Fluke, Cisco Partner to Help SMBs Deploy Wireless Networks

By Jessica Binns, Contributing Editor — May 09, 2012

Fluke Networks has teamed with Cisco, the worldwide leader in networking, to offer customers AirMagnet Planner for Cisco Small Business. The solution will help Cisco small business resellers meet the challenges associated with deploying and planning an 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless network, as well as help organizations better address emerging performance challenges associated with the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) phenomenon.

AirMagnet Planner offers predictive modeling to determine the ideal quantity, placement and configuration of Cisco Access Points (APs) for optimal security, performance and compliance. AirMagnet Planner for Cisco Small Business can take into account the wireless properties of more than 10 Cisco Small Business access points and wireless routers, including the newly released WAP121 and WAP321, to accurately design the Cisco Small Business network for maximized coverage and performance.

"Our customers face many of the same issues as enterprise deployments when rolling out a new, or migrating an existing, wireless network. This includes the significant increase in mobile device usage at work and the use of bandwidth-intensive applications," said Scott Young, president of Houston-based PennComp LLC, a Cisco Small Business Partner.

"Fluke Networks' AirMagnet Planner for Cisco Small Business enables our customers to use a professional, enterprise-class solution specifically tailored to the Cisco Small Business environment," he added. "This new solution for the small business market is a welcome addition as the success of a wireless network is dependent upon a solid wireless assessment and planning tool."
