Fast, reliable and consistent wireless coverage for an enterprise business is a must. Customers are expecting it, employees need it, and these days, many day-to-day operations in the enterprise depend on it. But providing great wireless coverage in the enterprise is not that easy for IT teams to accomplish. Multiple connections need to be running at the same time, Wi-Fi and cellular networks are converging together, buildings can be complex to design for, traffic requirements are constantly shifting, and future upgrades need to be considered. Simply put, a plug-and-play wireless network is no longer enough with so much at stake.
Fast, reliable, and consistent connectivity starts with a great network design.

The ability to design and visualize Wi-Fi networks in 3-D is a unique iBwave feature that I have come to rely on for access point placement and troubleshooting. The granularity iBwave provides is exceptional, especially with the new capability to design with multi-radio APs that are unique to Riverbed Xirrus for supporting high density Wi-Fi networks. Add to that the mobile tools and the variety of reports you can generate makes iBwave an invaluable tool for Wi-Fi deployment.- Ty Parker, Director Solutions Engineering for Riverbed CWNE #173 -
iBwave's 3D predictive modeling and new smart antenna contouring with fast ray tracing takes Wi-Fi design tools to a whole new level.- Alan Blake, CWNE #129, CWNT, United Kingdom -
From a vendor neutral perspective, probably iBwave Wi-Fi (PC Version) is the most advanced solution in the market. With full support to integrate Wi-Fi APs with detailed backhaul cabling , network infrastructures and budgeting, 3D venue modeling and network visualizations, the most advanced RF calculations for prediction accuracy, and cloud integration to simplify the interaction between Wi-Fi architects, project managers and site surveyors.- Ronald Van Kleunen, CWNE #108, CEO Globeron -
In today’s high density Wi-Fi environments, airtime is a precious commodity that is best served by the abundance of available channels in 5 GHz. Access points with dual 5 GHz radios are best suited to meet airtime and capacity needs. A software selectable radio also offers the benefit of 2.4 GHz connectivity when needed. iBwave’s multi-radio feature assists any WLAN professional with dual 5 GHz WLAN designs in addition to legacy 2.4/5GHz WLANs designs.- David Coleman CWNE #4 -
