Ekahau Site Survey 8.01 Released


Ekahau have just released Ekahau Site Survey + Planner v8.0.1. Despite the minor version number, this release has plenty of new things on it, including:

  • ALL Cisco APs and antennas are now included for network planning. Just to play fair, they also added Aruba 277 and a few others, too
  • New set of mouse cursors for network planning are in place, hopefully to prevent accidental AP placements and the like. In other words: it’s now easier to see when you’re adding stuff, as opposed to editing stuff. See the video below for details 
  • Measured data rate can now be visualized (use Visualization Options to select)
  • Supported data rates for surveyed APs can now be seen (see the second video)
  • Visualization Legend can now be hidden (a request we got at WLPC)
  • The sometimes-annoying heatmap tooltip is now shown only when using the Edit tool
  • Several bug and other fixes
