Wireless LAN site surveys are used to plan and design a wireless network.
During an ECS onsite survey, our network designers perform three types of wireless network site surveys, with the results from the survey given to the client with a detailed heat map to ensure coverage, labeling of AP locations, providing a Bill of Material and cabling diagrams.
ECS utilizes “test” wireless access points with the intent to check various locations for signal strength. Technicians will move across the work site with live access points and measure network statistics through ECS’s state-of-the-art survey technology, allowing them to collect and analyze WLAN metrics and/or RF spectrum characteristics from any point in the building structure.
Provides more detail of the network connectivity and performance. Typically this is performed to verify existing wireless installation or to validate and /or test new installations.
This is used to create a virtual representation of the facility being surveyed. A predictive can be done with wireless survey software that analyzes building materials, square footage, and the number of wireless users, types of applications, antenna models and other variables to provide a reliable predictive wireless plan for your site or facility.
