Fluke Networks' AirMagnet Survey PRO First to Use Real-World Data to Ensure
Wi-Fi Networks are Ready for Cisco Location Services
Users can increase accuracy and reduce costly network redesigns with
pre-configured Cisco Location Services profiles
EVERETT, Wash., April 24, 2013
EVERETT, Wash., April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fluke Networks today announced
that AirMagnet Survey PRO is the first to offer pre-configured profiles that
use real-world wireless data to help wireless engineers instantly determine –
with a higher level of accuracy than ever before – whether or not a network
adheres to Cisco's best practices for deploying Cisco Location Services. With
just one click, organizations can improve wireless rollouts, eliminating the
need for costly post-deployment redesigns.
"Cisco Location Services allows organizations to use wireless for more than
just traditional connectivity so they can track devices and personnel via tags
and their mobile devices on a wireless network. But, for this service to be
successful, customers need to meet certain critical wireless infrastructure
requirements," said Chris Spain, vice president of product marketing for the
wireless networking group at Cisco. "AirMagnet Survey PRO's new integration of
Cisco Location Services profiles allows customers to quickly gauge readiness
based on real-world data, which brings a new level of accuracy to the
"AirMagnet Survey PRO's newly integrated pre-configured profiles gives us a
level of accuracy that speeds the testing process so our wireless engineers
can get instant pass/fail results, as well as details on how to optimize the
network if requirements are not met," said Dennis Holmes, director of mobility
and infrastructure solutions at Internetwork Engineering. "In the end, this
allows us to ensure that Cisco Location Services are deployed effectively for
our customers, saving both parties time and money."
AirMagnet Survey PRO is the industry's most accurate solution for planning and
designing 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless LANs (WLAN) for optimal performance,
security and compliance. ForCisco Location Services to work optimally, there
are strict wireless network guidelines including access point placement,
access point separation distance, minimum signal level thresholds,
preparedness for voice and data coexistence, and more. Therefore, it is
important to maximize the accuracy and minimize variance between simulated and
real-world data when determining readiness for the service.
"When deploying key wireless services, it's vital to survey the network and
gather real-world information that is representative of actual network
performance. Cisco Location Services offer customers an innovative capability
that can be strategically deployed to track personnel and ensure security, but
verifying that the network can support this service is critical," said
Chia-Chee Kuan, vice president of the Fluke Networks WLAN business unit.
"Working with Cisco to optimize AirMagnet Survey PRO will help customers
streamline the process and more successfully deploy Cisco Location Services
based on real-world wireless data."
