Wi-Fi monitoring, is a part of network monitoring, is achieved by tracking and controlling the transfer of data within the network. This process is achieved by using certain function in the core of any network. Let us look at some of these functions:
- Access Control: This is the process of controlling what devices are allowed to use the network.
- Bandwidth Control: This is the process of controlling the speeds at which data is transferred in the network.
- Data Tracking: This is the process of tracking where and how much of data is being transferred within the network.
These are the 3 main functions of a network monitoring tool. Although most of the network routing devices already have in built functions to achieve these processes, they are at most times not as effective as tools developed for this specific purpose, as the in-built functions are not the core function of a routing device.
One such tool developed for the sole purpose of network monitoring is Netcut. This tool is the only tool in the market today, which goes down to the core of a network, and manipulates it at the core. What most other network monitoring tools do, is manipulate data transfer at the port level. A port level manipulation, in simple words is to control the flow of data by controlling the speed at which it is being transferred out of the starting point. Whereas net-cut goes down to the packet and arranges the packets to be transferred efficiently and an administrator could set how fast the data is being accessed by the network.
Other network monitoring tools aren’t able to track where the data is being sent to, or where it originates from, but Netcut keeps track of all that data, and gives the administrator the option of increasing or decreasing bandwidth to certain origins depending on their requirements.
Add the extra protection from Netcut, with the functions mentioned above, there is no dispute in Netcut’s claim that it is the best network monitoring tool in the market today.
