Thank you for your interest.
We are currently in the process of putting together an FAQ for Smartifi features and functions, and apologize for the inconvenience until then.
If we haven't answered your specific question here, we'd be delighted to be in touch with you and answer your questions directly. Please complete our contact form and we’ll get back to you shortly.
We are currently testing a beta release of our Smartifi Router Monitoring function with select ASUS models. Smartifi offers monitoring, diagnostics, and actionable recommendations to help identify and solve WiFi connectivity and quality problems.
In order to enable ASSIA agent, you need a compatible router and the Cloudcheck app. The cloudcheck app will tell you whether your router is compatible at first use. You can test drive the functionality by downloading the apps from the Google Play and IOS stores.
After you download the app, Cloudcheck first asks for your consent to do Diagnostics on your router. Once we receive your consent through the app, the ASSIA agent is enabled. We monitor low level network performance parameters, and don't see the contents of your IP traffic. We also provide an easy way to discontinue service, disable the agent and data collection through the cloudcheck app.
Here is a preview of unique Smartifi features:
1) Automatic WiFi Throughput Measurement for all devices on a WiFi Network:
Broadband speed test tools don't separately measure the throughput of the link between a WIFI router and a WiFI enabled device. The standard WiFi throughput testing for this case is done by iPerf. iPerf testing typically requires two laptops connected in a WiFi network. Both laptops must have iPerf software to do the measurement.
Cloudcheck Smartifi allows accurate measurement of the WiFi throughput on all devices connected to the WiFi Network, without requiring any special software on the devices. This patented throughput measurement technique is unique to ASSIA. The lab and field tests show over 95% accuracy compared to iPerf tools.
On the main Smartifi Screen, you will find a list of all devices connected to WiFi Router with the WiFi throughput values for each device/link.
2) Coverage Diagnostics/Performance Alerts
Smartifi provides coverage Diagnostics and performance alerts. Smartifi Diagnostics relies not only on the signal strength level but also correlates this value with the data throughput to avoid false positive. This helps identify potential holes in network coverage as it is experienced by an end user . (Signal strength alone is NOT a good indicator of how the end user perceives coverage.)
3) Interference/Noise Diagnostics
Smartifi identifies interference and noise issues and offers alternatives for improvement. Home WiFi environment features large number of WiFi devices, neighboring WiFi networks, devices emitting wireless signals beyond WiFi network, which all impact the interference and noise experienced at the WiFi router. Smartifi helps select the right band, channels and channel settings to mitigate the problems.
In this release of Smartifi, we don't modify any network parameters or do automated optimization. Smartifi+ is the future version of Smartifi and will be able to take automatic action to optimize WiFi network performance. Please let us know if you'd like to be an alpha user for the Smartifi+ product, we will let you know when the product becomes available.
