RF Site Surveys
Benefits of a RF Site Survey

A wireless site survey is a physical survey of your location to identify the best possible locations for the installation of access points (AP) to ensure 100% wireless coverage, along with maximum performance, within the desired area.
When considering the use of wireless equipment it is extremely difficult to predict the propagation of radio waves and detect the presence of interfering signals without the use of specialized test equipment. Even if you are using omni-directional antennas, radio waves do not travel the same distance in all directions. (See picture) Walls, doors, lift shafts, people, and other obstacles offer varying degrees of attenuation, which cause the radio frequency (RF) radiation pattern to be irregular and unpredictable. As a result, an RF site survey is absolutely necessary to determine the behaviour of radio waves within a facility before installing any wireless devices. It used to be accepted practice that if you wanted to deploy a serious 802.11-based network you had to do a site survey. Now, as the price for low-end access points drops below 100, some would-be network administrators are contemplating forgetting about time-consuming and expensive site surveys in favour of simply throwing more access points at any coverage problems. It sounds good doesn't it? Can't get a reliable connection in the corner office? No problem, just bring in a Wi-Fi access point or repeater near the trouble spot, and everything will be wonderful.
No, not really !

Instead of trying them on the fly, or simply buying access points and moving them around until everything works right, you could have just done a site survey in the first place. It doesn't matter how cheap access points get, the real cost in any Wi-Fi installation is network administrator and technician time. Like any other job, you save more time and money by planning out what you're building first rather than simply starting building and hoping that you'll make it under budget.

In a typical office building layout radio waves DO NOT travel the same distances even when Omni -Directional antennae are used. Warehouses tend to require full aisle coverage and depending on the type of stock (and level of stock held) have their own inherent coverage issues.
Prices for a Site Survey start from as little as 375 ex VAT per day.
