On the SuperPod detail screen in the app, it reports the current SuperPod Health. SuperPod health describes the connection quality of the link between this SuperPod and its immediate parent SuperPod.
SuperPod health takes into account the WiFi signal strength, the speed of data transmission, and available airtime to send and receive data from the upstream connected SuperPod.
When your SuperPod is moved, Plume recalculates the SuperPod health to keep this information current. SuperPod health ranges from Excellent to Poor and is described below.
SuperPod has a stellar connection to the upstream SuperPod. The WiFi environment is wide open for communications between the SuperPods. All applications should run flawlessly.
The connection to the upstream SuperPod is okay. All applications on the connected devices should run without any major impairments. Some initial buffering may happen for very high-speed applications such as 4K video streaming
The connection to the upstream SuperPod is not ideal for real time applications or high throughput applications, like 4K video streaming but should be good enough for email and browsing activities.
The SuperPod is not able to communicate well with the upstream connected SuperPod. It may be too far from it or large amounts of interference may exist in its current location. Connected IoT devices or downstream SuperPods and their connected IoT devices may continue to work, but real-time applications such as video conferencing or streaming may suffer.
