With a built-in voice readiness verification system, AirMagnet Survey allow users to ensure that their network design is aligned with the recommendations of the phone vendor. This system also allow users to perform real-world voice surveys by validating and plotting phone call quality, capacity and other voice specific parameters at every location on a floor map helping to identify and minimize issues.
This single-click assessment of the WLAN network helps save time, effort and money by avoiding costly re-designs of the WLAN network and minimize IT troubleshooting costs. Users can generate a Pass/Fail report that enables an efficient hand-over of results of the survey to the installer or the end-customer.
AirMagnet Survey PRO includes a completely integrated reporting module that instantly creates custom outputs of site survey and simulations. Customized templates provide wireless 802.11 site survey users with flexibility by creating various reports based on project requirements. Users can customize reports further by including/excluding sections, adding in notes and customizing logos, headers and footers amongst many other customizable options. Reports can be saved in multiple formats, such as PDF, XML, HTML, Excel or Word.
WiFi environments are very dynamic and to guarantee the best performance for end-users, it is important to be able to verify changes in coverage and performance in the network. AirMagnet Surveys Diff View feature allows side-by-side visualization of differences between two separate surveys.
The Diff View feature helps display how a sites wireless environment has changed over time. This view is a great tool for System Integrators to drive repeat business of validating the coverage and performance of the network on an on-going basis. Likewise, users can use this feature to quickly compare AirMagnet Planner results with actual site survey results. This information can the be used to fine-tune the dl losses for the building and environmental conditions within Planner for more accurate planning.
AirMagnet Survey allows exporting of real-world survey data to Cisco Prime. This is critical for, not only calibrating Ciscos built-on planner modeling capabilities but also for specialized applications. For example, location services that mandate a calibration site survey for maximizing location accuracy for WLAN clients, or tags and VoWLAN servics that recommend the use of site surveys to validate real-world data versus the predictive capabilities of the infrastructure.
With its powerful design tools AirMagnet Survey PRO enables network professionals to predictively model the required changes, ensuring that problems found during the AirMapper site survey are fixed correctly, resulting in improved Wi-Fi network performance and connectivity.

To create a WiFi heatmap using NetSpot, all you need to do is enter the Survey Mode and follow the simple instructions. NetSpot will ask you to upload a map of the area you would like to survey, but you can also create one using the built-in mapping tool.
Then just walk from one place to the next to collect wireless site survey data and wait for NetSpot to automatically build a WiFi heatmap for you. The heatmap will tell you exactly where your wireless signal is the strongest and where it could be improved.
Intended for large-scale and local WiFi surveys alike, VisiWave Site Survey provides three effective methods for capturing data. You can either capture data one point at a time, continuously walk through the survey area, or use GPS positioning for outdoor surveys. Several customizable templates can be used to easily create custom WiFi signal strength and coverage reports, and the gathered data can also be viewed in Google Earth.
For example, a WiFi heat map showing the strength of a wireless signal is typically color-coded in green, orange, and red. Green parts represent areas of great signal strength, orange parts represent areas of average signal strength, and red parts represent areas of poor signal strength. Ideally, you want the entire surveyed area to be green, which can be achieved through various signal-optimization techniques and strategies.
AirMagnet Survey PRO users running AirMagnet Spectrum XT on the same machine can perform RF spectrum surveys or sweeps at the same time, as a passive or active site survey, reducing the walk-around time. Users also get the list of RF interference sources detected by AirMagnet Spectrum XT within AirMagnet Survey.
