Ekahau Site Survey v8.7.0 Released

March 15th, 2017 by Sam Cobley

Yesterday saw the release of a new version of Ekahau Site Survey, taking the software to version 8.7.0. The highlights of the new version are:

Copy & paste Wi-Fi planning (predictive design) elements: APs, walls, floor alignment points, etc.

Tiger Liu from Ekahau shows off the new copy and paste feature in v8.0.7. Either right-click and select copy & paste, or use CTRL+C / CTRL+V.

Adjust heatmap opacity to make the floor plan more visible

Adjust Heatmap Opacity
You can now adjust the visualization transparency / opacity to your liking via the (Visualization) Options dialog.

Quick AP coverage toggling

  • Selecting an access point on the map view now automatically deselects the other access point(s)
  • This allows you to quickly toggle between each access point’s coverage when you are showing the visualization for the Selected Access Points
  • To select multiple access points on the map view, hold down the CTRL / SHIFT / CMD button or select the APs one by one on the left hand side Access Point List. You can also do the group selection with Edit-tool now!
Ekahau AP Toggling
When you click on an AP, that will automatically de-select the other AP(s) allowing you to quickly toggle between the AP coverage areas. When you need to select multiple APs, just hold down the CTRL / CMD / SHIFT button while clicking on the APs. Just make sure you are showing the visualization for the selected APs.

Improvements for non-adjacent wall segment handling

  • Editing multiple wall elements simultaneously now applies only on the selected elements
  • Previously the change was also applied on the elements between the selected elements which practically made the whole multi wall edit unusable

Addition of Aerohive multi-radio logic

HUGE amount of new APs and antennas from almost 40 different vendors
