NETSCOUT has now released version 9.0 for the AirMagnet Survey products: AirMagnet Survey PRO, AirMagnet Survey Express, and AirMagnet Planner. In addition to being fully NETSCOUT branded, this new release is focused on feedback we’ve received from our customers on ways to make the tool more valuable and usable.
At the same time, NETSCOUT will release Spectrum XT version 3.8 and Wi-Fi Analyzer version 11.2. These releases will also include NETSCOUT branding and user enhancements.
Highlights of new Survey features
Survey Mobile for Android:
AirMagnet Survey PRO release 9.0 provides you with NETSCOUT’S Android-based survey tool Survey Mobile. [Note, Survey Mobile is only included with Survey PRO.]
Survey Mobile allows you to quickly and easily conduct surveys on Android phones or tablets. This allows data to be collected on lower end BYOD / consumer grade devices to see how these devices will experience the network. Once your survey is complete, simply email the project from your handheld device and open the project in AirMagnet Survey PRO for deeper survey analysis and reporting.
Customers can find the .apk file for this software in their Survey PRO installation directory.
Additional Viewer Licenses:
For customers with an active Gold contract, they will now be given up to 3 viewer licenses rather than the current 1. The first viewer license will be provided through the MyAirMagnet interface just as it is today, and the extra viewer licenses can be obtained by contacting our TAC team.
CAD layer viewing:
When importing a DWG image, users can now select which specific layers within the CAD drawing they would like to view within Survey. This can cut down on clutter and make CAD files much easier to work with.
Automatic AP Numbering:
This release adds an automatic renumbering feature to the Planner functionality. If access points are deleted / removed during the course of planning activities, the renumbering button will allow all APs in the floorplan to be renumbered without gaps in the numbering scheme. This removes the need for our customers to manually renumber all APs in a site.
New Spectrum XT and Wi-Fi Analyzer features
Spectrum XT AP Alias Names, DFS spectrum labeling, Add All to Reports.
This release provides users the option to assign a user-friendly alias name to APs for display throughout the product. It also labels on the spectrum graphs where Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) channels reside, which is important for seeing where these conditional-availability channels lie relative to spectrum activity. A button for adding all displayed graphs to a custom report quickens the report creation process.
Wi-Fi Analyzer multi-adapter capture save to .cap format
This release provides users the option to save multi-adapter packet captures to a .cap file format.
