Ekahau Version 9 Released (Finally)

July 6th, 2017 by Open Reality

After over two years in development the much anticipated new version of Ekahau Site Survey & 3D Planner is finally here.

After releasing version 8.0 the Ekahau team set out with one purpose – to create a solution that makes it easy to design Wi-Fi for today’s and tomorrow’s purposes. Should have been quite easy, right?

Well, no. As is turned out the Ekahau development team had to completely re-write the capacity planning and analysis, auto-planner, and channel-planner areas of the software to achieve their goals. However what has been released certainly looks well worth the wait as the features list is awesome.

Version 9.0.0 is completely free for all users with a valid software maintenance contract, your software should automatically update next time you launch it. If your maintenance contract has expired please contact us on 01235 556 400 about your upgrade options.
