Wireless Protection: Site Monitoring Tool
Implement a WiFi Site Monitor showing a "map" of all connected APs and Clients around you, and rogue APs. Plus show more detail of WiFi infrastructure like a spectrum of the 2,4GHz band, to identify interference and non WiFi devices that will lower connections speeds more easily.
The Sophos access points AP30 and AP50 are included in Ekahau Site Survey V6. With this WLAN planning tool (and a spectrum analyzer) you can get a detailed overview of your WLAN. Please let me know your feedback.

This is a good idea, one I would like to see.
Yes, since Version 6.0.1.
This is the leading third party tool for this task, this is nothing for an UTM (the UTM is not a planning and visualization tool).
We are using Ekahau and because of this hint, I looked after the AP30 and AP50. Until now I have only played with it, but not tested for real projects. For the future, we can also plan WLAN infrastructures not only with cisco APs, but also with Sophos APs. Thanks Sophos!
While it is nice that is it included in a third party tool, there are plenty of third party tools that could be used in a similar manner. I like the idea of the map being integrated into the UTM console so that when I click on AP management I can choose the locations (if multiple sites) and then select based on floors and see the topology with signal strength and interference for each AP all at once graphically.
In some hospital they use automated trolley to deliver meal tray or drugs to patient.
these trolley are managed and controlled by wifi.
so yes a "map" will be usefull, to knows where they are located in the building.
