AirMagnet Inc. has announced what it says is the industry’s first true voice-grade site survey capability for wireless. This capability – made possible with new versions of AirMagnet Survey PRO and AirMagnet VoFi Analyzer PRO – enables organizations to deploy voice applications and troubleshoot voice-over-wireless network issues.
The AirMagnet solution allows network installers and IT staff to not only design and deploy the network using AirMagnet’s built-in voice readiness verification system (now includes support for Cisco 7925 phones and Vocera communications badges), but also to perform real-world voice surveys on an ongoing basis. With these voice surveys, users can validate and plot the phone call quality, capacity and other voice specific parameters at every location on a floor map, to help identify and minimize issues that may be causing low call quality.
AirMagnet Survey PRO provides coverage maps built specifically for voice networks, including WiMOS (phone call quality), wireless access point’s voice capacity, channel utilization and phone data rate/retry rates, as well as real-time roaming alerts and statistics.
This latest release of the AirMagnet VoFi Analyzer PRO includes support for the 7.0 version of the Cisco Call Manager, enabling users to correlate diagnostic information collected from the air or phone with the wire-side information, such as latency, lost packets and call termination reasons from the Call Manager.
AirMagnet Survey PRO and AirMagnet VoFi Analyzer PRO are available now and are priced at $3,695 and $4,995, respectively. The new features are available and free to existing AirMagnet Survey PRO and AirMagnet VoFi Analyzer PRO customers who have a current support agreement.
