Packet capture made easy with Ekahau Capture and Ekahau Sidekick.

Easily collect the data you need to conduct advanced troubleshooting and in-depth analysis of tough to diagnose Wi-Fi problems. Ekahau Capture makes it possible for anyone to quickly capture Wi-Fi packets using Ekahau Sidekick. You no longer have to invest into dedicated and expensive equipment or fallback on complex and unreliable methods to perform packet capture.

Two is More Than One

Leverage both Wi-Fi radios in Ekahau Sidekick to capture on two Wi-Fi channels simultaneously so packets aren’t missed while devices roam between two access points. Or, capture on 2.4 and 5 GHz simultaneously.

Capture security threats such as mis-configured Wi-Fi security settings, exposed network or user information, unencrypted traffic, denial of Service (DoS) attacks

Capture to Optimize Wi-Fi Networks Performance

Capture causes of high channel utilization and calculate Wi-Fi traffic statistics such as retry rates, average data rates and frame type distribution.
