Geek Tools – Cape Networks for more than just wireless

Jonathan Davis continues his dive into Cape Networks in this post. He remains impressed by their capability not to simply diagnose WiFi, but also to provide client-side monitoring for external websites. This include more than simply being available, but includes latency and HTTP status codes. This can be used as another data point in your wireless toolkit.


Geek Tools – Cape Networks at Mobility Field Day 2

Jonathan Davis heard from Cape Networks at Mobility Field Day last month. He found their client-side monitoring hardware to be compelling, so much so that he used a test unit to solve a persistent outage problem he had previously be unable to consistently locate. By providing an always-on client-side sensor, Cape Networks is able to find problems proactively, the same way regular wireless users do.


Looking ahead to Mobility Field Day 2

Jonathan Davis has been to many Tech Field Day events before, but is especially interested in this Mobility Field Day. He sees the event as another step in his career development and feels like the theme really resonates with his passions. Looking forward at the presenters and delegates, he is excited for great discussions with innovative ideas and hopes to see constructive participation from everyone.
