Our Process

Because we only work in the IT channel with channel partners, we ask for a request to conduct a wireless site survey to be raised with one of our Sales Account Managers. From there we can view the Scope of Works (SOW) and work with our internal Service Delivery team to allocate the relevant global resource for the survey using specialist H2:wireless site troubleshooting software. Our Service Delivery team is available for you and your team 24x7x365, any time of the day or night.

What are Wireless Surveys?

A wireless site survey is an onsite survey visit by a trained and certified WiFi engineer. During Wireless Surveys for New Networks, the engineer will use software such as Ekahau or AirMagnet to test for RF interference and to identify the best installation placement for wireless access points (APs). This will also involve a floor plan analysis, an inspection of the facility, discussions with the IT management team and the use of site survey tools.
The surveys are used to collect vital information about the wireless environment to understand where the placements of APs should be during pre deployment or to identify areas of weakness within the wireless environment.

What Steps are involved during an onsite Wireless Network Site Survey?

1. Questions about the end user’s business

  • What devices are being used & how many are there of each device?
    • The make, model and amount of devices, for example, desktops, laptops, printers, mobile devices, tablets, VOIP phone devices, scanners etc.. knowing how many devices need to be connected allows for capacity planning of the number of APs required to run the network
  • What is the wireless network being used for and what applications will be running?
  • Does the planned AP placement cater for the type of applications that need to be active?
  • What preferences does the end user have regarding the manufacturer of the equipment?
  • If we are carrying out a Network Health Check Survey, what issues have been causing problems prior to the survey?

2. Information about the layout of the facility and the building

  • CAD drawings and detailed building plans and maps help our software to analyse the layout and building materials used that will determine connectivity throughout the facility.

3. Site Visit to analyse and test

  • The onsite engineer will need access to the Communications Cabinet and will do an audit of all the hardware equipment located there.
  • The cabling will also be documented
  • Existing WAPs will be audited
  • A walk through of the whole building using the analysis equipment to determine any areas of interference from wireless and non wireless devices.
  • APs will be placed. The engineer will take readings using the Ekahau or AirMagnet site survey software.
  • A Network Interface Card will carry out a passive wireless survey and another will do an active wireless survey
  • The engineer will collate and concisely report the data findings to the onsite contact person.
