The First Professional Survey App for iPad Makes Ekahau Connect a Game-Changer for Wi-Fi Professionals

RESTON, VA, April 9th, 2019 — Ekahau, the global leader in Wi-Fi network design solutions, today announced the launch of Ekahau Connect, a suite of integrated Wi-Fi tools that enable Wi-Fi professionals to design, optimize and troubleshoot any Wi-Fi network faster and easier than ever before.

The solution allows seamless collaboration between on-site IT personnel, who are charged with keeping Wi-Fi running smoothly, and the Wi-Fi expert, who is often overloaded with managing multiple projects and sites and travelling extensively.

Ekahau Connect builds on the success of Ekahau Pro (formerly Ekahau Site Survey) and Ekahau Sidekick. It introduces a number of new and revolutionary capabilities designed to make Wi-Fi professionals faster and more productive.

“Ekahau Connect allows me to create a force multiplier and actually do more with fewer resources” said Jonathan Davis, Wireless Engineer, Municipal Government Customer.

“Ekahau Connect is more than a portfolio of products – it’s an integrated solution that allows Wi-Fi Pros to maximize their productivity, whether in the back office planning new networks or conducting site surveys in the field.” said Mika Hakala, Ekahau EVP of Product and Strategy. “The new and improved Ekahau Pro 10 and Ekahau Sidekick are still at the heart of this solution. What’s new, however, is game-changing.”

The best gets better

Ekahau Pro gets even better with a number of improvements such as automatic interference detection, automatic access point detection and placement, and support for performing 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) site surveys when combined with Ekahau Sidekick. The user interface has also been completely rebuilt to deliver a smoother and easier user experience.

Get it right the first time

Ekahau Connect was created to help Wi-Fi professionals do their job better and faster and to design reliable Wi-Fi networks right the first time. With the ability to quickly and easily troubleshoot problems immediately, there is no need to fly in an expert and wait days to diagnose and fix critical Wi-Fi issues that wreak havoc within hotels, corporate offices, hospitals and warehouses.

The new products introduced today as part of Ekahau Connect include:

Ekahau Survey for iPad is the first professional grade Wi-Fi site survey tool for the iPad, making the solution 70% lighter than using a laptop and reducing breaks previously needed to charge up the device. It makes Wi-Fi experts more effective when performing site surveys, and the unprecedented ease-of-use allows anyone to collect professional Wi-Fi measurements.

“The new iPad app, the integration with the iPad app, the use of the Sidekick, the new cloud feature, the ability to capture packets. Ekahau Connect is a great product” said Jason Bashara, Sr. Network Engineer (Mobility), Presidio.

The entire Ekahau Connect Suite Includes:

Ekahau Pro – The tool that sets the industry standard for designing, analyzing, optimizing and troubleshooting Wi-Fi Networks
(Previously known as Ekahau Site Survey Pro)
