May 31, 2012
Oberon's DOT11 Mobile can perform a simplified site survey of a W-iFi network to help determine coverage issues.

Wireless connectivity provider Oberon recently released a free Android mobile app, available for download on Google Play. The app, DOT11 Mobile, is designed to permit fast, real-time assessment and graphing of a device's RF connectivity.

DOT11 Mobile provides an overview of a device's RF connectivity status along with the graph plotting the signal strengths over time. Options are available to manipulate the graph's polling interval and signal strength thresholds. Background polling of these metrics can be stored in the internal database for graphing and can be exported to a XML file on the device's SD card.

The app also monitors a device's cell signal strength to help determine if cell repeaters or femtocells are required for a given environment. Additionally, a company's admin or a home user can use DOT11 Mobile to perform a simplified site survey of a W-iFi network to help determine coverage issues.

Download Oberon's DOT11 Mobile Android app for free on Google Play.
