VisiWave Site Survey Software
Together with Wi-Spy, VisiWave Site Survey provides easy-to-use mapping and troubleshooting of Wi-Fi networks by displaying both signal strenth and interference levels.
VisiWave Site Survey is a complete 802.11a/b/g/n site surveying solution. You collect survey data using a standard wireless adapter while walking around the survey area clicking on a floor plan image to locate turns or using a GPS receiver to track your location. VisiWave quickly and automatically maps out radio characteristics in the survey area using either the included reporting application or by integrating with Google Earth. These allow you to easily assess your overall Wi-Fi coverage and to drill into great detail on specific areas of interest.
VisiWave is an effective tool for performing surveys inside buildings, outside on campuses, city-wide hotspots, already deployed wireless networks, or pre-deployment sites.

Site Survey Process
Step 1 – Walk or drive the survey area (building, city block, campground, restaurant, airport, campus, …) collecting 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi data and/or interference data using the optional Wi-Spy spectrum analyzer. Set capture points using click-to-locate, travel paths or GPS.
Step 2 – Design a report using the built-in reporting tool to create a custom report or re-use an existing report template. Alternatively have VisiWave produce a KML file for viewing within Google Earth.
Step 3 – Generate the report in PDF or HTML format or bring the data into Google Earth for an interactive view of your coverage.
Step 4 – Use the visualized wireless coverage to illustrate your findings to your boss, clients, peers, community, etc. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
