Wireless Surveys

A wireless site survey, sometimes called an RF site survey or wireless survey, is the process of planning and designing a wireless network, to provide a wireless network that will deliver the required wireless coverage, data rates, network capacity, roaming capability and Quality of Service (QoS). We offer 3 types of wireless site surveys:

 

Pre-installation

An access point layout is determined onsite by positioning an access point and measuring its coverage for the required usage (data, voice, …). The survey is always performed with the access point to be installed. At the end of a pre-installation site survey a report is provided detailing the results of the survey; access point position, wireless coverage, RF interference and AP installation instructions. We can perform surveys with Aerohive, Aruba, Cisco, Meraki and Ruckus. If the vendor you require isn’t listed, please contact us.

 

Post-installation

During a post-installation site survey the existing wireless infrastructure is measured and is tested against the requirements. At the end of a post-installation site survey a report is provided detailing the results of the survey; access point position, wireless coverage, RF interference and recommendations.

 

Predictive

It’s not always possible to perform a pre-installation site survey (building under construction/design phase), so a predictive site survey is performed. A wireless design is created in Ekahau based upon the floorplans provided. At the end of a predictive site survey a report is provided detailing the results of the survey; access point position and wireless coverage. A predictive site survey should always be verified by a post-installation site survey, once installed.

 

ATEX

Our wireless network engineers have profound experience in surveying offices, warehouses, production areas, clean rooms and ATEX zones. For ATEX zones we have our very own ATEX certified tablet to comply with EX regulations.
