7SIGNAL, The Wi-Fi Performance Company, is proud to announce the issuance of patent number 9,813,930 by the USPTO acknowledging its latest innovation that combines Wi-Fi performance testing with wireless network access points.
The patent entitled, Method and Apparatus for Integrating Active Test Capability To A Wireless Access Point or Base Station, addresses the need to provide full visibility into true wireless service quality within the $5.4 billion enterprise WLAN market that grew 7.2% in 2016, according to IDC.
“This patent complements our growing intellectual property around wireless performance management,” stated Veli-Pekka Ketonen, founder and Chief Innovation Officer for 7SIGNAL. “With Wi-Fi networks being so mission critical to operations today, the need for proactive, continuous Wi-Fi monitoring, testing and alerting has accelerated. One way to accomplish this is by integrating synthetic wireless network performance monitoring capability with the access network itself. While this may sound straightforward, co-locating and simultaneously operating two radio transceivers at the same frequency band is far from simple. Done incorrectly, it destroys performance of the access point, gives incorrect performance data and has negative impact on the end user experience.” Ketonen further stated.
