Pre-deployment Wi-Fi Network Planning with TamoGraph Site Survey 3.0

Christchurch, New Zealand: TamoSoft®, a leading provider of network analysis software, announced today its release of the next version of TamoGraph®, a professional Windows 7/Vista/XP application for conducting 802.11 a/b/g/n site surveys, analyzing vital Wi-Fi network characteristics, and modeling WLAN environments.

TamoGraph's key features include simple and fast data collection, automatic access point location, and comprehensive WLAN analysis with easy-to-understand visualizations of signal level, interference, access point coverage areas, data rates, throughput, and network issues. The application presents detailed information about every access point: channel, maximum data rate, vendor, encryption type, etc. It fully supports 802.11n, 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g networks. Detailed reports can be generated in both PDF and HTML formats.

In addition to the surveys based on actual on-site measurements, the newest TamoGraph version 3.0 adds the ability to plan WLANs that have not yet been deployed. This type of planning is called "predictive" or "virtual", because the Wi-Fi characteristics are predicted for the virtual environment model created by the user in an easy-to-use visual editor. The model uses built-in or custom-designed walls, floors, attenuation areas, simulated access points, and a large selection of antenna patterns.

By analyzing the model that matches the building's characteristics, TamoGraph helps determine the number, placement, and configuration of access points—all of which makes it much simpler for system integrators to deploy modern high-performance Wi-Fi networks and provide great RF coverage. The software supports both outdoor and indoor single- and multi-floor models.

TamoGraph Site Survey is available through www.tamos.com, as well as through a network of distributors and resellers. The license covers a year of free upgrades and technical support. A 30-day trial version, user manual, technical specifications, and data sheet are available for download from the TamoSoft website. The localized user interface includes English, Chinese, German, Russian, and Spanish.
