Sidekick

Ekahau Sidekick is a device that can be used for site surveying and troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks. Its on-board battery and CPU helps offloading much of the processing from the survey device.

 

The battery can last up to 8 hours without charging. The device is really light weight and easy to carry which also greatly improves surveying productivity. If you are looking for an alternative to a basic usb dongle, Ekahau Sidekick could be a perfect choice.

Ekahau Sidekick to help with site surveying, designing and analysing wireless networks

 

Traditional wireless measurements needs to be taken using a mix of various dongles and other Wi-Fi devices. Ekahau Sidekick is a game changer that provides outstanding accuracy using multiple internal antennas. They are placed in optimum orientation to deliver precise and consistent measurements. The product is designed to work with Ekahau Site Survey Pro and Ekahau Survey for iPad when surveying, optimizing or troubleshooting wireless networks. It is fully compatible with iOS, macOS and iOS devices. There is no requirement for any additional drivers.

Packet Capture & Spectrum Analyzer for expert level troubleshooting

 

Today’s wireless issues are often caused by interfering non-Wi-Fi sources such as microwave ovens, video transmitters or cordless phones. Ekahau Sidekick has built-in high resolution spectrum analyzer that operates simultaneously on 2.4 and 5GHz bands.  This helps with automatic detection and identification of known sources of interference. It is 4 to 10 times faster and more accurate than other spectrum analyzers which helps reducing time onsite.

 

Another important aspect in troubleshooting is the ability to perform a wireless packet capture. Ekahau sidekick is designed for wireless professionals and allows to easily capture wi-fi packets for in-depth, expert level debugging.
