Measure, visualize and understand WLAN clients
AirMagnet released n (including the AirMagnet Planner module) and AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO 9.0. Both products now include the company’s new multi-adapter solution, which delivers dramatic enhancements to the WLAN designing and troubleshooting process by going beyond just collecting greater amounts of data, to integrating that data into features that help speed the performance and accuracy of site surveys, and deliver client roaming analysis to ensure wireless continuity.
AirMagnet Survey PRO allows an organization to perform simultaneous multiple surveys – to reduce time and cost associated with WLAN design and deployment – by leveraging the visualization of the “client experience” with active surveys, and also includes the new WLAN throughput coverage mapping capability.
It also offers customized report templates to meet project requirements – a business component for installers, integrators and services provides that need to deliver customized WLAN design recommendations.
AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO offers WLAN roaming analysis that leverages the multi-adapter capability to allow users to monitor every client roaming event in the network and provide details on the success and failure of client device roams and the overall impact of roaming on the client experience and performance.
This root-cause analysis of roaming issues helps mitigate reoccurrences of roaming associated problems in the future as users are provided with the precise reasons for the inefficient client roaming. Along with the roaming functionality, AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO also offers a new wireless dashboard that focuses on top issues requiring immediate attention, helping to ensure maximum network security and performance, while still giving easy drill-down analysis on other issues that require deeper investigation.
AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer addresses one of the most common IT staffer complaints with WLAN monitoring – “why isn’t there a single-click technique for testing connectivity and application performance?” Now there is, with a new one-touch connection audit with unique, on-the-spot verification for network connectivity and application performance.
In addition to these new capabilities, both products now include support for 64-bit OS on Windows 7 PCs with any of the supported 802.11a/b/g/n USB adapters.
