Deploying a wireless IoT network in the field can be an expensive and time-consuming task, often riddled with technical challenges. Digi XBee® Network Assistant streamlines wireless deployment with these key functions: mass configuration and firmware updates, device mapping and signal strength analysis.
Digi XBee Network Assistant’s firmware update feature makes it easy to push firmware and configuration updates to the local network, ensuring the code is dispersed efficiently across all nodes.
With the device mapping feature, a network technician can place devices on a Google Map image or local static map to model an environment such as an office floor plan.
In a mesh network, the map function then displays the signal quality between the nodes. This signal mapping feature is a powerful interface; the network technician can view the network’s signal strength data and adjust nodes accordingly to optimize the entire local network.
