WI-FI Site Survey
A site survey is always performed first. A wireless site survey is a physical survey of the premises where the wireless network will be installed. This survey identifies optimal locations to place access points so the network can provide 100% wireless coverage and maximum performance within the desired area.
Before installing any wireless devices, we perform a Radio Frequency (RF) test in order to better understand the behavior of radio waves within a facility. This is recommended because various obstacles such as doors, walls, elevator shafts, and people might affect the radio frequency pattern, causing it to be irregular and unpredictable. The ultimate goal of the site survey and RF test is to help determine the number and placement of the access points.
