The Importance of a Wireless LAN Survey

Did you know that a survey is the most crucial implementation stage in performing installations of wireless LAN Networks?

Many survey techniques are used to determine how a Wireless Network is ideally designed. Most use heat map pictures overlaid onto site plans that indicate the signal strength, with a key showing what the colors indicate.

The wireless surveys can be achieved in several ways:

  • Passive On-Site Survey
  • Active On-Site Survey
  • Predictive Survey

If a survey is not performed, you may have a poor wireless network. Consequently you may have issues that can negatively affect your productivity such as:

  • Dark spots for coverage
  • Lack of Throughput due to interference
  • Insufficient access points for simultaneous users
  • Excessive number of Access Points leading to self-interference
  • Wireless network security concerns
