Ekahau Site Survey Pros

NH
Primary Wireless Project Manager at a government with 10,001+ employees
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.

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.

I have found the most valuable feature is the RF interference and integration capabilities.

Ekahau lets you create heat maps without doing the initial survey. It makes the task easier.

Ekahau Site Survey Cons

NH
Primary Wireless Project Manager at a government with 10,001+ employees
In all of our buildings, whenever we deploy wireless access points, we also have to deploy wireless intrusion detections. The Ekahau Site Survey tool doesn't allow us to differentiate between the access point and the intrusion detection device. That's because they're the same devices, but they're configured differently for the type of usage. That's one area that I would ask them to improve. They should allow the identification of access points versus wireless intrusion detection.

Sometimes there is a cancellation between two signals that the solution is not able to monitor correctly, this could improve in the future.

Most features are there, but the network adapter support should be better. Ekahau should support all laptops and versions. There's an issue with the driver too.
