With the release of Chanalyzer 5, the Chanalyzer 4/Pro/Lab family of products have reached their end-of-life, and are no longer supported or maintained by MetaGeek. We strongly recommend upgrading to Chanalyzer 5.
What's new in Chanalyzer 5?
Did you know that Chanalyzer 4 even had recording navigation? Yeah, it wasn't obvious or easy to use. Waterfall Navigation comes standard in Chanalyzer 5, and makes spotting interference and fast-forwarding to it simple and easy.
Dual-Band (Double Rainbow) Mode
Double rainbow! All the way! With Chanalyzer 5, you no longer need to scan an environment twice if you want to get both 2.4 and 5 GHz readings. With a Wi-Spy DBx, you can view and record both the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands at the same time.
With a Wi-Spy DBx and any dual-band WiFi adapter, Chanalyzer 5 fully supports visualizing 802.11ac networks.
Can't find that old wireless video camera or analog cordless phone that is destroying your network? Track down and eliminate non-WiFi interference quickly with Device Finder in Chanalyzer 5. Add a Device Finder Directional Antenna for increased speed and accuracy.
The Chanalyzer 5 upgrade also includes one year of the MetaCare Assurance Plan, which entitles you to free software updates including bug fixes, minor feature updates, major enhancements, and more. When MetaCare runs out, the software will keep working, and it can be extended later on to keep receiving updates.
But Wait! There's More!
Other new features include:
- Outdoor color scheme for visibility in bright environments
- Automatic OUI updates for identifying AP vendors
- Session Manager for splitting up and organizing recordings
- Windows 10 support for... wait, what happened to Windows 9!?
- Waterfall Notes to track observations in recordings
- Network Grouping to view your network at a glance
- Cisco and Aruba AP names in network list
- Give AP's custom names, so you can keep track of them
- Automatic session splitting, to make long recordings easy to read
For a limited time, we have a discounted upgrade path for Chanalyzer 4, Chanalyzer Pro, and Chanalyzer Lab users. For upgrade options, contact our support team.
