Fluke boosts device visibility on WiFi networks

-January 03, 2013

A BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) classification capability, available on Fluke Networks’ AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer Pro V10.5 and AirMagnet Enterprise V10.6 tools, reduces the cost and time to optimize and secure a wireless network for authorized and unauthorized smart phones and tablets.
The over-the-air smart-device detection and analysis function provides a high level of visibility into smart-device type, operating system, and usage details without the need to deploy end-user software agents.

According to Gartner, 821 million smart devices (smart phones and tablets) will be purchased worldwide in 2012, accounting for 70% of total devices sold. As these devices come onto corporate networks, it is increasingly critical for network engineers to be able to identify and report on them, optimize the network for BYOD in real time, and instantly identify and take action when unauthorized devices or rogues appear.

The BYOD classification feature streamlines the management of authorized smart phones and tablets that connect to the network by eliminating the need for client software on these devices. Wireless engineers can now use AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer and AirMagnet Enterprise to authorize these devices, as well as troubleshoot and resolve BYOD-induced security and performance issues.
