  • FEATURES
  • REQUIREMENTS

A radically simpler way to survey, design and validate Wi-Fi networks.

Take iBwave Wi‑Fi® Mobile on‑site with you to collect survey measurements, capture site visuals to geo‑located pushpins, and start your network design. Save all of your site survey information in a single file in the iBwave Cloud where you or anyone on your team can easily access the file again to continue the design on either your mobile device or the more powerful PC version, iBwave Wi‑Fi®. When you’re done the design, take iBwave Wi‑Fi® Mobile back on‑site to validate your design with an active survey and troubleshoot issues with the design right there with you.

iBwave Wi‑Fi® Mobile Technical Specifications

Software Requirements

  • Android™ 4.4 or higher (** Android 9 Advisory)

** 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.

Hardware Requirements
Minimum

  • 1,2 GHz CPU Dual Core
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • Built-in rear camera

Recommended

  • 1,6 GHz CPU Quad Core
  • 2 GB of RAM

* 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.
