Well you can take those floor map images and then use that in WCS/NCS. There is no integration with importing floor maps as I know. You still have to define and build your campus and buildings, that is when you have to have individual images for each floor.

Cisco WCS/NCS integration with airmagnet

Hi,

Thank you for your replay.

As far as i know there is a way to export the plan from the Airmagnet and into the WCS/NCS.

there is an option in the Airmagnet Cisco Prime NCS/WCS export.

when i export the file it save it as a zip file, when i open it there is three folders inside, csvfiles images and xmlDir, when i import the the XML file i get the error:

"

Are you thinking about importing from AirMagnet to WCS/NCS Planner? That is what you can import AirMagnet too.

Re: Cisco WCS/NCS integration with airmagnet

Well you might want to also ask that question to AirMagnet or their community. Might be an issue with the specific versions you are using.

Re: Cisco WCS/NCS integration with airmagnet

This integration does work.  Your result here is to build an RF calibration model built from your actual Airmagnet Survey that you can use in WCS.  Specific steps are required:

1) Export site plan from WCS to your PC

2) Import unzipped files (.csv and drawings) into Airmagnet Survey Pro as a "WCS survey project"

3) Conduct your survey and save

4) Export your completed survey by selecting WCS export/Survey export from drop down menu

5) From WCS, import from Maps drop down menu .ZIP format

6) Select RF calibration model

7) Apply to selected maps

8) Select floor/campus/building and go

You also need to make sure you are running WCS version 7.0.164 or higher as well as Survey PRO 8.1

You can also build a site plan in Airmagnet Planner (map, walls, doors cubicals, etc) just like WCS Map editor and import into WCS.  This process does not build the RF calibration model, rather just the creation of the building, floor area and obstacles.

Thanks //art
