Dec 10, 2018 A WiFi heat map is a visual representation of how each WiFi access points radiate its radio signal. It will show you where the signal is the strongest and where it is the weakest. Some WiFi analyzers do include that functionality either built-in or as an add-on and many heat map tools are also available as stand-alone software.
One-Click WiFi Consulting Reports
Wireless network analysis reports are a great way to organize the data collected during a coverage analysis to provide the report to clients, as well as to save the data for a later review. However, creating these reports manually is both highly time and resource consuming. With Acrylic Wi-Fi Heatmaps, you will be able to use your valuable time on other important things while the software takes care of the most detailed and comprehensive reports on all of your site survey projects.
Just open the Report section on Acrylic Wi-Fi Heatmaps, choose the report type to create (Executive or Technical), customize the sections that you need, select report language and format, and download the document.
Coverage analysis reports can be created in .DOCX, .CSV, and .KMZ format, and they are available in Spanish, English, French and German.Forget about non-editable PDF’s. You will be able to
Perform wireless network analysis, optimization, and simulation with high-definition visual Wi-Fi heatmaps that take the guesswork out of network coverage and performance.
What is a Wi-Fi heatmap?
A Wi-Fi heatmap is a visual representation of the wireless signal coverage and strength. Wi-Fi heatmaps are generally overlaid on top of a building or facility floorplan to help give network owners a clear idea of where problem areas are located in relation to the collected survey data.
Plan more accurately
Design networks for your unique requirements with simulated heatmaps and validate with real-world testing.
Visualize your network
Remove the guesswork out of optimization and visualize your network performance with easy-to-understand heatmaps.
Get actionable outcomes
Find and fix coverage gaps that occur over time to maintain and optimize for a high-performing wireless network.
Creating Wi-Fi Heatmaps with Ekahau Connect
Heatmaps are a critical component of the Ekahau Connect suite of Wi-Fi tools. Generate simulated Wi-Fi heatmaps to test access point (AP) placement using Ekahau Pro in your initial design phase or connect your IPhone or iPad to Ekahau Sidekick and visualize real-time network coverage heatmaps from your site surveys with Ekahau Survey for iPhone & iPad.
Precise, plug-and-play Wi-Fi diagnostic and measurement device for professional survey results.

The industry-standard tool for designing, analyzing, optimizing and troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks.
Types of Wi-Fi Heatmaps and Visualizations
Displays the signal strength of the selected set of APs in dBm.
Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR)
Shows the ratio of the signal strength relative to the noise in the environment.
Shows how many APs are overlapping on a single channel in the given area.
Provides a summarized overview of the network based on whether defined network requirements are met or not.
Associated Access Point (AP)
Predicts which AP the client devices will be associated, or, if Hybrid Site Surveys have been made, displays the actual associated AP.
Displays whether the network meets the Capacity Requirements.
Displays channel bandwidth to better visualize your 802.11n/ac/ax network characteristics such as channel bonding.
Displays the channel of the AP with the strongest signal strength in each location.
Displays the potential rate at which the client device can communicate with the AP.
Displays interference/noise as a result of co-channel interference and other noise that may have an impact on performance.
Number of APs
Shows how many APs are audible in a given location.
Displays the relative packet loss % over the floor map, as measured from the last 10 packets.
Displays the theoretical maximum net throughput (excluding overhead) per location, given ideal circumstances.
Difference in Signal Strength
Shows the signal strength difference in measured values between the primary and secondary coverage of your design or survey in your network environment.
Difference in Number of APs
Shows the change in the number of APs between the primary and secondary AP location in your design or survey in your network environment.
Difference in Interference
Shows the interference difference in measured values between the primary and secondary AP in your design or survey in your network environment.
