More AirMagnet Survey Pros »

"I don't handle the software that much. I'll do some of the testing with our CTO. It is primarily him and I. He has commented before that he likes the fact that with two licenses, we can set it up so that when we're on a large facility, he can see where I am and I can see where he is. That's for sure is very handy in large venues.""The planning feature is useful because it's very affordable.""I have found the most valuable feature is the RF interference and integration capabilities.""We are satisfied with the way this product is working."

Cons
"The surveying features are in need of improvement, along with general usability.""It'd be nice if it was cheaper, however, you get value for your money."

More AirMagnet Survey Cons »

"Sometimes there is a cancellation between two signals that the solution is not able to monitor correctly, this could improve in the future.""Our CTO was not real happy with their support.""The support is an area in need of improvement.""The GPS feature could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This product is very expensive."

More AirMagnet Survey Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licenses are a little pricey compared to iBwave, etc.""The pricing could be lower because the Huawei radial planning is free for the partner. When I asked my boss about buying Ekahau and the USB key, it was complicated because of the high cost, which is €5,000.""The solution is priced fairly for the features that you receive."
