Cisco has unveiled its new CleanAir technology which is designed to improve the performance of Wi-Fi networks.

The technology helps to clear the spectrum of RF interference from devices such as smartphones, Bluetooth devices, baby monitors, microwave ovens, wireless video cameras and cordless phones.

Cisco has integrated the CleanAir technology into access points with AP intelligence to identify, classify, locate and mitigate around the interference.

“Telekom Austria is using Cisco’s 3500 Series Access Points with CleanAir technology at Telekom Austria headquarters to identify disturbances in the radio frequency spectrum of the wireless LAN,” said Michael Schulteis, Expert Group Collaboration in Business Products & Solutions at Telekom Austria.

“We have located a number of devices causing interference in the 2.4GHz band, including Bluetooth and microwave ovens and can now localize the interferences in the Cisco Wireless Control System map.”

The new products will be available next month.
