Find out in 60 seconds why the Ekahau Sidekick is the "all-in-one" solution for Wi-Fi analysis and troubleshooting.



    Ekahau Sidekick works with Ekahau Pro and Ekahau Survey for planning, analyzing, and optimizing Troubleshooting WiFi networks
    Seven internal antennas placed in optimal alignment, offer precise and consistent measurement accuracy. Supports the latest Wi-Fi standards, including 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6)
    Two internal enterprise-class WLAN adapters reduce the time for checking and troubleshooting on site by up to 50%.
    The speed of the spectrum analyzer is 4-10 times faster and more accurate than other spectrum analyzers. This ensures faster problem solving and more precise localization of interference problems.

Precise and Fast

  • Wi-Fi problems are not only caused by other Wi-Fis, but also by interfering non-Wi-Fi devices such as microwaves, cordless telephones and video transmitters.
  • The Sidekick has a high-resolution spectrum analyzer that works simultaneously on 2.4 / 5 GHz bands.
  • The analysis speed is 4-10 times faster and more accurate than other Wi-Fi spectrum analyzers. This leads to faster problem solving and more precise identification of fault problems

Perfect Interaction

  • Ekahau Sidekick connects to a laptop or tablet with the Ekahau Site Survey software installed.
  • The interaction of the software and hardware makes it possible to collect comprehensive data from every Wi-Fi network faster and more precisely.
  • Typical applications include Wi-Fi coverage, analysis, troubleshooting and optimization.
