Smallest 2.4 GHz Spectrum Analyzer Created
April 24, 2006

MetaGeek, LLC has successfully created the world’s smallest 2.4 GHz Spectrum Analyzer: The Wi-Spy. According to the company, the device sells for about 40 times less than traditional spectrum
analyzers and will become an excellent resource in the future of troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks.

The performance of wireless devices is commonly inhibited by
radiowaves from other wireless networks, cordless phones and
similar devices. Even a microwave can interfere with the best
wireless equipment, significantly reducing productivity.

Many companies achieve optimum performance from their equipment by using a spectrum analyzer – a device that tracks and records different wave frequencies possibly interfering with a wireless network. According to the company, with the release of Wi-Spy, MetaGeek has now provided an extremely affordable spectrum analyzer. The Wi-Spy software can visually displays many wave types and is capable of storing real-time data for later reference, making it the perfect tool for anyone troubleshooting wireless networks or optimizing WLAN signal strengths.
