Powerful heuristics for smarter troubleshooting
At its core, Wireless Health is a powerful heuristics engine that rapidly identifies anomalies impacting end users’ experience across every stage of client connectivity — association, authentication, IP addressing, and DNS availability — for rapid root cause analysis and response.
Using Wireless Health, you can immediately see if users are able to access your network, identify problematic APs and clients, and pinpoint stages of failure.
Take a Closer Look
Successful wireless network access
depends on several steps
Associate with an AP
Authenticate to the network
Obtain an IP address
Resolve hostnames through DNS
Wireless Health allows the IT administrator to dive into these metrics and have them simply expressed in the intuitive Meraki dashboard.
Once connected, a closer look at latency on the network points to the kind of experience wireless clients are having, and whether they are experiencing any issues. The health of each access point is also assessed to ensure it has the capacity and best configuration to meet the demands of wireless clients. By combining this information, wireless networking issues can be quickly identified, prompting either configuration changes or improvements to the physical network deployment.
