Wireless networks abound around us, in particular in urban environments. Most portable devices provide a list of visited wireless networks and our devices connect to some of them, based on several aspects, such as signal quality.
WiRank is a tool that allows a citizen to be connected to its preferred networks, from the list of available wireless networks. The preference is based on a series of parameters, such as the number of visits.
WiRank provides a seamless way for the citizen to keep its preferred connections, thus assisting handovers.
If there are no available wireless networks, WiRank disables the regular wireless scanning process, and activates it again when there is some likelihood of the device being in the vicinity of a new preferred network.
A summary of the features available on the Basic version:
- Automatic management of wireless networks based on user preference;
- Wireless interface management based on learnt history concerning visit to a known network
- Location (GPS coordinates) of visited networks
