Berkeley Releases Handheld 802.11b/g Wi-Fi Receiver System
METUCHEN, New Jersey. -- February 28, 2004 -- Berkeley Varitronics Systems, Inc., the leader in 802.11 Wi-Fi propagation analysis test equipment, has released the latest innovation it its Yellowjacket 802.11b/a/g family.
Yellowjacket(TM) 802.11b/g is a calibrated wireless receiver system that interfaces with HP's iPAQ® PocketPC® in sweeping, analyzing and optimizing 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi Networks. The receiver measures all 14 OFDM/DSSS network channels for instant analysis of any access point's MAC, SSID and RSSI signal levels on or off any 802.11b/g WISP or Hotspot.
RF Propagation Analysis
Yellowjacket(TM) has the distinction of being the only true RF spectrum protocol analysis and direction finding tool accurate to within 1 dB all in the palm of your hand. Berkeley's calibrated receiver sweeps and measures all RF energy in the 2.4 GHz range as well as on each of the 14 OFDM/DSSS channels for detailed network inspection of any nearby 802.11b/g APs or STAs. Yellowjacket(TM) is a passive, network independent device with the ability to see the "whole picture" as well as pinpointing channel interference and hackers that plague so many 802.11b/g WISPs and Hotspots.
Yellowjacket(TM) automatically generates MAC authorization lists to detect and flag any AP or STA as friendly or suspect. WEP encryption is also detected and indicated for all APs/STAs.
Direction Finding & Indoor Mapping Options
Yellowjacket(TM) includes options for a DF Antenna to pinpoint W-LAN hackers and 2.4 GHz sources of interference. Yellowjacket(TM) also supports Bird's Eye(TM) Indoor/Outdoor Mapping Software that maps 802.11g & 802.11b coverage. No GPS required.
Yellowjacket pricing available with our without iPAQ PocketPC upon request. Available now.
