Streamline your Wi-Fi network planning and design with the iBwave Wi-Fi® Suite.

The iBwave Wi-Fi® Suite gives you a radically more productive and collaborative way to work on Wi-Fi network design projects. With cloud connectivity across all products in the suite, projects can be easily opened in any of the products, any time. Start a survey and design on-site using iBwave Wi-Fi® Mobile on your tablet. Save it to the cloud so you or your team can easily open the files and complete the design in stunning 3D using the more powerful PC version, iBwave Wi-Fi®. When ready, send the project to your customer who can easily open and review it in iBwave Viewer, a simplified read-only version of the software for customers. The result? Easier collaboration, more productivity and happier customers.

* While iBwave Wi-Fi® Mobile should work on most Android™ based phones & tablets, we cannot guarantee that it will be compatible with all of them. For integration with 3rd party collection tools, you should first contact your respective vendor to determine device requirements.

** 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.
