The AirMagnet Value Proposition

Why you will choose the AirMagnet Laptop Analyzer, RF Spectrum Analyzer and SurveyPro Site-Survey Tool:

If you're an 802.11 wireless LAN support engineer or part of a company's IT staff responsible for an 802.11 WLAN there are two analysis and troubleshooting tools that you absolutely must have: an 802.11 packet-level analyzer and an RF spectrum analyzer. The 802.11 packet-level analyzer captures and decodes the contents of transmitted data, management, and control packets giving the engineer a view into the operational behavior, configuration, and data carrying aspects of the WLAN. The RF spectrum analyzer measures and records signal energy levels and how they vary and interact at different frequencies in the transmission band. This gives the engineer a view of the signal and noise in the environment allowing an analysis of signal strength, signal-to-noise ratio, carrier-to-interference ratio, and the impact of signal reflection, refraction, diffraction, diffusion, attenuation, and general scattering.

You will choose the AirMagnet Laptop Analyzer because you need a packet-level analyzer with a wide range of features. You will choose the AirMagnet Spectrum Analyzer because you need to assess noise, interference, and the RF environment using an RF spectrum analyzer.

If your requirements include post-installation verification and validation of proper signal coverage then the AirMagnet SurveyPro tool will allow you to easily create visual "heat maps" of signal coverage, noise, coverage zones, and a variety of verification measurements and report presentations.

How you will decide that AirMagnet provides the best solution:

AirMagnet Laptop Analyzer is the industry's most popular tool for auditing and troubleshooting enterprise Wi-Fi networks. It is the de-facto standard for WLAN survey, analysis, and troubleshooting. The user interface is extensive but well laid-out and the features are intuitive. The key deciding factors in favor of an AirMagnet solution are the scope and depth of analysis and report features (that go far beyond the competitors) and the seamless integration between packet-level analysis, RF spectrum analysis, and post-installation verification surveys that come from the integration of AirMagnet Laptop Analyzer, AirMagnet Spectrum Analyzer, and AirMagnet SurveyPro applications.

Where you will see the greatest value with AirMagnet:

When you need a packet-level analyzer to troubleshoot a problem or assess WLAN behavior there is no other tool that you can use to address the issue. When you need an RF spectrum analyzer to assess environmental electromagnetic characteristics there is no other tool that you can use to address the issue. When you need to perform a post-installation verification and you need to be able to generate coverage "heat maps" then you must have a survey tool. In all three situations you'll see that the features and capabilities of the AirMagnet product line are absolutely top-of-the-line. You'll have the right tool for the job and your investment will be money well spent.

When you are ready to buy a/an AirMagnet solution:

Connect802 intimately understands the applications for AirMagnet products because when Connect802 dispatches an RF engineer to an on-site engagement they're using AirMagnet products to perform their work. When you buy AirMagnet products from Connect802 you're not just buying from a distribution warehouse - you're buying from someone who, just like you, demands the right tools for WLAN design, support, and troubleshooting.

Connect802 is an authorized equipment and software reseller.

Also use Find Tool to align signals between antennas to quickly optimize reception in line-of-sight bridging.

Lockdown Security Policies
AirMagnet Laptop Analyzer enables you to set detailed security policies for all devices in your network. Designate your encryption and authentication methods then monitor your wireless LAN to check all devices for compliance with those policies. Also validate that the encryption methods themselves function correctly over the WLAN. Establish an even higher level of organized security by designating a list of approved APs for client access, and monitoring for exposed wireless stations, ad-hoc devices, and other vulnerabilities.

Perform Live, Interactive Network Tests
In addition to the issues that the AirMagnet Laptop Analyzer automatically locates for you, a suite of active troubleshooting tools are available at your fingertips to help you quickly pinpoint network problems - 802.11n mis-configurations, RF interferences, traffic/infrastructure overloads, hardware failures, connectivity issues and more. Test connections with traditional tools such as DHCP, ping, and traceroute or use AirMagnet's Diagnostic Tool to view the step-by-step progress of a connection between a client and AP to pinpoint exactly where the process has broken down. Run AP performance tests to identify mismatched settings in the network, coverage, multi-path interference, jitter and roaming. The WLAN Throughput Simulator and the Device Throughput Calculator tools help users make that critical purchase decision on how they can phase 802.11n devices into their existing 802.11a/b/g network.

Monitor 802.11n Networks
AirMagnet Laptop Laptop Analyzer identifies and classifies all 802.11n capable devices in the network (including differentiating between standards-compliant and pre-standard 802.11n devices).

Every enterprise must use this tool before purchasing their 802.11n APs to understand the capabilities and limitations for their access points network performance.

WLAN Throughput Simulator tool captures the existing infrastructure environment and calculates the network throughput and overhead under user-specified conditions. It also allows the simulation of new APs or stations with specific capabilities and visualization of the impact on performance. Every enterprise must use this tool before making that decision to introducing 802.11n devices in their network.
Efficiency and Analysis tools to help users get the maximum value out of their 802.11n infrastructure, by analyzing conversations between the AP and station and pin-pointing areas where the 802.11n high throughput options are not being well used. The tools also go further and provide solutions on fixing those areas. AirMagnet Laptop integrates with Iperf - a free, open-source software tool for network performance analysis - to analyze uplink and downlink network performance including bandwidth, throughput, 20/40 MHz traffic, data rates, etc.

Perform Continual Wi-Fi Interference Analysis
Interference can stem from a variety of sources including competition from other Wi-Fi devices, so-called "hidden nodes" in the network, and even non-802.11 wireless devices. The Laptop Analyzer's Interference Page tracks all these components of interference and plainly displays them by channel. This enables you to quickly see the impact of competing Wi-Fi devices, identify any hidden nodes affecting the channel, and track noise in the RF environment. Laptop PRO users can also integrate with the AirMagnet Spectrum Analyzer* to identify non-802.11 sources of interference for even deeper Layer 1 analysis.
