YellowjacketPLUS 802.11b Wi-Fi Analyzer

Yellowjacket® PLUS is a wireless receiver system designed specifically for sweeping, analyzing and optimizing 2.4 GHz W-LANs and WISPs. The instrument measures coverage of DSSS networks which operate on the IEEE 802.11b standard allowing the user to determine the AP (Access Point), PER (Packet Error Rate), Signal-to-Noise (SNR), Multipath (Ec/Io) and RSSI signal levels aiding in locating the hub and access points of neighboring WLANs. Yellowjacket PLUS functions as a complete WLAN analysis system housing both the PocketPC® Windows CE® environment along with Berkeley’s precision receiver technology. An optional internal 12-channel GPS receiver may be added which allows Yellowjacket users to geo-time stamp every measurement taken for post processing later. Yellowjacket is also fully compliant with Hive Indoor Mapping Software so users may also create, edit and analyze W-LANs indoors where GPS reception is not possible.
