In the latest version of WiFi Scanner we introduced full support for scanning on the 6 GHz frequency band. But this was limited to in-band discovery, meaning that your device could only detect 6 GHz devices if it itself supported WiFi 6E / 6 GHz. With some clever algorithm interpretation, we’ve been able to overcome this hurdle and tackle out-of-band discovery.

In 2020, following the new IEEE 802.11ax-2021 standard, the Wi-Fi Alliance announced Wi-Fi 6. This name was a bit of a misnomer, as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the United States had not yet opened up the 6 GHz frequency band for commercial use, so Wi-Fi 6 devices were still limited to the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands.

Three Types of Wireless Site Surveys

There are several types of wireless site surveys. One type is a passive wireless survey, which is conducted by collecting RF signal data while walking around the area. These measurements are then used to generate coverage heatmaps for desired area. Active wireless surveys are conducted by creating wireless network connections to either the installed WiFi network or test/temporary WiFi network and take signal and sometimes other measurements like speed testing and application testing. Predictive wireless survey / modeling is computer based design process that takes into considering the floor plan, wall material, and another other information that may impact wireless signals and generates signal propagation results / coverage heatmaps. Regardless of the type of survey used, the goal is to collect accurate and relevant data that can help design a wireless network that meets the needs of users.
