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 3D Coverage is a good feature that shows the signal propagation in three dimensions.The stability and feature set of the application are top notch and can't be matched.I find the high-quality Heatmap generation, multi-floor, and wire mapping features to be most valuable.It can speed up design.

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.
