This week myself and Bryan are talking about troubleshooting with reports and analytics, Client Timeline, Client Rates Q&A live., Wi-Fi Q&A live. My Internet connection is 1Gbps I did a speed test on my 2010 macbook air with 802.11n connected at 270Mbps and got 186Mbps throughput. Then I did a speed test with my 2×2 Wi-Fi 6 laptop connected at 1.2Gbps and got 587Mbps throughput a big improvement!
EnGenius has added a new feature to it’s cloud Wi-Fi controller to help fight Covid-19 in the workplace. You are first required to opt in from the privacy menu to enable this feature. It looks at client devices with a close proximity to the same Wi-Fi Access Points at the same time.
Once enabled you select the client device in question. Exposure Analysis will show which other devices this person has come in close contact with during a given time period.
The above screen shows that Jeff’s iPhone came in close contact with Brandi’s iPhone at 10:07AM.
In conclusion EnGenius Cloud Wi-Fi with Exposure Analysis is great tool to aid in the reopening of businesses and schools while also exceeding the need for better Wi-Fi.
Engenius is adding a new feature called contact tracking that when enabled will show Wi-Fi users that have had close contact and at what time. This is similar to contact tracing that apple and google are adding to their smart phone platforms but uses Wi-Fi instead of Bluetooth. With contact tracking the business owner can implement this feature on their own and upgrade their Wi-Fi to the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard at the same time to handle increased traffic. This is a great way to protect your business and customers during the pandemic.
