EVERETT, Wash. -- Fluke Networks today announced the AirMapper™ App, the first application for Android™ that provides a visual heat map of actual Wi-Fi throughput performance on smartphone and tablet devices. While existing solutions can map speed and signal strength or perform throughput spot checks, the AirMapper App is the first to provide a visual throughput map, which is key to optimizing Wi-Fi networks by taking the actual user experience of mobile devices into account.

“Full bars do not mean a mobile device is working properly on the network, and given the explosive growth of BYOD, our customers have been clamoring for solutions that help ensure smart devices are working properly on enterprise Wi-Fi networks,” said Chia-Chee Kuan, vice president of the Fluke Networks WLAN business unit. “Making it possible to see and optimize the actual throughput performance of Wi-Fi networks for smart devices is absolutely this product’s sweet spot for our customers.”

Wil Ankerstjerne, director of wireless networking at Computer Design & Integration, LLC, agrees. "As more of our customers rely on both personal and business-issued ‘compact wireless devices,’ there's increased pressure to deliver the same throughput and performance they experience on other network devices," Ankerstjerne said. "The AirMapper App provides a cost effective, professional-grade, simply-to-use tool I can deploy to my entire team who can then map signal strength and throughput – without having to use a ‘specialized resource.’ Adding AirMapper to our wireless tool box assures every client visit enhances CDI's wireless value proposition."
