Moving Hotspot Locations
If you are thinking of moving the Hotspot from one location to another but don’t want to Assert Location, simply plug in the Hotspot at the new location and run Discovery Mode. You can see what the potential reach can be without asserting.
Upgrading an Antenna
If you are wondering if a new antenna you bought is better than another, run Discovery Mode using the old antenna, and run it again with the new antenna. Compare Discovery Session results to see who wins out.
Indoor vs Outdoor
Wondering if an outdoor Hotspot setup will be better than an indoor setup but not yet ready to buy a rig? Set up the Hotspot outside for a Discovery Mode session and compare if it’s any better or worse.
Room to Room
Lots of environmental objects can interfere with Proof-of-Coverage packets — trees, buildings, metal objects outside, furniture, and even building materials within your walls. You may want to optimize which room you place your Hotspot in, depending on those factors. You may also find that one side of your location can reach more Hotspots than another. Discovery Mode can help with this.
Hotspot vs Hotspot
If you’re fortunate enough to have more than one Hotspot, you can certainly put them up head-to-head. May the best performing Hotspot win!
