Trilithic Introduces the Award Winning 802 AWE – Advanced Wireless Test Set

Award Winning 802 AWE

What is the 802 AWE Advanced Wireless Test Set?

The new 802 AWE™ Advanced Wireless Test Set from Trilithic provides you with a total end-to-end testing solution for all of your network installation, verification and troubleshooting needs.

The 802 AWE offers a superior solution for proactive troubleshooting of wired and wireless networks and is the most cost effective testing tool available for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless networks.

With Wi-Fi (a/b/g/n/ac*), ZigBee, Blue­tooth and Ethernet all built-in to one device you can quickly and easily analyze overlaps in wireless channel broadcasts to prevent interference between Wi-Fi and ZigBee wireless home security & automa­tion networks.

How does the 802 AWE help cable engineers reduce operational expenses?

The new 802 AWE was designed from scratch to increase user efficiency all the while reducing operational equipment cost and time to troubleshoot. This all in one device allows the technician to quickly and easily diagnose wireless issues that may have been hidden or hard to find due to a lack of features in current CPE equipment or current wireless testing devices.

  • In organizations where budgets are limited and several technicians share three or four testing devices among themselves, the low price of the 802 AWE allows you to outfit more technicians with their own gear while reducing the amount of time spent meeting up to swap out gear from one tech to another.
  • With Wi-Fi (a/b/g/n), ZigBee, Bluetooth and Ethernet all in one device, providers now have the ability to purchase a single device that covers all of the tech’s testing needs allowing them to reduce the number of additional devices that they must carry during the normal workday.
  • Carrying fewer devices not only reduces capital investment in equipment, but it also allows the technician to become more efficient by reducing his workload to one device instead of many. This increased efficiency will allow the technician to be trained quicker, complete more jobs in the same amount of time and over time decrease the operational cost for each job.

Another cost saving feature of the 802 AWE is its easy-to-use color interface with simple icon based navigation. This user interface is designed to look and feel like many modern smart devices which reduce the amount of time it takes for techs to become familiar with the device. This quick learning process reduces the amount of time needed to train technicians, roll out the 802 AWE to your workforce and start seeing results in the field.

Your techs will be able to quickly and easily resolve many problems before they are encountered by proactive testing for wireless issues during installs. This type of proactive testing can help to ensure the stability of your customer’s wireless networks while maximizing their online experience. In turn, providing this type of service during an installation can lead to a higher quality of service, increased customer satisfaction and most importantly a reduction in the number of repeat truck rolls.


What Measurements are supported by the 802 AWE?

The easy-to-use icon navigation will reduce the amount of time it takes for techs to become familiar with the 802 AWE. The short learning curve will help technicians get to work faster, become more efficient and have confidence in their testing results.
