Fast-track your network designs by getting a head start on-site.
For accurate network designs that are constructible the first time, start with accurate site survey information. iBwave Mobile Planner is a powerful and intuitive mobile app that significantly expedites the design of networks. Take it on‑site with you to collect RF measurements, capture site aesthetics, and start a preliminary design using the automatic access point placement functionality. Save all of the information to a single file and save it to the cloud for your design team back at the office to open and finish the design in iBwave Design.

iBwave Mobile Planner Technical Specifications
- Android™ 4.4 or higher (** Android 9 Advisory)
- 1,2 GHz CPU Dual Core
- 1 GB of RAM
- Built-in rear camera
- 1,6 GHz CPU Quad Core
- 2 GB of RAM
** Android 9 advisory regarding Wi-Fi passive surveys
- Due to a limitation of Wi-Fi scanning in Android 9, we advise you not to upgrade your Android mobile device to Android 9 for time being.
- In Android 9, Google has made improvements for battery life but they also severely limited the Wi-Fi scanning rates for applications (such as iBwave Wi-Fi® Mobile).
- Therefore if you upgrade to Android 9, the passive Wi-Fi survey and Wi-Fi scanning features of iBwave Wi-Fi® Mobile will become unusable.
