AirMagnet® Planner

Wi-Fi Network Planning Tool

Accurately plan and design Wi-Fi 6 networks without rolling out any APs physically.

Key Features

Accurately plan and design Wi-Fi 6 networks without physically rolling out any APs.

Optimize AP count and layout for maximized coverage and performance by modeling building construction materials/obstructions and AP placement.

Reduce time spent planning by quickly importing walls from CAD floor plans.

Estimate Wi-Fi deployment budgets; generate installer-ready BOM reports.

Plan migration strategies as new users or technologies are introduced.

Home Screen

AirMagnet Planner allows you to predictively model Wi-Fi 6 network changes or design a new network for optimal coverage, connectivity, and performance with comprehensive wireless design software. It also allows you to compare plans side-by-side, validate requirements, or generate custom reports. Select the 2D Planner option to learn more!

Planner

Allows you to provide information on building materials, attenuation areas, and APs for an entire building. Try selecting the Advisor tool!

Benefits: Uses information about the physical environment to accurately calculate how many Access Points you need and where to place them. Plus provides visibility on how the Wi-Fi network signal can propagate through an entire building.

Planner Advisor

The Multi Floor Planner Advisor will automatically calculate how many APs you need and where to place them. It will also provide visibility on how the signal of specific APs propagates throughout the building. Now it’s time to generate a report! Select the Reports option

Benefits: Remove all guess work from the Wi-Fi network planning process! Quickly determines how many APs will be needed and where to place them based on the physical environment and your requirements.

Reports

Customizable Reports

Generates customizable reports. Provides the option to use an existing template or custom reports.

Benefits: Quickly generate reports as required while having the option to easily create custom reports. Simplifies the process of generating Bill of Material and Planner Reports.

Sophisticated WLAN Modeling

AirMagnet Planner makes it easy to build a detailed model of any wireless environment – even before the network is deployed or the building is constructed. Simply load in a map of the location and use the built-in library of walls, doors and windows to precisely match the building’s characteristics.

 

AirMagnet Planner allows users to add AP’s to any location and experiment to find the ideal placement for the environment based on their requirements. AirMagnet Planner also provides independent settings for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios. Users can set the AP channel, IP address, transmit power, antenna type, orientation, height, and 802.11 specifications. When the planning session is complete, users can generate a professional Bill of Materials report with all the information that is needed to properly install the network. Along with RF coverage information, users can access performance metrics such as data rates and throughput.

 

Automatic Wall Extraction (AWE)

Users can reduce the amount of time spent preparing a floorplan for wireless deployment by quickly importing walls from CAD floorplans with only a few clicks of the mouse. Each CAD layer can be individually selected and given a unique attenuation type.

 

802.11 Modeling

With AirMagnet Planner, users can design new Wi-Fi 6 networks, as well as plan their migration strategies for existing legacy networks, including one-to-one replacements or the phased introduction of devices into their legacy network. Users can plan their deployments for user capacity or performance without any physical AP rollout. AirMagnet Planner provides unique coverage maps for WLAN throughput and other technology specific heat maps such as signal coverage, Operating Modes, MCS Transmit Rate, Channel Width and Channel Overlap, to predict the WLAN performance at every location on the floor and offer the best design that minimizes any rework once the network is deployed.

Multi-Floor Modeling

As users plan and design wireless access in multi-floor buildings, it makes economic sense to reuse services of APs to lower equipment deployment costs. With AirMagnet Planner’s multi-floor planning capability, users can visualize coverage and performance heat maps in 2D and 3D across floors, providing powerful insight into bleed over to adjacent floors.

 

Users are empowered with visualizations of signal strength, data rates, Operating Mode, MCS Transmit Rate, Channel Width, and Channel Overlap between floors and more.
