NHS Fife utilized a proof of concept from 7SIGNAL to trial Sapphire Eye on-site before making a purchasing decision. During the trial phase, wireless engineers used the 7SIGNAL platform to find and fix issues on access points (APs), RADIUS, DNS and DHCP servers. Sapphire Eye continuously runs active and passive tests on the network looking for problems with network services, WLAN configuration, radio frequency and co-channel interference, coverage and congestion.
