New Network Wireless Survey
Conducting a wireless survey is essential to correctly implement a WiFi network with 99.999% availability. Too many WiFi networks simply do not work as intended or under-perform. Conducting a professional wireless site survey will save a business both time and money in the long term.
Using the latest industry tools, and techniques to map out wireless radio frequency coverage of an intended area; we then provide clients with complete documentation on all aspects of the survey. Only after a professionally conducted wireless survey, will customers be equipped to create a fully scalable and secure wireless network.
Detailed in the site survey reports (details below) a complete breakdown of the hardware required to achieve a successful wireless network. This can be of considerable value for network managers that need to allocate a budget in the future. We can conduct a survey with any wireless manufacturer's hardware in mind which is essential for the network design.
Wireless surveys display and record information from all the key areas of a wireless network including received signal strengths, access point locations, RF interference and noise levels. The reported information enables optimisation of ‘access point’ channels choices of antenna's, AP transmit power levels and locations creating a more effective wireless network.
Unique software and techniques work in any environment, supporting all WiFi (IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac) networks.
If required a wireless network prediction is performed in mapping out RF coverage of offices, saving the cost of initial wireless network viability analysis.
Spectrum Analysis / RF Interference
A full spectrum analysis will include detection, measure and recording of the presence of RF Interference that could degrade the performance of a wireless network. Interference such as microwaves, PIR sensors, Bluetooth and legacy wireless devices can have a profound impact on a wireless network.
- RF Interference
- Measurement of SNR
- RF power peaks
- WiFi Channel interference
- WiFi Channel Overlap
Wireless site surveys include the following:
- Detection, measure and recording of the presence of RF Interference that could degrade the performance of a wireless network.
- Calculate the WiFi supported data rates that can be expected throughout the premises.
- Access point locations
- Wireless bridge locations
- Antenna's and other wireless equipment.
- Co-location of WiFi access points with channel selection and reuse.
- Information such as; antenna selection, orientation and polarisation.
- Look for signs of, reflection, refraction, multipath, hidden nodes, dead spots etc.
Wireless site survey documentation includes:
- Detailed information on the data gathered from the survey
- Photographs the location of all wireless equipment.
- Maps of the WiFi RF coverage.
- Details of RF interference.
- WiFi Equipment list.
