uberAgent 6.1 Preview: WiFi Connection Monitoring

While we’re finalizing version 6.1 of our user experience monitoring & endpoint security analytics products uberAgent UXM and uberAgent ESA, let’s take a look at yet another cool new feature: WiFi connection monitoring.

What Is WiFi Connection Monitoring?

uberAgent’s WiFi connection monitoring keeps track of the relevant quality and security parameters of the WiFi network through which a user’s endpoint is connected to the internet and/or the corporate network.

Why Monitor WiFi Connections?

With more and more users working from home or other locations outside the office, the WiFi connection becomes a critical part of the network. When a home office user is suffering from application performance problems, the root cause may well be a badly placed access point. Businesses need to be able to identify connectivity issues not only in the corporate network but also in the home office.

Which Metrics Are Collected by WiFi Connection Monitoring?

WiFi connection monitoring collects the following metrics for every WiFi network connection:

  • Network name (SSID)
  • Signal quality
  • WiFi standard (e.g., IEEE 802.11ac)
  • Authentication type (e.g., WPA3)
  • Is internet connectivity available?
  • Endpoint IP address (IPv4 and IPv6)
  • Endpoint MAC address

Are Wired & VPN Connections Monitored, Too?

uberAgent monitors all types of network connections, including wired Ethernet, VPN, and WWAN connections. Please see the network configuration information documentation for details.
