Real-time Air Time

Since each wireless channel has limited capacity, efficient airtime utilization is crucial for high-performance Wi-Fi. Tonic shows you data rates in realtime, allowing you to identify slow-transmitting devices that are clogging up your network.

Multi-channel packet capture

Multi-channel analysis is critical when troubleshooting client roaming issues on a WLAN, especially when attempting to solve issues for highly-mobile applications such as Voice over WFi (VoWi-Fi).

Tonic supports Client Following, which allows you to use up to 3 adapters to watch for roaming devices (clients) on different channels.
