OXFORD, OH — Today, 7signal, The Wi-Fi Performance Company, is showcasing its Wi-Fi performance management software at this years’ annual Ohio Higher Education Computing Council (OHECC) conference on the campus of Miami University. OHECC is a gathering of IT leaders from universities all over the state of Ohio who are searching for processes and technology that will enhance the student experience. The theme of this years’ event is Service Excellence By Choice, Not Chance and 7signal is doing its part to ensure service excellence by monitoring the Wi-Fi experience for conference attendees.
Miami’s IT Services group have set up 7signal’s Micro Eyes throughout the conference area allowing them to track and trend Wi-Fi performance metrics, such as throughput, packet loss, latency and jitter. The result is a proactive approach to WLAN performance managementthat allows IT Services to get ahead of any Wi-Fi issues that may be contributing to a poor Wi-Fi experience. Instead of waiting passively for complaints, the 7signal software identifies performance issues and alerts staff members when thresholds for acceptable Wi-Fi performance have been breached. The 7signal Sapphire system includes both active and passive testing of the Wi-Fi network to provide a comprehensive look at WLAN capabilities and performance.
As universities compete for students, enhancing the on-campus experience with high performance Wi-Fi has become a key strategy. The 7signal Sapphire solution provides university IT profesionals the system they need to centrally manage the performance of Wi-Fi in buildings all over campus. Gone are the days of chasing down issues with handheld speed testers and spectrum analyzers. Now, 7signal brings the data right to you.
