Accuracy Is Critical for Wi-Fi Design

The accuracy of the Sidekick allows you to identify the signal correctly the first time ensuring you get the right number of APs in the right location for your design. Relying on a Wi-Fi adapter or dongle adds high variance and risk that can significantly increase the cost and reduce the effectiveness of your network. Get the right tool for the job with Sidekick.
