The road to optimal home Wi-Fi – why frequency band and channel become more and more important
Users are still barely aware that the chosen channel significantly influences the quality of the home Wi-Fi. In the widely used 2,4-GHz frequency band especially, the number of existing Wi-Fi networks is consistently on the rise. This is no surprise, since nowadays every modern smartphone or tablet offers the possibility to create an ad-hoc access point. Nowadays, dozens of Wi-Fi networks crowd the same environment in urban areas – many among them transmitting on the same channel. The result? An unstable connection, massive speed loss and severely reduced signal strength.
Analysis and optimisation of the Wi-Fi infrastructure easily done with Quickline WLAN Optimizer
Even if users are aware of the problem that necessitates an adequately configured Wi-Fi infrastructure, the correct configuration can be an insurmountable obstacle for users. The optimisation process demands technical know-how, time, and patience. This is where the Quickline WLAN Optimizer comes into play and offers support: an interface designed for maximum user-friendliness guides the customer through the process and offers, if desired, detailed information on every step (e.g., by providing a clearly arranged graphical display of the current Wi-Fi environment). This results in an optimally configured Wi-Fi – both in the 2,4 GHz and in the 5 GHz frequency band – a well-informed consumer, and increased trust in the service provider. Customer service is extended all the way to the consumer’s home computer, hotline calls and subsequently support costs are reduced significantly.
