What is most valuable?

I find the high-quality heatmap generation, multi-floor, and wire mapping features to be most valuable. We have also started using the mobile app and it is proving to save us time.

How has it helped my organization?

Before iBwave, we used a number of tools to collect and report RF data, and also Visio to create some of the visuals. iBwave replaced most/all of the other programs needed.

What needs improvement?

Areas of improvement would include more functionality in the mobile app, expanded reporting features, and some shortcut features.

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

I advise others to treat the cost as you would any tooling cost and use the monthly option as needed.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did use AirMagnet as our standard but have switched based on iBwave's ease of use and extended toolset.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate AirMagnet and Ekahau.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution provides us with the ability to obtain an exact equipment list report. This reduces the time needed to calculate the cost of the project.

What needs improvement?

There are many things that should be improved in this solution. For example, I would like to have more functionality to generate and delete walls, along with a good undo button for reversing the operations. I would like to be able to see… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I did not use another solution prior to this one.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

This is the only solution that I evaluated.

What do you think of iBwave Wi-Fi?

What is our primary use case?

Its primary use is building WiFi/DAS designs for customers.  Creating 3D modeling to better run propagation analysis.

How has it helped my organization?

iBwave has improved the efficiency of bidding on WiFi and DAS projects. The only tool for DAS/WiFi.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are being able to model venues closely to the real world. This helps when running propagation studies to see how signals will work in a real-world environment. Less guessing. 

What needs improvement?

More features to speed up the design process Macros for part IDs Hotkeys for more commands and parts It's still a slow process to model venues and even rename components.
