Ekahau lets you create heat maps without doing the initial survey. It makes the task easier.
There are some survey tools that are a little easier to use, but the benefit of using the Ekahau is that it is very configurable. If you go into a building that has solid cement walls, instead of traditional walls, you can configure it for that. It is much more configurable than the other ones.
The heat maps are quite good, and some features are easy to use.
Customer service is great.
RedSeal integrates the network and gives us a visual or graphical overview of our network. If an organization is geographically dispersed, for instance, with one office in Canada and one office in the Philippines, the whole network, including all devices, is integrated into RedSeal, and you can see from where the traffic is going in and out.
iBwave Wi-Fi's tech support is great. They pick up their phones. I have no complaints.
The 3D Coverage is a good feature that shows the signal propagation in three dimensions.
It is scalable from the beginning. It is a product that you can scale upwards whenever you want.
It is easy to set up.
