wireless site survey checklist

A wireless site survey, also known as a radio frequency site survey or a WiFi survey is ideally the first step a company takes before starting a full scale wireless installation. Our wireless site survey checklist will help you plan for your desired wireless coverage and network capacity as well as other important factors such as roaming and quality of service. A wireless site survey can also be conducted after your WiFi equipment has been purchased and installed, though this is typically done if there are issues with the WiFi that the in-house IT team or another WiFi service provider just can’t figure out. A wireless site survey isn’t required but is definitely recommended if you want to make sure your wireless network installation is done right the first time.

There are two different types of wireless sites surveys – active and predictive. In a predictive site survey a wireless site survey company will collect your floor plans and will produce a heat-map highlighting recommended access point locations and expected signal propagation throughout the facility. This is a quick fix site survey and is more of a sales tool rather than an actual report with meaningful information. Predictive site surveys are easy to produce as long as you have a floor plan and a recommended access point model.

Many companies try charging exorbitant fees for predictive site surveys and shame on them for doing so. Most wireless equipment distributors will provide free heat maps to any customer that provides a floor plan so it should raise immediate red flags for you if a wireless service provider is charging for a site survey but never actually sending anyone on-site. Our wireless site survey checklist will help you to be well prepared to negotiate with any provider.
