What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the predictive survey. The antennas' RF patterns are reflected correctly on the drawing when preparing predictive heat maps.

How has it helped my organization?

The predictive survey creates heat maps which are accurate and save a lot of time. The results are accurate enough to rely on when considering quantities and locations of… more»

What needs improvement?

The user interface needs a lot of improvement. The auto-placement of access points is not accurate. User interface: The UI is missing lots of simple features like multiple… more»

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

For technical support, you need an annual license, but it is not worth it.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used Ekahau, as per a client request. I started using AirMagnet afterwards.

What other advice do I have?

If you are going to do predictive surveys, then doing tests and passive site surveys to check wall attenuation is a must. You cannot depend on the default values of… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I evaluated Ekahau.

What is most valuable?

Spectrum XT running at the same time during survey mode: It allows me to investigate after the survey to see what was causing the interference and mitigate it before… more»

How has it helped my organization?

AirMagnet allows our organization to relatively quickly provide our customers with a budgetary solution that meets their business needs.

What needs improvement?

The planner function would be better if there was the ability to change the antenna orientation for external antenna, e.g., tilt angle. The multi-floor alignment tool is… more»

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

The MAJOR concern that I have with AirMagnet is the cost of the Gold Support renewal. It is very costly compared to Ekahau.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

AirMagnet was the first product that we have used since day one. We also use Ekahau in our tool kit.

What other advice do I have?

The product is very good and I highly recommend it, especially if you have to present the survey finding to clients. This is an absolutely needed tool for the WLAN… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this product, I did not evaluate other options; AirMagnet at that time was the only product available.

What is most valuable?

The interactive mapping tool: If you have a map, it'll scale the map to be accurate. You literally just click where you are as you are walking. It's very simple. Then, from that mapping, you can run… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We survey hospitals, schools and any other business that would like a survey. We sell our service and it creates another avenue for revenue.

What needs improvement?

If you have an older version of Air Magnet get caught up. It use to crash a lot. Version 9.1 is great. It’ll run all day with no issues (we always restart at lunch time). The only main improvement… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't have a previous solution.

What other advice do I have?

My biggest complaint is their training shouldn't be so expensive. I personally think they should have online videos of free training and if you want to have a need for more complex training then pay… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The only reason we use this software is because the people that hire us to do the surveys require the software. We then found other ways to create revenue with it since it is very expensive.

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

We used Ekahau Site Survey. It is also a good quality product, but they are still growing and have a lot of bugs. These guys try to do their best and it looks like they… more»
