Wireless Site Survey

Predictive & Onsite Surveys - 100% Coverage.
 

4 Different surveys that will improve your wireless network: predictive model WiFi survey, a passive onsite WiFi survey, an active onsite WiFi Survey and the fault-finding WiFi survey. Each type of survey differs according to the site or your specific requirements

1 – Predictive Site Survey

A predictive site survey is a virtual survey of your site or facility that uses pertinent information about the site to plan the wireless network. The value to our clients is that the cost is extremely less than traditional onsite surveys and the time to complete the survey is reduced significantly.

3 – Active Site Survey

Active surveys are performed with the survey client associated to the APs used throughout the survey. When a client is associated, it performs all the tasks a typical 802.11 client performs, which includes rate shifting data rates as the RF condition changes and performs retransmissions. Active surveys are commonly used for new WLAN deployments because they provide the most details upon which to base a design.

2 – Passive Site Survey

Passive Site Surveys are most commonly used in buildings that already have a wireless infrastructure. Collecting the most comprehensive information from important WLAN characteristics and metrics, passive site surveys measure the signal strength and noise level of any active access points. interference.

4 - Fault Finding WiFi survey

The post-deployment or fault-finding WiFi survey is conducted on sites where a wireless network has already been installed. This type of quality-checking survey is usually required when the client has noticed specific issues on site. These issues could include voice-over WiFi (VoWiFi), video calls, dead spots or plain old throughput issues.
