Hive Wi-Fi Mapping Coverage Software

PRESS KIT

HI-RES IMAGE

PRESS RELEASE

Hive™ is powerful mapping software that works with Berkeley’s Yellowjacket 802.11 (B, A or B/G) Wi-Fi analysis receiver system. Hive™ runs on an iPAQ® Pocket PC® allowing site surveys to be handheld and performed completely INDOORS or outdoors using real-time mapping coverage technology. No GPS reception needed. First, import image files such as bitmap, GIF, JPG, TIFF, etc. into Hive™ Site Initiator to modify and scale your floorplan. Walk through an office space, warehouse, campus or multi-floor building - any interior space that needs to be surveyed - and take Access Point measurements with Site Supervisor which places those measurements on top of your floorplan to get a comprehensive, bird’s eye view of any WLAN based upon MAC addresses, RSSI, SSID and more. Finally, view your Wi-Fi coverage results in table and graphical views using Site Investigator running under Windows 98, 2000, ME or XP OS.

Site Supervisor is an application in Hive that runs on the Pocket PC platform. When used in conjunction with Yellowjacket or Yellowjacket PLUS, Site Supervisor allows for precise surveys inside or around any structure without any use of GPS receivers. Once this data is captured onto the Yellowjacket's iPAQ, it is then exported to a PC for further analysis.
