iBwave has introduced its first Wi-Fi only product, iBwave Wi-Fi Mobile, a cloud-connected mobile app with the ability to survey, design and validate Wi-Fi networks.
As a major provider of in-building wireless network design, iBwave’s software portfolio already included Wi-Fi capabilities, but the new Wi-Fi app extends this and provides customers with a simple yet robust Wi-Fi only solution, which transforms their smartphone or tablet into a Wi-Fi network design and debug tool.
The company claimed the apps’ capability goes far beyond just being a simple site survey tool. iBwave Wi-Fi Mobile’s design and validation features can cut design and deployment time in half. Plus its ability to connect with the iBwave Cloud enables complete collaboration by giving anytime, anywhere access to project files that are iBwave eco-system compatible.
“Based on evolving wireless trends, we observed a need for a standalone Wi-Fi solution that would immediately increase productivity and collaboration as well as be ready for future heterogeneous wireless networks in a building,” said Scott Pereira, Director Global Product Partnerships & Innovations.
“We are happy to deliver the new iBwave Wi-Fi Mobile app - a powerful cloud connected solution that lets you survey, design, validate and share Wi-Fi projects easily,” he added.
According to Andrew von Nagy, wireless networking expert and owner of Revolution Wi-Fi: "iBwave brings their considerable indoor wireless design expertise to the unlicensed market with the release of iBwave Wi-Fi Mobile. For Wi-Fi professionals, iBwave Wi-Fi Mobile brings unique RF design capabilities based on over 13 years of indoor wireless expertise that will improve WLAN design in ever more challenging environments.
“iBwave Wi-Fi Mobile along with the iBwave Cloud will enable simple and efficient collaboration across multiple engineering teams throughout the project lifecycle. iBwave Wi-Fi Mobile provides a professional tool to ensure successful Wi-Fi network deployments and is a welcome addition."
With the upcoming release of iBwave Wi-Fi for PC in March 2016, iBwave will soon have a complete Wi-Fi network design production solution – a mobile app, a PC version with powerful 3D design functionality, and an integrated cloud offering to efficiently manage and synchronise all project files.
