Awair: Software Solution For Wireless Network Quality Monitoring

Awair acts as an early warning system by monitoring the frequency spectrum to identify potential service interruptions<br><br>©Fraunhofer ESK<br>

Wireless technologies are becoming increasingly popular for industrial applications because they are relatively low cost and offer added flexibility.

Special attention must be paid to how the various radio networks are set up however. An indispensable tool in addressing this issue is coexistence planning as detailed in the IEC/TS 62657 specification.

Awair independently uncovers and automatically reports interference by continuously monitoring key parameters within the radio spectrum and detecting abnormalities in the time and frequency domains.

Potential interference problems can thus be promptly identified and displayed, allowing them to be rectified before they lead to service interruptions. In production halls, Awair can recognize a wireless network node outage or the presence of a restricted radio device, such as a WLAN or Bluetooth® active mobile phone. Awair’s early warning system can help prevent production lines from grinding to a halt.

At the sps ipc drives in Nürnberg (November 26-28, 2013), Fraunhofer ESK will be presenting awair (hall 8, stand 8-300).
