Fluke Networks has announced a new version of the AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO offering new 802.11ac features to help organizations troubleshoot migration or co-existence path to the new 802.11ac technology and solve any 802.11ac problems in the network. With new toolkits, and the industry’s only 3×3 portable capture and analysis capability, businesses can now troubleshoot 802.11ac networks in an accurate, faster, and more cost effective way with the new AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO version 11.0.
Fluke Networks is the only vendor to provide a portable analysis tool to support passive troubleshooting and analysis of enterprise and carrier-grade 3×3 802.11ac APs. Using the new Fluke Networks 802.11ac 3×3 wireless adapter or an Apple MacBook Pro (with built-in 802.11ac 3×3 adapter) along with the AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO, IT teams won’t miss any traffic, and they can solve any problem in an 11ac network.
New 802.11ac features include:
Optimizing the migration/co-existence path to 802.11ac:
AirMagnet Survey PRO’s planning capabilities allow wireless engineers to quickly and easily design an 802.11ac network, including determining the number of APs needed, location, and configuration settings, before rolling out any new infrastructure. This allows IT to estimate budgets before making investments, solidify migration strategies, and ease the potential transition pains.
Users can see how they can reuse existing Ethernet and power infrastructure for the new APs, visualize impact of introducing new 802.11ac APs in performance-hungry locations, and then measure and validate true performance delivery (instead of relying on estimates).
AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO provides users a unique toolkit to not only predict the capacity readiness of the network for the new influx of 11ac APs and clients, but also to identify the root cause of poor connectivity performance for any conversation in the network.
Industry-first 3×3 802.11ac portable analysis tool: Fluke Networks is the only vendor to provide a portable analysis tool to support monitoring and troubleshooting enterprise and carrier-grade 3×3 802.11ac APs. Using the new Fluke Networks 802.11ac 3×3 capture and analysis wireless adapter (or the Apple MacBook Pro’s built-in 802.11ac 3×3 adapter) with the AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO, IT teams won’t miss any traffic and can solve any problem in an 11ac network.
Organizations can also avoid the systemic issues associated with troubleshooting from a fixed AP in the ceiling or from providing only a single-sided AP-centric view for performance measurements. They can also use the tool’s ability to locate threats, classify them and record the details of unauthorized conversations as forensic evidence.
AirMagnet Survey PRO/Planner will be available later this month, and AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO will be available in Q4 2014.
