Ekahau Sidekick 2 new features:

4 Enterprise-Grade Tri-band Wi-Fi Radios

Capture more data in less time with Four tri-band Wi-Fi radios that scan 2.4, 5, and 6 GHz frequency bands faster than the original Sidekick scans just 2.4 and 5. Sidekick 2 is nearly 100% faster for dual-band surveys and 33% faster when surveying tri-band networks.

9 Custom Wideband Antennas

Get unbeatable accuracy and reliability with 9 custom-designed 3D antennas positioned for optimum omnidirectional measurement consistency. You can trust that the data collected is always accurate and actionable by eliminating variances between devices.

50 Sweeps/Second Spectrum Analyzer

See the invisible Wi-Fi spectrum from 2,400–7,125 MHz in brilliant high definition with the fastest refresh rates, so you’ll never miss a microsecond of interference. Capture quicker interference events and zoom in to the smallest details with 4X better resolution bandwidth.

Survey All Day Battery

Built with the largest battery allowed on commercial airlines, Sidekick 2 powers more than a full day of onsite surveying on a single charge and can even be topped off for an extra 4 hours of active use with just 1 hour of charging.

Whisper-Quiet Active Cooling

The active cooling system in Sidekick 2 is whisper-quiet and maintains optimal operating temp in harsh conditions. 

Now Featuring USB-C Connectivity

Charge faster and with improved reliability thanks to a USB-C connection port that’s always the ‘right way’ no matter how you plug it in. The snug fit and reinforced cable management channel takes the pressure off your connection and reduces the chance of an accidental mid-survey disconnect.
