Pry Into Wireless Environment
The 2.4 GHz band is a busy place. A wireless internet operates in this range as well as other electronic devices such as baby monitors, cordless phones, garage door openers, and microwave ovens. Since WiFi can extend the length of a football field, nearby buildings or residences can also cause interference.

Detect & Avoid Noisy Channels
All activity across the 2.4 GHz spectrum is visible with Oscium WiPry-Pro and WiPry-Pro Combo. Measurement settings include 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n and 802.15.4 (ZigBee). SSID-specific activity is also available. Oscium is the only manufacturer to make this available to customers through the Apple App Store. Data is gathered externally and in full compliance with Apple's Made for iPod program. Visualize a network like never before - on an iOS device! It's possible to view data in real time or over time using waterfall mode.
