IT enterprises run on WiFi, an integral part of the organization, to scale across wired, wireless, and virtual environments to meet IT requirements. As wireless networks can be cost-effective, scalable, and simple, they are widely used to boost connectivity and availability.

Wireless network Monitoring is essential as it helps ensure the efficiency and continuity of networks. The amount of traffic handled by the network, bandwidth usage, and utilization can deteriorate the user experience if a WiFi monitor is not in place. Motadata AIOps helps analyze WiFi’s performance metrics and network components.

Wi-Fi Monitoring with Motadata AIOps

Motadata AIOps provides complete visibility into your network WiFi with comprehensive monitoring. It discovers wireless network elements such as Wireless LAN controllers, access points, and network devices. Then, Motadata AIOps categorizes these devices based on device type and acts as a WiFi usage monitor.

As Motadata AIOps comes with a range of capabilities, it helps ensure that your WiFi networks are always available and accessible. In addition, the built-in monitors and device templates allow you to track the key performance metrics and health of your WiFi network components.

Motadata AIOps monitors Cisco and Aruba wireless devices with the help of SNMP calls, while Ruckus components can be monitored via HTTP/HTTPS.

However, Motadata AIOps monitoring is not limited to these environments. You can always add a new environment from the device catalog and starts the Wi-Fi monitoring. 

Better Wireless Coverage for the End User 

The main objective of wireless infrastructure monitoring is to ensure that we are offering a better networking experience devoid of any kind of interference to the end client.

Motadata achieves this by identifying those clients that have low SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio). By identifying these clients, the network administrator can take the required course of action like channel tuning and many more.

Wireless LAN Controller

Wireless LAN network monitoring helps manages the access points across the network infrastructures. With the pre-defined configuration templates, add new network devices and monitor the key metrics efficiently.

The common SSID across the network architecture makes the wireless network perform seamlessly. The shared WiFi eases the network complexity and helps offer an efficient user experience.

Monitoring Wireless Controller

Motadata AIOps, a WiFi monitoring tool, lets you monitor the critical KPIs that impact the overall health and performance of the network. The access points, signal strength, and status help understand the WiFi network better and make strategic planning efficient.

Network Performance KPI

Mapping the clients with SSID makes it easy to locate the clients and provides complete visibility of their status and activities. In addition, client location monitoring helps find lost devices and know the client’s whereabouts.

Discover Rouged Devices

Identifying the network devices that disturb the overall network performance is vital. For example, discovering unauthorized wireless devices which can disrupt your network signals and make it challenging for the network devices to utilize the bandwidth properly.

Rogue Devices in Wi-Fi Network

Motadata AIOps, a WiFi channel monitor, detects the rouge devices’ transmission channel and helps you tune your wireless devices’ channel for a seamless user experience. It lets you configure the perfect channel for your WiFi infrastructure, ensuring smooth network performance and providing a seamless user experience.

Visualize Signal Strength with Motadata AIOps

Motadata AIOps, built on Deep Leaning Framework for IT Operations, lets you analyze the SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) in network transmissions and helps design your WiFi architecture with Heat Map facilities.

Heat Map of Wi-Fi Network

The Heat Map facility helps you finalize where you should configure your access points to get the best network performance, utilize bandwidth, and minimize downtime.

Motadata AIOps is much more than a simple WiFi network monitoring tool; it is a complete network monitoring solution with many facilities. Capacities that help you keep track of all of your network devices, such as servers, firewalls, routers, virtual machines, storage devices, and more. The analytics helps you maintain your network’s health and make confident decisions, enhancing your overall performance.

Basics of Wi-Fi Monitoring

Every day the network depends on Wi-Fi to ensure wireless, remote, and mobile devices stay connected to each other and to internet access points. With a huge number of devices accessing the internet and partaking in the networks at any point in time, reliable network uptime may go at a toss. This is when Wi-Fi monitoring can take center stage.

The practice of observing and evaluating wireless network activity to get valuable insights into the security, performance, and management of Wi-Fi networks refers to Wi-Fi monitoring. Wi-Fi monitoring helps ensure that all the Wi-Fi networks are functioning appropriately, monitor security threats, and troubleshoot issues proactively.

You can achieve Wi-Fi monitoring through using different software tools that address the issues you may face with your wireless network. Network admins can ensure great security and reliability of wireless networks through the use of Wi-Fi monitoring tools.

Wi-Fi monitoring functions using specialized software that capture and analyzes data packets transmitted over a wireless network. The transmitted data packets carry useful information of the details of the devices connected to the network, data volume being transferred, and particular in-use applications.

By thoroughly monitoring this data, network admins can get powerful insights on the network performance, find out potential security threats, and efficiently troubleshoot any connectivity issues that may occur.

There are various Wi-Fi monitoring tools out there, a few of the many are:


Packet Sniffers : Packet sniffers capture and evaluate data packets in real-time.

Network Analyzers: They provide in-depth insights into network performance, helping identify and troubleshoot performance issues.

Wi-Fi Scanners: Wi-Fi scanners aid with mapping Wi-Fi networks, discovering nearby access points, and identifying signal strengths.

Wireless Intrusion Detection Systems: They are designed to detect rogue devices on a network.

Cloud-Based Monitoring Services: Many cloud-based Wi-Fi monitoring services offer constant monitoring, reporting, and alerts.

Undoubtedly, Wi-Fi monitoring is essential for network management and security, but it does impose some risks and challenges as follows:

Overhead: Constant monitoring can add up to a huge amount of data and network traffic, which may hamper network performance if not maintained right.

Privacy Concerns: If not done transparently and with proper consent, Wi-Fi monitoring can lead to privacy threats. This is why it’s crucial to comply with data privacy regulations.

Security Threats: If monitoring tools are not rightly secured, they can be attacked by the targets since they are vulnerable to security threats.

Cost: These tools are expensive, and the additional costs that come with software and hardware may become a challenge for smaller enterprises.

Complex Configurations: The setup and configuration of monitoring tools can be intricate and complex. Any misconfiguration can lead to disruption or inaccuracies in the network service.
