RollOut: Ekahau's Site Survey 2.2
August 25, 2006
Good wireless networks don't just happen. Proper access point placement and knowledge of the spaces to be covered are critical, and freebie tools are rarely good enough for enterprise planning. In contrast, Ekahau's Site Survey 2.2 provides an effective suite of surveying and planning tools that demystifies the deployment and support of Wi-Fi networks.
The latest Site Survey scales better than previous versions, supporting significantly larger planning maps with AP plotting and simulated displays that are much faster on the draw. The same map with dozens of APs opens several seconds faster for 2.2 than it did in earlier versions. The product now supports several new wireless adapters, reflecting the ever-growing crop of cards available. And special attention has been given to optimizing scan speeds in the many eligible Atheros-based NICs likely to be used with the product.
