Why make an appointment for a site survey

site survey

Avoid problems such as channel interference by conducting a wireless site survey. A site survey is important to gain information to guarantee your WI-FI coverage and network, which are channel of interference and which network area can work perfectly. NEPIC PTY LTD conducts site surveys with detailed information on areas and new development that have network coverage and if not, they install cables that are needed.

The main goal for conducting a site survey is to determine viable network cables and once this is established, it’ll help in knowing the right cables and equipment the site needs to be installed for network coverage. You also need to know which cables and APs people in your areas use so they don’t overlap with yours and cause channel interference.

Channel interference can be caused by a lot of things, even home appliances, so to ensure this doesn’t happen, APs need to be placed in an area where they won’t disturb home appliances, vise versa, this is why conducting a site survey is important, plus it helps you understand why network coverage might fail and how it can be prevented.

Types of site surveys:

  • Passive site survey: this survey inspects your existing access point and availability of network coverage. it gives an understanding on how the existing coverage works and its strength
  • Active site survey: this survey gathers direct information on coverage and network traffic, this is normally used in new wi-fi development areas
  • Predictive site survey: this survey is conducted on new developments that are to be built to check if the development will have coverage and cables it needs
