Special guests, Samuel Clements and George Stefanick join the show to discuss the Ekahau Sidekick with Rowell Dionicio and Jussi Kiviniemi.
Wireless site surveys have been performed with USB adapters for a long time. Many have had grueling battles with getting these USB adapters working, we’ve had them fail, and have seen varying inconsistencies between adapters. Or if you’re me, I nick my adapters all the time.
Recently, Ekahau came out with a game changer. It replaces all your USB adapters into a shoulder strapped, supercharged, all-in-one measuring device. As said on the product’s website, the Sidekick dramatically streamlines the site survey process by replacing and outperforming the previously-used USB hubs providing greater reliability, accuracy and convenience.
That’s our discussion in this episode regarding the Sidekick. How does it stand out in the field in terms of performance, reliability, and accuracy. The added benefit here is convenience.
In this episode, I start things off by asking why the development and release of the Ekahau Sidekick. You’ll get the response directly from Ekahau but additionally, we hear from two customers – Samuel Clements and George Stefanick.
Some of the reasons why they prefer to use the Ekahau Sidekick:
- Receive sensitivity dial
- Ease of use
Ekahau decided to build the Sidekick from scratch to produce a device capable performing excellent spectrum analysis and Wi-Fi gathering capabilities. Listen to the episode to hear more of our discussion.
One special treat, Jussi shows us what Wi-Fi sounds like.. Yes you read that right.. what Wi-Fi sounds like. You hear it in this episode.
And finally, Finnish Rap
