One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is AirMagnet Survey vs Ekahau Site Survey. One of the users on our site says about AirMagnet Survey, " [It] Provides a visual tool that we can show our clients that the wireless is either working or not working in an area. Another user says about Ekahau Site Survey, "Planning design allows us to provide faster quotes to the customer." In your opinion, which is better and why? Thanks! --Rhea
Usaid RashidI think Ekahau Site Survey is far better than Air magnet. It is easy to plan and have more options to do a survey than Air Magnet.
Mohammad KatmawiEkahau is much better than Airmagnet by now. Ekahau team keeps enhancing features and GUI interface. The software is providing more detailed view and is more easier to control and to collect data. Support is strong and they have always new webinars and training. Cisco and Aruba are recommending Ekahau since few years now.
Terry SawchukA question that will go on for quite some time. Both platforms have strengths and weaknesses and it come down to user preference and budget. With the introduction of the new Ekahau Sidekick I believe that Ekahau will have the edge. I am fortunate to use both and I do have a preference for using Ekahau for predictive modelling and I prefer AirMagnet for the actual surveys. Perhaps if I invest in obtaining the Sidekick it may prove itself and my full migration away from AirMagnet.
