Enterprise Networking: AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO 9 Aids Roaming Analysis by Scanning Multiple Channels
By enabling support for multiple sensors and delivering a new analysis module, AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer Pro 9.0 now analyzes WiFi client roaming behavior, adding the ability to monitor three channels at the same time without missing any WiFi packets. Unfortunately, current design limitations mean wireless administrators can't scan with one adapter while monitoring static channels with the other sensors. The new version, the first to work on 64-bit Windows operating systems, also delivers a more action-oriented interface and better connection troubleshooting tools. AirMagnet, a Fluke Networks company, started shipping Analyzer PRO 9.0 this month for $3,995. Analyzer PRO 9 is also available as a free upgrade to current customers with an active support contract.
