wireless site survey planner tool for multi floor office building

Hi,

I'm looking a wireless site survey planner tool for multi floor office building to estimate the number of APs and location. Not the site survey after install APs.

AigMagnet is excellent for single floor but cannot provide multi floor scenario via planner feature even it merging capable with site survey after APs installation.

Any tools can provide the planner tool for multi floor office building?

Thanks in advance,

If you are looking for an AP estimate you can simply do the sq feet divided into the grade of wireless. For example

You have a 100,000 feet building. All 100,000 sq feet will be wireless.

Data 5,000 - 6.000 sq feet per AP or 100,000 / 5,000 = 20 access points

VoIP 2,500 sq feet per AP or 100,000 / 2,500 = 40 access points

I always like to pad it by another 10%.

I hope this helps …
