Ekahau to speak on Wi-Fi maintenance challenges and showcase New Wi-Fi Network Design Tool at BICSI Fall Conference

RESTON, Va. and LAS VEGAS, Sept. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ekahau, the leader in Wi-Fi design tools, will be exhibiting and speaking at the annual BICSI Fall Conference and Exhibition, taking place September 20-23 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ekahau's vice president of Wi-Fi Design Tools, Jussi Kiviniemi (Twitter: @jussikiviniemi), will lead a session at the conference on challenges and solutions relating to Wi-Fi network maintenance.

BICSI (Building Industry Consulting Service International) serves nearly 23,000 individual installers and technicians as well as companies in the ICT sector, providing education on audio/video, cabling, and networking equipment installation. Installing fixed Ethernet networks, or distributed antenna systems (DAS), requires different practices and tools than installing Wi-Fi networks. With the prevalent demand for Wi-Fi in most buildings around the world, the BICSI installers increasingly face the need to design and install wireless LAN technology. To help with this need Ekahau hosts in-depth Ekahau Certified Survey Engineer classes, which BICSI recognizes for BICSI Continuing Education Credits (CECs).

Ekahau's core business is developing tools for Wi-Fi installers and the Ekahau team is excited to showcase their latest product at the BICSI Fall Conference. Ekahau Wi-Fi tools, such as Ekahau Site Survey and Planner, are used by engineers for designing the Wi-Fi network, visualizing the network coverage and performance, as well as validating and troubleshooting existing Wi-Fi installations. The new version of Ekahau Site Survey and Planner includes automatic wall detection from floor plans, which reduces Wi-Fi design time by several days, as well as throughput and jitter testing for accurately measuring network capacity and capabilities for voice over Wi-Fi.

You can find the Ekahau team in booth #210 at BICSI Fall Conference. The latest versions of Ekahau Wi-Fi Design Tools will be on display.

Join the Ekahau session "Maintaining Wireless LANs: Your Check Engine Light May Be On" on Wednesday, September 23 from 9-10 a.m.
