„I get involved in some of the toughest Wi-Fi designs out there. We just did the Mobile World Congress Wi-Fi network that served 22,000 simultaneous users. Ekahau Site Survey was my Wi-Fi planning tool of choice there, as it always is. It’s the quickest to use, and provides superior 3D planning accuracy. Oh, and they’re friendliest bunch of folks out there – helps when you need customer support.”
