Silex Technology Introduces the NX-1 WLAN Enterprise Network Analyzer

Remotely Manage Enterprise Network RF Environment

Santa Ana, CA., September 27, 2016 – Silex Technology America, Inc., a global leader in wired and wireless networking solutions, today introduced the NX-1, a wireless LAN enterprise network analyzer. The NX-1 provides an easy to understand simple menu even for those unfamiliar with specialized WLAN knowledge to analyze, sniff, and troubleshoot WLAN networks. Remote monitoring and PC-less operation are key differentiating NX-1 features eliminating technician, PC, and expensive analysis software on-site, reducing cost & field time.

Silex believes in “When it Absolutely Must Connect” as the guiding business principle. At the core of our vision is the dream of realizing a reliable always-on network. To achieve this vision, we have developed the NX-1 for our customers – OEMs and service providers. The NX-1 helps them manage their WLAN networks using four powerful built-in functions:

1)     Environment Survey

2)     Spectrum Analyzer

3)     Network Observation

4)     Protocol Sniffer / Frame Capture

Just installing the NX-1 in the target WLAN environment, and turning it on starts automatic collection of the WLAN radio status information. The visual representation can be remotely viewed on a web browser using a built-in analysis function.

With Wi-Fi proliferation, 2.4 & 5GHz bands are increasingly congested posing a challenge to ensuring reliable WLAN communication. Throughput degradation and frequent disconnects are expected to be further exacerbated by the explosive growth in wirelessly-connected Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices in crowded offices, public spaces, and Wi-Fi hotspots negatively impacting office productivity. The NX-1 visualizes the network’s RF environment, and helps identify and troubleshoot the causes of network instability.
