TamoGraph Site Survey is an application for performing Wi-Fi site surveys. It runs on Microsoft Windows and supports 802.11ac, 802.11n, 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g wireless networks. TamoGraph is developed by TamoSoft, a privately held New Zealand company founded in 1998[1] that specializes in network analysis software.[2][3][4]

Functionality[edit]

TamoGraph is used for measuring and visualizing such WLAN characteristics as signal strength, signal-to-noise ratio, signal-to-interference ratio, TCP and UDP throughput rates, etc.[5] Visualizations are overlaid on floor plans[6] or, in case of outdoor surveys, on site maps that can be imported from one of the online map services. Data is collected by a portable computer using a compatible Wi-Fi adapter.[7][unreliable source?]

Features[edit]

  • Passive,[8] active, simultaneous passive/active, and predictive[9][10] survey modes
  • Automatic access point location[8]
  • Detailed information about access points:[6] channel, supported rates, encryption, etc.
  • Support for outdoor surveys using GPS[8]
