Re-thinking the network dashboard

It doesn’t look like any WiFi monitoring tool you’ve ever seen, because it isn’t.

This dashboard is the product of years of frustration with existing tools, plus decades of usability, information design and software development expertise. Your job is difficult enough already. We want you to have a dashboard that you don’t need to learn, and don’t need a certification to use.

Status without distraction

Five traffic lights show the status of:

  • Experience: overall user experience
  • WiFi: WiFi connectivity and quality
  • Network: core network services
  • Internal: your most critical internal services, like captive portals
  • External: important external services

Under each traffic light, indicators show you the status of each location, SSID, service, and application.

With zero unnecessary charts or clutter, you can focus on what’s most important: are your users experiencing great WiFi?

Information at your fingertips

The simple dashboard is just the tip of an iceberg of information.

Hover your mouse pointer for a rich summary. Click to drill down into the details.

For each sensor you can see real-time and historical:

  • User Experience Status
  • Warning and Issue details
  • Signal Strength (RSSI)
  • Band
  • Channel
  • BSSID
  • DHCP response time
  • DNS lookup time
  • Latency to each service
  • Jitter to each service
  • Packet loss to each service
  • and more. our team of engineers are adding new features every week.

Backup mobile connection

The fully managed onboard mobile connection makes setup seamless by removing the need to manually set up each sensor. It also provides connectivity to the device when it cannot connect to WiFi, cannot authenticate, or when the WiFi’s backhaul is down.

A mobile connection means the sensor is always online and always uploading data, so you never lose sight of your network.

Last gasp power backup

It happens—someone uplugs the power adapter or the POE port goes down. Without backup power you can’t tell the difference between a power issue and a network issue. With your sensors installed at remote locations you can’t afford to worry about their status.

An array of supercapacitors provides backup power for the sensor to notify you of the power issue, make sure the network is still up, and enter sleep mode gracefully.

Monitor WiFi, apps and more

To users, WiFi is the Internet. So “the WiFi is broken” could mean there is a WiFi issue, or it could mean something else is wrong: LAN, DHCP, DNS, Authentication, print servers, captive portal, Active Directory, an AWS instance, YouTube, Google. the list goes on. Cape Sensors can test all of these and more.
