SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- AirMagnet, the leader in wireless LAN (WLAN) security and performance solutions, today announced AirMagnet Surveyor, a comprehensive site-survey tool for Wireless LAN deployments, combining all the critical components for pre-installation site surveying and ongoing provisioning of wireless 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g networks into one package. Unlike competitive solutions, AirMagnet Surveyor also includes active and passive surveying, flexible and detailed analysis, and the ability to simulate and view changes to the network. AirMagnet Surveyor is designed for the thousands of network installers and integrators, network managers and managed service providers tasked with deploying and managing ever-changing Wi-Fi networks.

"Surveyor, like all AirMagnet products, is intuitive and easy to use. The interface displays complex information in a logical and intuitive way. The automated simulation dramatically reduces the time and effort to do a real-world survey and interpret the results," said Ronald Shaul, national network manager, Smart City Networks. "When working in large public facilities, covering millions of square feet, we need to get the design right the first time. Surveyor is also useful to validate our network designs and verify coverage areas. Oftentimes we need to communicate engineering results to non-technical people and Surveyor helps us do that. Numbers and statistics cannot communicate nearly as well as a graphical coverage map. We have worked with other site survey products but have found them to either lack robust features or to be too complex and costly. Surveyor has the right combination of features and ease of use at a price point that makes it an excellent fit for our organization. Combined with AirMagnet's other solutions, we are armed to offer our wireless users with consistently fast and reliable coverage."
