How do I get historical analytics?
The easiest way to consistently gather historical analytics is with AI-based analytics platforms. This is for two reasons. One, you want analytics from every device connected to the network. Two, you need an optimized and reliable network for the best analytics.
Analytics from all devices

Gathering these analytics in real-time on a consistent basis is a massive undertaking that would monopolize IT teams’ time. With other team responsibilities, this doesn’t work. This is why teams and healthcare facilities benefit from analytics platforms.
AI-based platforms work 24/7 without pause and gather analytics just as easily for 50,000 devices as they do for 500. They process data much faster than humans, and can monitor the entire radio frequency (RF) environment rather than only managing a facility’s wired and wireless networks. The RF environment is where a WiFi network operates, and it consists of any nearby networks sharing the airspace as well as non-wireless devices like microwaves and medical equipment that can cause network interference. As this entire environment impacts the facility’s network, it needs to be factored into all analytics.
Not all analytics platforms provide historical data. When choosing a platform be sure to ask if historical analytics are continuous 24x7 versus time sliced which can miss critical data.
Optimized and reliable networks
The best analytics platform in the world can’t provide constant insights if the wireless and wired networks are consistently unreliable. Here’s how an AI-based platform can help healthcare facilities maintain strong WiFi performance.
Networks are dynamic. The RF environment in which they operate is constantly changing, and this means that IT teams require constant, complete visibility into the entire environment in order to ensure network optimization. This includes monitoring both WiFi spectrums, 2.4GHz and 5GHz, at all times.
As mentioned above, analytics platforms provide 24/7 monitoring so IT has instant access to the most up-to-date network information - as well as easily reviewable historical analytics, if the platform provides them. These real-time and historical analytics provide actionable insights for IT. This means that, in the case of a network issue, IT likely already has the information needed to identify and resolve the problem on hand. Rather than having to spend hours or days tracking down the root cause of the problem, IT can immediately move to resolution, restoring the network to optimum performance that much faster.
