Ekahau Inc. today announced that Fluke Networks is incorporating its Wi-Fi site survey technology to create planning and measurement tools for testing 802.11 coverage and performance.

The first jointly developed product, Fluke Networks’ InterpretAir WLAN Survey software, assists networking engineers who design and optimize Wi-Fi networks for applications such as Voice over WLAN (VoWLAN) and other high-performance uses.

As corporate wireless networks continue to grow at a healthy rate, many companies are ready to adopt Wi-Fi for a campus-wide use, and therefore are more and more concerned about reliable 24/7 wireless connectivity within the Wi-Fi service area and cost-
effective placement of access points, the two companies said in a statement.

InterpretAir uses Ekahau’s Site Survey technology to analyze and visually plot Wi-Fi coverage and performance throughout the corporate campus.

It also draws a visual coverage map overlaid on top of building floor plans, so that network engineers can adjust Wi-Fi access points as needed to ensure optimal network performance.
