost by up to two thirds in situations where cable installation is prohibitive from a time, cost or logistics perspective.


With its quick and easy installation, three internal radios and Wireless Connect feature, the SmartEdge Sensor Series 4 for AirMagnet Enterprise instantly extends Wi-Fi security and performance monitoring, providing immediate coverage in the face of explosive WLAN growth and the BYOD phenomena.

“With WLAN growth approaching $1-billion-per-quarter,2 and the dramatic increase in BYOD, the areas organizations need Wi-Fi performance and monitoring coverage is increasing exponentially,” said Chia-Chee Kuan, VP of the Fluke Networks WLAN business unit. “The SmartEdge sensor provides a solution to help secure and monitor the network by eliminating roadblocks caused by Ethernet cabling.”

For customers where Ethernet cable is already available or not cost prohibitive to install, the new SmartEdge Sensor can leverage its internal radios (two 802.11n 3x3 MIMO 450 Mbps plus one for dedicated spectrum analysis) to enable both 24x7 security monitoring, scanning and rogue detection, combined with client performance verification via AirMagnet Enterprise’s Automated Health Check (AHC) feature. AHC proactively tests and verifies WLAN network health from the end-user device all the way to the cloud and identifies issues before they impact the organization.

In addition, the SmartEdge sensor has been completely redesigned with a “fade-into-the background” enclosure, an integrated drop ceiling mount and recessed cable entry. The sensor also features increased memory capacity and support for 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet.
