We are living in an age of digital communication, where digital devices help us interact with people in a better and faster ways. We connect with the world using so many devices like laptops, smartphones, tablets, computers and others. But what connects all the devices with each other?
A strong Wi-fi connection is essential for digital communication. But when Wifi connectivity becomes poor, you don't know how to solve the issue just because you have no idea where the problem is. You wish you had software support or a tool that can measure or analyze strong or weak Wifi connectivity in your office or at home.
