I have been a user of both Air Magnet and Ekahau products and each has its own cool features and use cases.  However I prefer Ekahau tool sets, and here is why.

The one key item that truly stands out here is the Wi-Fi Tools team @Ekahau.

With Jussi Kiviniemi’s ( @jussikiviniemi )appointment to Vice President of Wi-Fi Tools at Ekahau in June 2013 was one of the best things that has happened to WiFi tools at Ekahau.

He has shown a great interest and understanding in finding out what the boots on the ground need to do their job right the first time.

Not only does he market the product, but he is an actual user as well.   Jussi knows how to survey / design.  He also know’s whats needed to be done from a logistics point of view of making a great product and getting into the hands of every Wireless Engineer at a fast pace.

Jussi is always upfront / honest and listens to what’s griping us or why is that feature not working or can it be done.

This is a rare trait and it’s something you don’t find at every vendor.

Remember folks, it’s the people like Jussi that are behind the scenes that reach out to the community and get involved in making outstanding products that we can actually use.

I don’t often speak out like this publicly, but when I do, I do it because recognition is needed.

AirTight (MiniBlog)

Posted on Updated on

Another reason why I’m really stoked to be apart of #WFD7 is AirTight Networks.

That’s right folks AirTight will be at Wireless Field Day 7.  This will be AirTights third appearance at a Wireless Field Day event.  

AirTight has always intrigued me for the cool “Nerd Knobs” and interactive web GUI.  They get right to the point and show you the cool metrics that we Wireless folks love to see.   

With lucky number #WFD7 fast approaching, I wonder what AirTight has in store for the delegates?

Aruba eh? (MiniBlog)

Posted on

Sweet!!!! I was hoping Aruba would be present at #WFD7.  

This will be my first visit to the big Aruba HQ and really looking forward to getting a behind the scenes look at this mobility company up close and see how they are focusing on #GENMOBILE and 802.11ac.

Oh and lets not forget a new comer to the wireless vendor arena Sean Rynearson; Aruba’s Chief Airhead.  Over the past year I have been following Sean on twitter and on the Airhead community pages where he has been actively building up the Aruba Airhead’s.

Avaya does Wireless? (MiniBlog)

Posted on Updated on

Yes folks you heard it right.  Avaya enters the Wireless Field head on.

Avaya in my mind has always been a heavy hitter in the VoIP, and Video space for years.  I’m really interested to see what Avaya will bring to the WiFi playground and how they will play with devices  at Wireless Field Day 7

My fellow #WFD7 delegate  Jennifer Huber also commented on this at Excited to hear Avaya present at Wireless Field Day 7!
