If you have the budget for it, this is a very good product. We've been doing WiFi for quite a long time and we didn't do the online training or use the guides. For anyone new to the solution, it's worth spending a couple of hours with the online help that's available. The only downfall is the price so I rate this solution a nine out of 10.

I would say that you need to decide what it is you want to do. If you just need to do validation surveys or predictive surveys, Ekahau is fine. I feel like though, if you're going to go out and do an AP on a stick, an actual survey, Ekahau is not as good as AirMagnet in that regard, so you need to know what your use case will be. I would rate this solution as a seven out of ten.

I rate Ekahau Site Survey eight out of 10. Go for it if you can afford it.

I would highly recommend going to the Ekahau training class. They have a class to train you on how to do surveys. I would rate it a 10 out of 10 because as a project manager doing wireless surveys, it gives me all the tools and access that I need to be able to conduct a proper survey. The only thing that it requires is the ability to differentiate between an access point and a wireless intrusion detection device.

Overall, we're pretty happy with it. One reason why we bought Ekahau was that one of our major customers happen to use Ekahau at a large Telco. They just don't have a lot of operators that can run it, and when we provide reports to them, it is for them to read and research, and things like that. I work closely with the guy who does all the CAD work. He imports the CAD files and sets everything up, and he seems to be happy with that aspect of it. He had just that one issue with service support. So, based on that, I would rate it a nine out of 10.

This is a professional tool. You have to know how to use it. Used in conjunction with the Ekahau Pro software and a professional wireless engineer, this tool will make conducting a wireless site survey a breeze.

It is a good product but support needs to speed up responses. It takes 24-48 hours to get a simple response. You pay $1389 per year for support and you are had-pressed to get timely answers.

Hello Peers,  I am a Project Manager at a medium-sized tech services company. I am currently researching the best network modeling tool. Which tool is better: NetAlly AirMagnet Survey Pro with Aircheck-G3 or Ekahau Connect? Which tool has better designing and troubleshooting features? Thank you.

The ability to perform dual-band spectrum analysis while conducting the standard WiFi site survey is a tremendous time saver.
