Have you noticed wifi dead zones in your office, warehouse, or store? Poor wireless connection can be a huge headache when operating any business and if you’re experiencing unresponsive, slow, or variable speed internet, it’s definitely time to schedule a wireless site survey.
Wireless Site Surveys Explained
Wireless site surveys are used to gain an understanding of how a space’s current wireless network is performing. Engineers do this by generating a site map that measures data transfer rates and overall connectivity to your wireless network. Wireless site surveys can also show you where your internet is falling short. For instance, if you’re in a large warehouse, your current wifi network might not support the same strength of connectivity throughout the warehouse. This signal drop off lets the site engineer/technician know that an additional access point (AP) is needed in that area.
How To Prepare
Before your site survey, you should summarize the problems you’re having and let the engineer/technician know exactly what the problem is and provide them with a blueprint of the building(s). This way they’ll know exactly what to expect before coming on site. It’s also a good idea to let your staff know that the survey is taking place because in some instances this could put a half to operations.
At some point, the technician/engineer may need to access your data rack and other access points, so ensuring they have easy entry into those spaces is paramount to keeping operations on track. Make sure any furniture surrounding these any access points is moved for easy access by your engineer/technician
