When working on building your wireless network so that it will provide optimal coverage, you’ll need solid research and an understanding of radio frequency behavior at your location. The best way to figure this out is with a wireless site survey. It will reveal areas of channel interference and dead zones, and will help you tremendously when creating a solid network.
The main goal of a WiFi site survey is determining the feasibility of implementing a wireless network in a specific area, and finding the best spots for access points and other equipment like cables and antennas. With the help of a site survey, you will know what type of equipment to get and where to install it.
We now offer WiFi Site-Surveys and Heat-Mapping for our clients!
Efficiency-wise, your Wi-Fi network needs wireless antennas placed correctly and wireless channels assigned properly. We create and provide a comprehensive site map of your building, that shows a heatmap (heatmap shown above!) of your wireless network, and lets you see dead zones lacking sufficient coverage. We use this information to optimize your hotspot placements. We then adjust each individual channels’ load and decide how to use them better.
Thanks to our new troubleshooting visualizations, we can easily and quickly identify connectivity and wireless interference issues, find sources of excessive noise, resolve WiFi configuration problems, and provide you with automated professional advice on every issue.
