Wi-Fi wireless networks are everywhere. They are a critical component of most business infrastructures. They need to be examined, explained, and held accountable.

Our Site Survey provides advanced data collection and visualization capabilities that form a complete wireless LAN site surveying solution that allows you to visualize the radio waves and demonstrate the effectiveness of your WiFi coverage.
A wireless site survey, sometimes called an RF site survey or wireless survey, is the process of planning and designing a wireless network to provide a wireless solution that will deliver the required wireless coverage, data rates, network capacity, roaming capability and quality of service.
The survey usually involves a site visit to run tests to determine the presence of RF interference and identify optimum installation locations for access points. This requires analysis of building floor plans, visual inspection of the facility, and usage of site survey tools.
When conducting a wireless site survey, it is important to identify the effective range boundary, which defines the minimum signal levels required to support the intended usage of the wireless network.
