Wireless Valley Communications has announced RF Manager, a software solution that visualizes real-time RF activity to assist network managers in detecting and resolving problems that impede wireless network performance.

The platform-independent software enables the monitoring of RF activity, including detection of wireless network issues. The software collects real-time network data from a variety of sources including access points, network management software, and sensor overlay systems. It identifies problems by determining the discrepancies between the planned network parameters and actual activity.

The RF Manager console allows network managers to view a wireless dashboard containing critical network performance statistics, identify deployment and configuration errors, view real-time coverage maps and identify coverage holes, discover areas with interference, evaluate bandwidth usage and capacity utilization, and monitor and guarantee the availability and performance of mission critical business applications delivered via the wireless LAN. After a problem is identified, the software recommends one or more possible courses of action to solve the issue, such as a hardware configuration change or the addition or removal of access points from the network. The product enables management of all access points, regardless of the manufacturer.

The product will be available in Q3 2005.
