Professional Wireless Site Survey

Going Wireless? Get it Right the first time - Call us for Professional Wireless Site Survey 888-219-0207

A Wi-Fi wireless site survey, sometimes called an RF site survey is the first step in the deployment of a Wireless network (Wi-Fi and Indoor Cellular extension) and the most important step to ensure the desired operation at peak performance. Often this will be the one and only time an RF network is reviewed for optimal AP placements. In today’s world of increasing IoT and voice and video, your old Wi-Fi just will not function properly without this valuable professional service

A Wireless (RF) Site Survey is the process of planning and designing a wireless network, in particular an 802.11 Wi-Fi wireless network, to provide a solution that will deliver the required wireless coverage, data rates, network capacity (number of users), roaming capability and Quality of Service (QoS). The survey involves a site visit to run tests to determine the presence of RF interference and identify optimum installation locations for Access Points. This requires analysis of your building’s floor plans, visual inspection of the facility, and usage of professional site survey tools.

It is very important to perform a Wireless (RF) site-survey to determine the effects of the facility on the propagated of radio waves. It is also important to test that there is no interference that may present at some locations that may make the wireless network inoperable. This up-front planning and documentation facilitates the smooth implementation of your network.

Our engineers will conduct a detailed site survey of the building in preparation for deployment of the wireless equipment. The only true method for optimum site performance is to test empirically for proper placement of Access Points and type of antenna to be employed. There is no way to determine the distance that a signal will travel without a survey. Metal film on glass, leaded glass, steel studded walls, cement floors and walls with steel reinforcement, foil backed insulated walls, firewalls stairwells and elevator shafts are typical items that will reduce range. In a multi-floor building, it is necessary to do a three-dimensional profile.
