Ekahau, provider of enterprise Wi-Fi network design solutions, announces a new distribution agreement with PV Lumens, a distribution enterprise with nation-wide presence across 18 locations in India.
Under the terms of the new agreement, PV Lumens will market, sell, and support Ekahau Connect to its growing network of channel partners. The recently released suite of integrated Wi-Fi tools enables Wi-Fi professionals to design, optimize and troubleshoot any Wi-Fi network faster and easier than ever before.
Ekahau Connect builds on the success of Ekahau Pro (formerly Ekahau Site Survey) and Ekahau Sidekick. It introduces new and revolutionary capabilities designed to make Wi-Fi professionals faster and more productive. The new version of Ekahau Pro includes a number of improvements such as automatic interference detection, automatic access point detection and placement, and support for performing 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) site surveys when combined with Ekahau Sidekick.
Ekahau Sidekick is a precise Wi-Fi diagnostic and measurement device for professionals. It includes two Wi-Fi radios and a spectrum analyzer for professional Wi-Fi site surveys and troubleshooting.
PV Lumens will sell the entire Ekahau Connect suite, which includes:
• Ekahau Survey for iPad, the first-ever professional grade Wi-Fi site survey tool for the iPad, making the solution 70 percent lighter than using a laptop and reducing breaks previously needed to charge up the device.
• Ekahau Capture, an easy-to-use packet capture tool that anyone can use to quickly capture Wi-Fi pack ets using Ekahau Sidekick, eliminating the need to invest in dedicated and expensive equipment.
• Ekahau Cloud, enables seamless collaboration between central office and field sites and makes project sharing with your entire team simple and easy. Easily switch between cloud and local modes when projects or customers require data to be stored offline.
