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.

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.

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

I am a 5-year user of AirMagnet Survey Pro and Spectrum-XT.  We currently own 6 Survey Pro Licenses I have utilized demos of Ekahau, but with the project start to delivery passing the 30-day window, I need to decide between these two solutions. It is tough to get a full handle on whether we would want to switch over to Ekahau. I would love an independent comparison of features and pros and c...

I see no reason to switch over Ekahau, what I would like to know is if the customer already has a Master Care support from NetScout in order to get updated software every time they release a new update.

AirMagnet & Ekahau are great tools in the market, but yet each environment is different and unique. Never had the luxury to test both of the programs side by side on multiple sites. I am more familiar with Ekahau, learning from trial, and error, after being trained and a lot of reading material. I have worked with multiple vendors who have stated that each site is different.

I work for Ekahau, we focus on visualizing, planning and making site survey's easy for partners and end users. We work with the Top Wi-Fi vendors including Cisco, Aruba, Ruckus, Huawei and I have never heard anyone tell me that they think Air Magnet is a better tool for any of these purposes. Hope that helps.
