The First Wi-Fi Site Survey and Troubleshooting Device
Wi-Fi is mission-critical to businesses of all sizes as over 55% of Internet traffic is generated over Wi-Fi today and site surveys are at the core of a successful network design.
Traditionally Wi-Fi measurements have been collected with a mixed bag of various dongles and other Wi-Fi devices. Ekahau Sidekick™ is an all-in-one measurement device that dramatically streamlines the site survey process whilst providing greater reliability, accuracy and convenience.
The Ultimate All-in-One Device
Ekahau Sidekick™ is the ultimate compact all-in-one device for wireless surveys, troubleshooting and analysis.
Ekahau Sidekick™ was custom-built to connect with Ekahau Site Survey and houses two enterprise-grade 802.11ac adapters and an ultra-high resolution spectrum analyser, giving more accurate measurements than ever before.
Plug and play to get 2x faster site surveys and 4-10x faster spectrum analysis compared to other Wi-Fi spectrum analysers.
Survey For Longer
Ekahau Sidekick™ houses a dedicated rechargeable battery that runs for 8 hours. Unlike other solutions, Sidekick will not consume your laptop battery.
Two Enterprise-Grade Wi-Fi Radios
Two enterprise-grade, dual-band Wi-Fi adapters minimise the Wi-Fi site survey and troubleshooting time.
The World’s Most Advanced Wi-Fi Spectrum Analyzer
An ultra-high resolution spectrum analyser provides unforeseen clarity to Wi-Fi spectrum. The spectrum analyser operates on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands simultaneously, both at 20 sweeps per second.
Simultaneous Active and Passive Site Surveys
While Ekahau Sidekick™ analyses spectrum and measures Wi-Fi signals, the Wi-Fi adapter in your laptop or tablet is free for active and throughput surveys.
Wear it Your Way
Ekahau Sidekick™ was designed to be worn any way you like. Whilst a messenger style strap is shipped with the unit there is plenty of flexibility with a standard camera screw, 8 H-shaped holes or 4 Pull-through holes for straps, and a cable holder.
Windows or macOS. The choice is yours.
Ekahau Sidekick™ is the only device that enables professional Wi-Fi site surveys on both macOS and Windows.
