BVS Releases Site Survey Tablet PC Sof tware for Wi-Fi Analysis
Metuchen, NJ - Berkeley Varitronics Systems, Inc. has released Swarm(TM) tablet PC software for indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi site surveys.
Swarm(TM) combines the power of realtime Yellowjacket® 802.11b/a/n/g Wi-Fi receiver measurements with GPS geo-coding accuracy. Swarm(TM) software is composed of three unique applications that all run on the Yellowjacket®-TABLET PC. First, create your survey bitmaps with both Linear and GPS PROJECTOR software. Next, simply walk or drive to any spot with GPS reception while Swarm(TM) COLLECTOR scans all 802.11b/a/n/g channels and correlates them to your exact location automatically via GPS or manually by tapping on the touch-screen. GPS measurements provide both LAT and LON as well as time stamping for a complete Wi-Fi survey path anywhere in the world. Finally, survey data such as RSSI, MAC and SSID may be exported into Swarm's ANALYZER for further mapping coverage studies in multiple graphical and tabular layouts. In areas with little or no GPS reception, Swarm(TM) ANALYZER only needs a few reference points to fill in the locations for the rest making it effective for quick outdoor studies. Surveys may be exported further into KML files for plotting in applications such as Google Earth(TM).
