EVERETT, Wash., May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Fluke Networks has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan with its annual Customer Value Leadership Award for the company's AirMagnet suite of products. Companies use AirMagnet tools to design, deploy and troubleshoot network performance across the entire wireless lifecycle. Frost & Sullivan noted AirMagnet's particular value to companies as they migrate to 802.11ac.
"Fluke Networks identified early on the need for a complete test product that can assist customers in efficiently phasing the new 802.11ac gears into their existing wireless local area networks," said Frost & Sullivan Program Manager Olga Yashkova. "The company has an impressive footprint in the global test and measurement space, and its proactive approach to developing advanced and complete solutions for emerging technologies and standards demonstrates its desire to remain at the forefront of competition in the global wireless network performance management market."
As enterprise networks rely more heavily on Wi-Fi networks and increasingly face bandwidth and capacity challenges, IT is transitioning to 802.11ac for more reliable connections, better performance, and higher capacity. AirMagnet is the industry's first complete wireless lifecycle solution to design, deploy and troubleshoot 802.11ac networks accurately, quickly and more cost effectively.
"Moving to 802.11ac isn't simply a process of replacing old access points with new ones," noted David Coffin, Fluke Networks CTO and AirMagnet GM. "The new standard and technology, as well as burgeoning device density, require a more strategic approach to Wi-Fi network designs and upgrades. Organizations need to consider the entire wireless lifecycle, from network planning and installation to monitoring and troubleshooting. We are pleased that Frost & Sullivan recognizes the value of our approach to developing AirMagnet tools, and this award is especially meaningful because of its emphasis on real-world solutions that enable organizations to design and deploy networks that simply work and perform as expected."
AirMagnet Survey PRO (which includes AirMagnet Planner), is the industry's most accurate wireless design and site survey solution. It includes 802.11ac functionality to help IT teams effectively phase new wireless infrastructure into existing WLANs without blindly performing a 1-to-1 rip-and-replacement of existing equipment. AirMagnet Survey PRO also lets users deploy and validate 802.11ac networks based on true end-user experience by measuring real-world performance metrics using an 802.11ac adapter.
AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer PRO, the premier solution for mobile troubleshooting, analysis and auditing of Wi-Fi networks including 3x3 802.11ac traffic capture and analysis, enables IT teams to solve 802.11ac network issues correctly the first time, preventing costly repeat visits and—more important—minimizing user downtime.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in implementing strategies that proactively create value for its customers with a focus on improving the return on the investment that customers make in its services or products. The award recognizes the company's inordinate focus on enhancing the value that its customers receive, beyond simply good customer service, leading to improved customer retention and, ultimately, customer base expansion.
Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
