September 04, 2012 09:31 AMFluke Network's new AirMapper tool will help network admins tackle wireless support--as long as they use Android-based devices. But what about iOS devices?
February 01, 2011 10:00 AMWith almost 10,000 customers, including three-quarters of the Fortune 100, Fluke Networks' AirMagnet is releasing the latest version (9.0) of AirMagnet Enterprise, its wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) for managing and securing enterprise WLANs. Wireless communications is exploding, and security is a huge and growing problem. The company says that by the end of the year, 70 percent of all new worldwide voice and data client-to-LAN connections will be wireless, with 802.11n becoming the de facto standard (with 50 percent of unit shipment in 2011, 63 percent in 2012 and 75 percent by 2014, according to Infonetics).
January 31, 2011 07:05 PMThe tidal wave of mobile devices washing over the enterprise these days is on everybody's mind. We all have our own frames of reference and reasons to care about the running invasion of portable devices and the insatiable demand for networks in the air, and AirMagnet comes at it from the security angle with its new Enterprise 9.0. Wireless environments are dynamic enough to keep us on our toes when things are healthy and everyone is behaving themselves, but human nature is never far away, and so wireless security has to be kept conversationally front and center. The stakes are high in many market spaces that have wireless networks, and AirMagnet Enterprise 9.0 promises new capabilities and improved responsiveness for wireless customers that simply cannot afford to go unarmed.
January 24, 2011 07:00 AMKeeping a critical wireless network up and high-performing takes good design, sound policies and effective tools. Thankfully, Wi-Fi support tools have evolved along with wireless technology, and we have plenty of options to pick from. At the same time, some tools have steep learning curves and big price tags that keep them on the wish list, but out of reach. And then there are tools like those offered by TamoSoft, whose robust feature sets don't cost a fortune or require an engineering degree to glean value from.
May 18, 2010 11:00 AMVeriwave wants to shake up the 802.11 site survey world with Wave Deploy, a wireless assessment product that uses simulated wireless devices to measure and report on wireless networks performance. WaveDeploy can map the results of radio frequency monitoring onto a map or floor plan like any site survey tool, but it goes further by testing measuring layer 3+ issues like capacity, delay and jitter which focus on quality of experience. Compared to other site survey tools like Cisco Clean Air, which measures RF interference and manipulates the access points behavior, Wave Deploy is primarily targeted at point-in-time assessments.
October 28, 2009 11:58 AMWireless management and security vendor AirMagnet has unleashed the latest incarnation of their AirMagnet Enterprise product. Along with software enhancements, the product line now features 802.11n hardware sensors to scan the airwaves for security, configuration and interference issues on enterprise WLAN deployments. The software upgrade is free for existing customers with support agreements. Upgrade pricing is available on the new hardware.
