This App uses Wi-Fi and location information for elements of our network, such as Wireless LAN Controller devices, to show, among other things, valuable information on the movement of devices within our organization. While Traffic is able to have a complete vision oriented to the own traffic of the network, Mobility goes one step further and offers a vision of the movement of devices within our organization.
Therefore, with Mobility we can know at all times the number of devices present in our organization, their fidelity, the length of time, the quality of the signal, etc. These data are presented in real time, but historical data can also be consulted, all transparently to the user of the red platform.
The figure below shows a graph of the evolution of the number of devices present in the different zones of an organization in the last hour.
Also, with the view of type Movements, it is possible to obtain a more oriented vision to the movement of devices between the different areas of our organization, which allows to have a greater visibility of which are the zones that more presence of devices have and which are the Relations with other areas. In this way, if necessary, it would be possible to use this information to better structure the layout of the different zones that make up the organization.
In the lower image the Movements view is shown, in which a list with the plants defined in that organization and values of the number of visitors that enter and leave the plant are represented on the left. On the right is a graph representing these exchanges of visitors between plants.
With the Map view you can get an overview of which are the most active areas of the organization in terms of number of devices or total visitors, in which areas visitors stay for longer, where there is a higher signal quality, to which places Visitors prefer to return, which areas are less empty, etc. This information can also be useful when valuing one area against another, for example, in cases where areas are leased to third parties, these values can be taken to establish a lease rate.
The image below shows the Map view of Mobility, composed of a heat map that represents the zones with the greatest number of devices or visitors in a particular organization.
Another interesting vision could be to have the possibility to know the permanence time of the devices in my organization or in some area that forms it, in such a way that it is possible to know which areas have devices for a longer time.
This is achieved with the Sessions view, which represents the average time spent by visitors throughout the day, being able to compare it with different periods of time and thus have an idea of the type of visitors that are.
The following screenshot shows the Mobility Sessions view, which displays visitor permanence values in a large city metro transport network.
By way of summary, below is part of the information that can be collected with redborder Mobility.
