    WiFi Network Scan at Mall

    I performed a scan of the free and open WiFi network in my mall in Nacka, Sweden (Stockholm).

    Out of 187 active connections at the time of scan, there were zero Nokia devices detected. Usually there's at least one.

    I run this network sniffer app, Fing, on large open WiFi networks to gauge device brand penetration.

    • I guess I'll put more stock in what I'm seeing from analytics like comScore, addDuplex, statCounte and others. Although not perfect, at least the analytics provide a good overall view that shows slow but steady growth. I won't spek for the way Swede's set up their phones, but most people walking around the malls around here, especially their Nokia's leave their wireless off. So.. I don't know, just seems like there is no way to draw any accurate conclusions from doing a network scan.

      • As far as this mall's open network goes, there are signs everywhere advertising free WiFi. The mall is quite new and very modern in an area of relative affluence. Search Nacka Forum Sweden for pics and info. Point is, we're reminded and encouraged to add the mall's WiFi SSID to our mobile devices when we're there. And it's a fast connection, too.

        There's useful data for retailers that comes with having mall customers attached to the open network. For example, the mall can track the foot traffic of those who are connected. With several WiFi base stations in use, triangulation accurately allows user tracking.

        Anyway, 187 connected users when I made my scan on a very light shopping day.

    • Back then, when Nokia and Ericsson were the biggest players, you couldn't find a single Ericsson everywhere. Hence this doesn't surprise me :)
