AirMagnet Survey Review

Has the capability to perform roaming among APs in many different ways.

What is most valuable?

WiFi planning, RF measurements and roaming capability.

The feature of AirMagnet to build predictions is awesome, we can simulate the APs placement without the need to go to the installation place. The many ways to measure the RF environment with AirMagnet are great. The software has the capability to perform roaming among APs in many different ways, not all survey software do that.

How has it helped my organization?

Now we can attend the expectations of our clients, about indoor and outdoor site surveys.

What needs improvement?

  • Interface layout - I think for a better user experience, the software GUI layout could be more elaborate, just for simplicity.
  • PDF file support - the current software version doesn’t support PDF files, and PDF is a very common format to ignore it.

For how long have I used the solution?

3 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Yes, sometimes the radios disappear, and then show up again.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Some WiFi devices vendors are not present.

How is customer service and technical support?

Good technical support.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Yes, a simple free WiFi tool. We switched for the tech support and richer features.

How was the initial setup?

Easy, they have plenty of documentation.

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

The pricing and licensing are expensive, but for us, it was fair.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, the Ekahau solution, but it is more expensive, and in our point of view delivers the same functionalities.

What other advice do I have?

This is a very good product.
