Share Article

Intelligraphics Inc., the industry leader in intelligent fast-roaming solutions and wireless security, today announced the release of its most advanced IGX Bloodhound Wi-Fi Sniffer/Injector, now with support for 802.11AC chipsets. The latest IGX Bloodhound Sniffer/Injector provides the highest performance, most in depth data capture and injection capability that todays’ Wi-Fi installations require by enabling precise control of their wireless network adding provisions for debugging, continuous monitoring and enhanced injection capabilities.

The 802.11AC Advanced Bloodhound Sniffer/Injector

"By leveraging the power of IGX sniffer and injector technologies, companies can potentially save lives, reduce threats to infrastructure, and improve security."

Intelligraphics' current solution is based on the newest 802.11ac technology and delivers a three-fold increase in performance by doubling channel bandwidth to 80 MHz, while ensuring backward compatibility and coexistence with legacy IEEE 802.11 devices in the 5-GHz band. The Advanced Bloodhound was designed for an X-86 platform using Linux Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS connected by a USB 3.0 interface and features a single Wi-Fi driver that can either act as a Wi-Fi sniffer/injector, or as a regular Wi-Fi driver.

This 802.11 ac based sniffer/injector allows law enforcement agencies to target and proactively surveil Wi-Fi communications in real-time so they can make informed decisions, both remotely and at the mission location. Agencies can more effectively identify and evaluate threats, prevent network casualties, and protect critical infrastructure. The addition of flow analysis can be combined with data analytics to enhance the ability of retailers, mall operators, entertainment, public transportation, and healthcare facilities to better understand how people enter, interact, move through physical spaces as well as improve their security.
