AirMagnet's Laptop Analyzer is the industry's most popular mobile field tool for troubleshooting enterprise Wi-Fi networks. Laptop Analyzer helps IT staff make sense of end-user complaints to quickly resolve performance problems, while automatically detecting security threats and other network vulnerabilities. Although compact, Laptop Analyzer has many of the feature-rich qualities of a dedicated, policy-driven wireless LAN monitoring system.
Automatically Detect Rogues and Network Vulnerabilities
Laptop Analyzer automatically identifies hundreds of performance problems, such as 802.11n mis-configurations, 802.11b/g conflicts, 802.11e problems, and QoS, as well as dozens of wireless intrusions and hacking strategies, including Rogue devices, Denial-of-Service attacks, Dictionary Attacks, Faked APs, RF Jamming, "Stumbler" tools, and many more. Laptop Analyzer also offers a convenient "Find Tool" that enables you to quickly track down rogue APs and non-complying devices that compromise network security. Also use Find Tool to align signals between antennas to quickly optimize reception in line-of-sight bridging.
Lockdown Security Policies
Laptop Analyzer enables you to set detailed security policies for all devices in your network. Designate your encryption and authentication methods then monitor your wireless LAN to check all devices for compliance with those policies. Also validate that the encryption methods themselves function correctly over the WLAN. Establish an even higher level of organized security by designating a list of approved APs for client access, and monitoring for exposed wireless stations, ad-hoc devices, and other vulnerabilities.
Monitor 802.11n Networks
Laptop Analyzer identifies and classifies all 802.11n capable devices in the network (including differentiating between standards-compliant and pre-standard 802.11n devices). It supports monitoring for 20 MHz and 40 MHz channels and also detects and classifies higher data rates used by the 802.11n devices. Using the Analyzer, users can classify/decode Non-HT and HT format traffic and physically locate 802.11n rogue devices operating in the environment (which are often invisible to non-802.11n analyzers). The Analyzer shows how to get true 11n performance that rivals what 11n can do in theory and enables a smooth migration into 802.11n for the user by recognizing and resolving conflicts between new 802.11n devices and legacy a/b/g devices.
