We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
It is reliable and easy to use (user-friendly). The heat mapping, passive network surveying, and doing the heat mapping of a building's wireless network allows me to see what level of coverage an area has.The benefit is with the ease of use of the software, I am able to show the customer, "Here is what your wireless coverage looks like." It is set up in a fashion that non-technical people can understand it.Clear and easy to use maps.The most valuable feature is the predictive survey. The antennas' RF patterns are reflected correctly on the drawing when preparing predictive heat maps.

Cons
Printouts are JPEG printouts. The AirMagnet software is proprietary. I can't send my customers a file, because it is AirMagnet file, even for building projects. I can only send JPEGs or screenshots of heat maps.The user interface needs a lot of improvement. The auto-placement of access points is not accurate.

This solution is not cheap. If you only need an occasional site survey, you are better off contracting a wireless engineering professional that has one.
