In This Episode – Ekahau Site Survey with Jussi

Interview with Jussi from EkahauI was blessed with Jussi’s presence in San Jose. We decided to do the podcast while taking a walk to Levi Stadium.

This episode is about Ekahau Site Survey and I manage to ask questions about using the application. I’ve been using the Ekahau Site Survey for about 2-3 years and have had questions on how to get site surveys precise.

At the end of the episode I ask about Ekahau Site Survey for OS X because that’s all we care about, right?
