We provide services in planning and redesigning wireless networks based on AirMagnet Survey Pro and AirMagnet Planner software.
AirMagnet software allows network professionals to design, deploy, and validate 802.11 wireless LANs for optimal performance, security, and compliance. It also calculates the ideal number, arrangement and configuration of access points needed to implement a wireless network. This solution goes beyond mere verification of radio coverage by charting the actual performance of the end user’s network in terms of connection speed, throughput and packet statistics. Survey PRO allows you to plan the optimal Wi-Fi installation right the first time, avoiding costly rework and user complaints.
Unconsidered planning of the implementation of a wireless network can lead to excessive expenses as well as dissatisfaction of end users. AirMagnet is a Wi-Fi planning tool that saves time, money and nerves by taking into account building materials, obstacles, access point configurations, antenna patterns and many other variables to provide a predicted signal map and Wi-Fi performance before building a network or a physical building.
- Planning and designing WLANs without deploying physical devices
- Generating a coverage map showing actual WLAN coverage, range, bandwidth, data rate, repetition, error rates, etc.
- Saves time by generating active, passive and spectrum reports from a single measurement
- Planning and design of WLANs (802.11a / b / g / n / ac) without physical arrangement of any access points (AP)
- Optimization of the number and layout of the AP, in order to maximize range and performance by simulating building material/obstructions and AP layout
- Reduced planning time thanks to fast import of walls from floor plans in CAD format
- Planning migration strategies as new users or technologies are introduced
Advanced WLAN modelling
AirMagnet Planner allows you to build a detailed model of any wireless environment – even before implementing the network or building. Simply load a location map and use the built-in library of walls, doors and windows to match the exact characteristics of the building. AirMagnet Planner allows you to add access points to any location and experiment to find the perfect place in the environment, depending on their requirements.
The software also provides independent settings for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radio frequencies. The planner can set AP channel, IP address, transmitting power, antenna type, orientation, height, and 802.11 specifications. After the planning session, a professional component list report can be generated, which contains information necessary for proper network installation. In addition to radio range information, it may include performance indicators such as data rates and bandwidth. Thanks to advanced automatic scheduling algorithms it is possible to automatically place access points on site. The software allows you to specify the minimum expected signal range, transmitting power, AP media type and more, while also marking areas of Wi-Fi coverage and areas where the AP cannot be placed.
AirMagnet Planner is part of the AirMagnet Survey PRO platform, providing a single, seamless application as one of the most complete approaches to design, deploy and continuously optimize wireless LANs for 802.11a / b / g / n / ac networks. With this integrated solution, AirMagnet Planner is used to accurately design WLANs by modeling building material/obstructions, 802.11 access points and visualizing the coverage on multiple floors, and then verifying the results with actual data.
Network survey 802.11
AirMagnet Survey is a wireless planning software that allows users to measure and evaluate actual wireless network parameters using any 802.11 adapter.
In addition to verifying radio range, the AirMagnet Survey shows the actual end user’s network performance in terms of bandwidth and PHY data rate, taking into account MIMO and other environmental situations / network configurations.
wireless network testing solution that shows the coverage of specific 802.11 parameters that affect performance, such as higher MCS schemes and wider channel and interference and legacy devices. The results are displayed as a complete Wi-Fi “thermal” map of all major RF and performance indicators for the end user. Accuracy, like in the real world, allows IT staff to accurately design and implement WLANs from the very beginning.
We help companies save time and money by reducing end-user complaints and reducing costly network redesigning
Collecting data in the real world and simulating change
The AirMagnet Survey’s wireless terrain survey allows the use of multiple adapters connected to the same computer, providing users with a solution that simulates different client tips. Having an accurate wireless tool shortens the time and effort of surveying the site, cuts costs by half and requires users to walk upstairs only once to collect all the required data. With this 802.11 Wireless Network Testing Tool, users can simulate various changes in the network and preview the effects. Options include changing transmission power of AP, channel, SSID settings and adding ambient noise. Users can also simulate moving access points to new locations and view the effect of adding additional access points. AirMagnet Survey allows users to create an automatic channel plan for access points to avoid disruption and over-allocation.
Automatic wall import
The automatic wall import feature reduces the time spent on preparing a floor plan for wireless deployment by quickly importing walls from floor plans in CAD format with just a few mouse clicks. Each CAD layer can be individually selected and assigned a unique damping type.
Visualize differences in range and performance over time
Wi-Fi networks are dynamic, so to ensure the best performance for end users, you can verify changes in network coverage and performance. The Diff View function in the AirMagnet Survey allows you to visualise the differences between two separate measurements. Diff View helps you see how the wireless environment has changed over time. It is an excellent tool for system integrators, providing the company with continuous verification of network coverage and performance. Similarly, users can use this feature to quickly compare AirMagnet Planner results with actual on-site measurements. This information can then be used to accurately adjust decibel losses for construction and environmental conditions in Planner for more accurate planning.
Network emulation 802.11
AirMagnet Planner allows to design new 802.11 networks and plan migration strategies for existing legacy networks, such as one-to-one replacement or phased introduction of newer devices to an older network.
The software allows planning for network or user performance without tedious physical AP testing. AirMagnet Planner provides unique range maps for WLAN bandwidth and other “thermal” maps for various parameters such as signal range, operating modes, MCS transmission speed, channel width and channel overlap. This feature allows users to predict the performance of WLANs anywhere on the floor, offering the best possible design that minimizes any patch-up after deployment. As AirMagnet Planner is part of the larger AirMagnet Survey PRO platform, users can compare planned 802.11 network results with post-implementation measurements.
Customized antenna design
AirMagnet Planner contains more than 300 of the most popular antenna designs for planning access points, including Cisco, Aruba, Ruckus Wireless, Extreme Networks, Meru, Fortinet, Huawei, Meraki, Mist and others. AirMagnet Planner also includes a built-in tool for creating custom antenna patterns, allowing users to recreate the properties of literally any available antenna.
When planning and designing wireless access for multi-storey buildings, reusing the same access points reduces hardware deployment costs. The ability to plan on multiple floors with AirMagnet Planner allows planners to reuse their equipment by visualizing coverage and performance with “thermal” maps on different floors, providing insight into coverage from adjacent floors. Plan better with visualizations of signal strength, data rate, operating mode, MCS rate, channel width, channel overlap between floors and others
AirMagnet Survey PRO includes a fully integrated reporting module that creates customized on-site measurement and simulation results. Customized templates provide measurers with flexibility by creating different reports based on project requirements. Users can further customize reports, including / excluding sections, adding notes and customizing logos, headers and footers among many other options. Reports can be saved in many formats, such as PDF, XML, HTML, Excel or Word. The reporting module includes report templates in the following languages: English, German, French, Arabic, Russian and Japanese, and allows the user to create templates in any other language
