Ekahau Sidekick® is the most advanced, all-in-one Wi-Fi diagnostic and measurement device on the market, delivering pinpoint accuracy for professional results. Build the highest performing wireless networks and diagnose network issues faster, more accurately, and on the go with your Sidekick.
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.

With a built-in all-day battery and hands-free design, the Sidekick makes you more mobile by transforming your smartphone or tablet into a powerful Wi-Fi tool. Using Ekahau Survey or Ekahau Analyzer apps and your Sidekick, you don’t need extra equipment to validate or troubleshoot your network.
Trusted by Wi-Fi Pros Around the Globe
“The power of the Sidekick as a spectrum analyzer has been huge. I’ve been testing and analyzing Wi-Fi 6 access points for quite a while now and being able to use the Sidekick to reliably look for OFDMA in all sorts of platforms has been invaluable.”
