Capacity Analysis (new in version 2.0!)

Visualize capacity utilization and the impact caused by client devices with varying capabilities. Data is shown by:

  • Protocol version

  • Frequency band

  • Application type (data, voip/real-time)

  • Spatial streams

  • Channel width

Quickly determine the impact of legacy clients on your network!

Mesh Network Planning
(new in version 2.0!)

Plan 5 GHz single-channel mesh networks to determine how many root nodes are necessary to meet capacity requirements and the per-hop mesh network performance. Use an existing client capacity plan or manually configure mesh network capacity requirements.

Multiple Uses

Use the Capacity Planner for predictive WLAN design, Wi-Fi training and education, RFP proposals, project scoping, and creating a bill of materials (BOM)

 

Airtime vs Association

Forecast WLAN capacity based on
either client airtime demand or association limits per-AP radio

Iterative Design Approach

Use Capacity Planner in conjunction with RF planning tools in an iterative approach to derive a design that meets both coverage and capacity requirements

PDF Reports

Save the capacity plan data, capacity analysis visualizations, and mesh network plan as a PDF report. Great for project documentation and for communicating with management to explain technical concepts in an easy-to-understand format to influence budgeting and planning.

Check out a few sample reports:
