Planning tools that make implementation a breeze
Planning is everything. Having a correct plan for the number and placement of access points required to deliver the needed coverage, performance, and user capacity is critical. To do this, you must have an accurate site survey. If the site survey is too optimistic (not enough access points), more equipment and cable pulls will be needed to fix the network, delaying implementation and driving up costs. If the site survey is too conservative (too many access points), money will be wasted on unneeded equipment and labor charges.
To better plan and verify that the Wi-Fi that the network meets the design criteria, our certified partners use the Xirrus Wi-Fi Designer (WFD). Wi-Fi Designer is the ultimate 802.11 wireless site survey solution, architected for Xirrus multi-radio Wireless Arrays and access points (AP). It combines the benefits of both active and predictive site surveys to plan the best-fit wireless network strategy for your environment. It minimizes infrastructure requirements while maximizing coverage and capacity. After installation, Wi-Fi Designer can verify the results of the implementation; easily ensuring the design criteria is met.
