AirMagnet Survey Review

Good spectrum analysis and reporting features, but the antenna options could be improved and the price reduced

What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant and I work with this product at a high level. It is used for spectrum analysis and wireless surveying.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the survey, spectrum analysis, and reporting. 

What needs improvement?

The surveying features are in need of improvement, along with general usability. For example, they should import functions from other products that make things easier from a planner's point of view.

The antenna options should be enhanced.

It takes a little while to render the coverage maps.

The price could be lower.

The updates are few and far between, so they should release them more regularly.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using AirMagnet Survey for ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Overall, the stability is not too bad.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is a little bit slow to respond. I would say that they are about average.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This product is very expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Our license is coming up for renewal and we're planning to have a close look at Ekahau. We will be comparing the two and possibly look to change.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering AirMagnet is to have a look at Ekahau Survey, as well. This is something that we plan on doing before our next renewal.

I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
