Ekahau announces it has signed an agreement with ZyXEL Communications to integrate the Ekahau Site Survey (ESS) Wi-Fi network planning and survey tool into supporting ZyXEL Wi-Fi access points and antennas.

ESS is a software tool for professional Wi-Fi network planning, site surveys, and administration. The new collaboration will allow users to design and analyze their networks based on the specific capabilities of ZyXEL devices.

ESS will now allow network administrators to automatically determine optimal locations and configurations for the ZyXEL access points, verify and optimize the network, and quickly troubleshoot network issues.

ZyXEL Wi-Fi infrastructure also is compatible with the Ekahau RTLS solution, providing a seamless migration path for deploying location-tracking applications.
