Expert Surveys

Wireless Networking Surveys

To ensure a reliable, secure and accessible wireless network, it is critical to have your premises properly surveyed. The type of survey necessary is dependent on the nature of the site in regard to the size, structure and required application. Surveys are conducted by our experts using AirMagnet with spectrum analysis to create detailed heat-maps of your premises.

What is an active survey?

Active surveys take place on a live wireless network. They use your existing APs to create a heatmap of your current WiFi coverage whilst measuring things like round-trip time, throughput rates, packet loss and bandwidth. We then use specialist software to perform a series of tasks such as sending/receiving large files and ping tests. Using the results of this survey we can produce you a detailed report that includes heatmaps of your coverage.

 

When would you need an active survey?

You might need us to conduct an active survey if you have issues that need troubleshooting, or you want to upgrade an existing network. The survey results will reveal any gaps in your coverage.

Active surveys can also be used as post-installation surveys to ensure everything is working as intended.

What is a passive survey?

When we conduct a passive survey, we use an AP and a wireless device (typically a laptop) to generate data about your Radio Frequency (RF) environment. We then take the results and use intelligent software, along with a schematic of the area, to create a wireless network design.

 

When would you need a passive survey?

A passive survey is the best possible option if you are looking to create an entirely new network that will be required to cover a large area. Unlike active surveys, they do not require the presence of an existing network in order to be carried out, therefore they are ideal for new builds or refurbishments.

What is a predictive survey?

Predictive surveys are carried out remotely by using a plan of your premises and applying simulation tools. We use intelligent software to account for signal loss and reflections from things like walls or large objects and uses ‘virtual access points’ to create a design for you that maximizes coverage.

 

Why would you need a predictive survey?

Predictive surveys are usually conducted when carrying out a physical survey is not a viable option; this could be due to strict time or budget constraints. Predictive surveys can be carried out remotely and are therefore usually the cheapest option. With smaller locations, a predictive survey is often all you’ll need.
