Clear pass/fail indication
Ekahau Analyzer automatically validates the health of your Wi-Fi network by testing it against predefined requirements and displaying the results with clear and easy-to-understand pass/fail indications. Get instant diagnostics for:
- Signal strength
Provides details of the Wi-Fi network with display of the primary signal level and the secondary signal for redundancy and roaming purposes.
- Signal-to-noise ratio
SNR (Signal-Noise-Ratio) shows the quality of the network signal, which directly affects the achievable data rates and the performance of various clients and applications in your network.
- Channel quality
Determines which channels in your wireless network are overloaded and causing interference.
- Connectivity analysis
Actively tests your network with your mobile device to monitor roaming behaviour and check that your network has sufficient overlap.
- Automatic test in less than 60 seconds
Now you can start validating and troubleshooting your wireless network in less than 60 seconds. With the easy-to-use touchscreen interface and advanced spectrum analysis features, you can troubleshoot the most common network problems quickly, on the go and at your convenience.
- Fast, high-resolution Spectrum Analyzer App
Spectrum View uses the high-resolution spectrum analyser in the Ekahau Sidekick* to display RF interference in real time. This gives you a clear overview of your network and allows you to troubleshoot problems faster.
Easy-to-use packet capture tool for advanced troubleshooting and in-depth analysis.
- Advanced troubleshooting
Easily capture the data you need for advanced troubleshooting and in-depth analysis of hard-to-diagnose Wi-Fi problems.
Ekahau Capture allows anyone to quickly capture Wi-Fi packets with the Ekahau Sidekick*.
- No additional equipment
You no longer need to invest in special and expensive equipment or resort to complex and unreliable methods to perform packet capture.
Capture to optimise the performance of Wi-Fi networks.
Capture the causes of high channel utilisation and calculate WLAN traffic statistics such as repetition rates, average data rates and frame type distribution.
Keep your network secure
Capture security threats such as misconfigured Wi-Fi security settings, exposed network or user information, unencrypted traffic and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.
Two are more than one
Use both Wi-Fi radios in the Ekahau Sidekick* to capture on two Wi-Fi channels simultaneously and ensure that no packets are missed when devices move between two access points. Or you can capture on 2.4 and 5 GHz simultaneously.
Compatible with Sidekick* or third-party tools.
Ekahau Capture stores packets in the industry standard .pcap format. Use the Sidekick* All-in-One Wi-Fi Diagnostic Tool included with Connect or another packet analyser (sold separately) to troubleshoot connectivity issues, roaming problems, garbled audio, dropped calls and Wi-Fi driver problems.
Work across teams and simultaneously on a project to leverage on-site staff and external Wi-Fi experts.

The challenge for today's WiFi networks has long since ceased to be limited to simply providing seamless WiFi coverage. With the increasing use of smartphones, tablets, laptops and other Wi-Fi devices, network capacity can quickly become a problematic bottleneck and the cause of production downtime.
The new Ekahau PRO offers special tools for a quick analysis of network capacity and for the timely detection of any bottlenecks that could be caused by insufficient capacity in the WLAN area.
Ekahau PRO takes into account the capacity requirements of the WLAN network, based on the placement of the access points. The more network capacity is required, the denser the layout of the proposed access points.
What exactly does the Ekahau Heatmapper do?
These are the features of Ekahau
- 3D modelling: Forecast models for multiple as well as multi-storey buildings can be created within a few minutes.
- Automated network planning: The optimal number and placement of access points is determined based on this.
- Validation: Active and passive indoor and GPS-assisted outdoor site surveys can be carried out to check coverage and performance of existing WiFi setups.
- Analysis and optimisation: The results of this test are clearly presented visually. It can also simulate changes in the payload as well as in the environment, so you can better assess if and when an upgrade might be necessary.
- Troubleshooting: A real-time frequency monitoring tool (RTFM) helps to detect WiFi problems.
- Reporting: Generate reports on WLAN coverage, capacity and performance.
- Ekahau Cloud Support: You can easily access, store and share your project files in the integrated cloud service via the application.
- Integrated memory in the SideKick: The SideKick gadget has an integrated and therefore portable memory. For all those who like to have their project files with them.
