This OptiView configuration guide will help you choose the right model for your requirements, and determine which measurement options, accessories and services to include with your analyzer.
Configure your OptiView XG Network Analysis Tablet
There are two essential choices in configuring your analyzer: 1) 1 Gig or 10 Gig wired analysis, and 2) with or without the AirMagnet Mobile WLAN analysis software. If choosing "WITH WIRELESS" then you will select the appropriate software models. The following chart illustrates these choices:
|OPVXG-BASE||OPTIVIEW XG, 1 GIG NETWORK ANALYSIS TABLET WITHOUT NPT FEATURE||This model has the Network Performance Test (NPT) feature disabled|
|OPVXG||OPTIVIEW XG, 1 GIG NETWORK ANALYSIS TABLET||1 Gig wired analysis only|
OPTIVIEW XG - LAN, 1 GIG NETWORK ANALYSIS TABLET
(NO WLAN CONNECTIVITY)
|For customers who cannot have WLAN devices*|
|OPVXG-10G||OPTIVIEW XG, 10 GIG NETWORK ANALYSIS TABLET||10 Gig wired analysis only|
OPTIVIEW XG - LAN, 10 GIG NETWORK ANALYSIS TABLET
(NO WLAN CONNECTIVITY)
|For customers who cannot have WLAN devices*|
|OPVXG-PRO||OPTIVIEW XG, 1 GIG NETWORK ANALYSIS TABLET WITH WIRELESS OPTION||Includes WFA and SXT|
|OPVXG-PROPLUS||OPTIVIEW XG, 1 GIG NETWORK ANALYSIS TABLET W/ALL WLAN OPTIONS||Includes WFA, SXT and WSP|
|OPVXG-EXPT||OPTIVIEW XG, 10 GIG NETWORK ANALYSIS TABLET WITH WIRELESS OPTIONS||Includes WFA and SXT|
|OPVXG-EXPTPLUS||OPTIVIEW XG, 10 GIG NETWORK ANALYSIS TABLET, W/ALL WLAN OPTIONS||Includes WFA, SXT and WSP|
*"LAN" models have the wireless adapters disabled at the factory. These are intended for customers who, by policy, are not permitted to have devices that have WLAN capability.
If desired, the wireless adapters can be enabled via a factory-supplied keycode at a later date; order model OPVXG-RADIO-ON.

Single-mode modules can be purchased separately.
WIRELESS ONLY MAINFRAME
If your needs entail ONLY wireless LAN analysis (802.11a/b/g/n/ac), but you prefer a dedicated tablet with multiple integrated radios over the use of a laptop or off-the-shelf tablet, the WLAN-only model of OptiView XG is an excellent choice. These models can be upgraded later to full wired analysis (via keycode upgrade, see options below).
|OPVXG-WL-PROPLUS||OPTIVIEW XG-WL-PRO WITH SURVEY PRO ADDED||Wireless Only XG|
|OPVXG-WL-PRO-UGD||Adds 1 Gig Wired Capability to a Wireless Only OptiView||if under MasterCare Support, this upgrade will require a change of support level|
|OPVXG-WL-EXPT-UGD||Add 10 Gig Wired Capability to a Wireless Only OptiView||if under MasterCare Support, this upgrade will require a change of support level|
