AirMagnet Channel SimulatorWi-Fi devices have expanded their channel widths (802.11n devices are capable of supporting either 20MHz or 40MHz channels. 11ac Wave-1 devices support 20, 40, and 80MHz channels, while 11ac Wave-2 devices support 20, 40, 80, and 160MHz channels), but just because you can use 80MHz and 160MHz wide channels doesn't mean you should. Visualizing what channels are available get tricky quickly.
Use this channel simulator to see how channels overlap in 2.4GHz or how wider channels at 5GHz impact your implementation choices.
Note: At the same time the FCC has been implementing changes to the available channel bandwidth. This channel simulator shows the available license-free spectrum since the FCC Report & Order as a simple way to visualize and understand what frequencies are available for use.
