iBwave Wi-Fi® Suite
THE FASTEST WAY TO PLAN, DESIGNAND ENSURE CARRIER-GRADE Wi-Fi
When it comes to planning and designing indoor Wi-Fi networks, three of the largest challenges companies face are the time and money required to deploy networks, guaranteeing network quality to keep the end users satisifed, and ensuring simple maintenance and upgrades in the future. iBwave Wi-Fi® Suite is a powerful platform that solves all of these challenges by providing you with a powerful Wi-Fi network planning and design solution which signficantly reduces deployment times, ensures carrier-grade Wi-Fi, and simplifies future maintenance and upgrade activities. With iBwave you also get access to iBwave’s certification program to instill proficiency and best practices for your
From site survey to post-deployment maintenance, use the iBwave Wi-Fi Suite through all phases of your Wi-Fi network projects to streamline your
network planning and design activities. The result? Win bids faster, finish projects sooner , and maximize your ROI.
- ALL-IN-ONE SITE SURVEYS.
Use iBwave Wi-Fi Mobile app on a tablet to do active and passive surveys, capture site documentation and notes on the digital floor plan, identify capacity requirements by zones, start a preliminary design on-site and assess potential performance with heatmaps. Then save it all to the cloud to access on the desktop.
- FULL NETWORK DESIGN AND VALIDATION.
Design your network from our large database of vendor-modeled network components. Model cable trays and rises, route cabling with automatic cable alignment, place switches, routers, closet equipment and place your APs manually or automatically. Validate your design as you go and impress your customer by showing them the entire design of a network in 3D.
- ADVANCED REPORTING AND DOCUMENTATION.
Easily generate a full bill-of-materials, costing reports, annotation reports, compliance reports and more with our advanced reporting.
- ADVANCED 3D PREDICTION & HEATMAPS.
Model your venues, including incline surfaces, in advanced 3D. See live signal strength predictions as you design with smart antenna contouring, calibrate prediction using live measurements, and use iBwave Wi-Fi’s extremely accurate prediction engine to simulate network performance.
- CLOUD COLLABORATION.
Help your field and office teams stay in sync with iBwave Unity, our cloud-based site management tool that keeps all project information syncrhonized in one location. Have a field tech do a site survey then upload all information to the cloud where a co-worker can easily open the project and continue the design work at the office. When the design is done, save it back to iBwave Unity where it can be accessed during validation or later on for maintenance.
Use iBwave Wi-Fi’s powerful prediction engine to accurately simulate network performance and demonstrate KPI compliance.
- ADVANCED 3D MODELING.
Model your venues in advanced 3D from our large database of materials - or add your own material on the fly. Model incline surfaces, assign signal loss for both 2.4GHz and 5 GHz to maximize predication accuracy,
- ADVANCED CAPACITY PLANNING.
Identify capacity requirements for an entire floor and/or for a specific area of a floorplan. View capacity results in a 3D capacity pass/fail heatmap or in an average data rate per use heatmap.
- POWERFUL PROPAGATION.
Ensure network quality and KPI compliance with our extremely accurate propagation engine to accurately simulate the performance of the network before deployment in 3D.
- PREDICTION CALIBRATION.
Take prediction accuracy one step further by calibrating prediction results with live measurements collected during the site survey. The result? A significantly smaller risk of post-installation troubleshooting costs.
With intelligent design automation and optimization capabilities, iBwave Wi-Fi gives you both faster project times as well as optimized designs that do not cause unnecessary equipment expeditures.
- AUTOMATIC ACCESS POINT PLACEMENT
Using iBwave Wi-Fi or iBwave WiFi Mobile you can optimize your design with automatic AP placement.
- SMART ANTENNA CONTOURING
Eliminate the time it takes to run prediction over and over again by seeing live prediction results of Access Points as you place them on the design.
- ACCURATE PREDICTION AND DESIGN OPTIMIZATION
iBwave Wi-Fi has a powerful propagation engine that ensures the network you design is optimized and will work as designed once deployed. For you this means signficantly less troubleshooting costs post-deployment, and eliminating the risk of overspending on network equipment that is not needed.
- AUTOMATIC ERROR CHECKING
Catch design errors or issues as the network is designed to ensure accuracy of the design and eliminate the risk of postdeployment troublehooting costs.
- COST DETAILS
Ensure you stay on budget as you design by assigning network parts (APs, routers, switches, cables, etc) costs and construction costs
By using iBwave Unity, all of the work done in iBwave Wi-Fi Mobile and iBwave Wi-Fi on the PC will be synchronized and easy to access and share by all
from a single location in the cloud.
