Wireless Network Site Surveys & Heat Mapping
Conducting a wireless site survey for network installations
When it comes to wireless systems, detecting the existence of interfering signals and predicting the propagation of radio waves is nearly impossible without the use of proper test equipment. This is true even for systems that leverage omnidirectional antennas.
Radio waves do not travel the same distance in all directions due to the varying degree of attenuation caused by people, elevator shafts, doors, walls and other obstacles. These obstacles cause the irregularity and unpredictability of RF radiation patterns.
As such, businesses experiencing issues with their wireless network system should first have their site surveyed. When conducted by experienced personnel, a wireless site survey helps to pinpoint possible problem points and determine whether the network implementation and the number of access points provide adequate coverage for the facility or office space in question. Let's take a look at the steps involved in conducting a wireless site survey.
