Optimized wireless starts
with a site survey.

When your current wireless network isn’t meeting your needs, you may find yourself needing a site survey and wondering: what is a wireless site survey? Network Zen site survey guru, Mike Fuerte, has the answer.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

What are the types of site surveys?

• Greenfield: Starting with a blank canvas or total replacement of existing. It does not take into account any existing AP locations for repurposing.
• Hybrid: A combination of active and predictive designs. A senior engineer completes the design onsite but does not physically stand and test each individual AP.
• Predictive: Utilizes floor plans of a facility to virtually recreate it remotely with a survey tool to estimate AP performance. We do not recommend this type of survey because it can be inaccurate without visiting the site location.
• Assessment: Onsite survey of the existing performance of a currently deployed wireless infrastructure to determine remediation steps needed to resolve issues or expand upon the existing wireless deployment.

What might a wireless network survey include?

• Senior engineer to complete the site survey, test each individual access point, identify possible risk scenarios, and use test radios to measure network performance.
• Access point detail listing showing AP type, antenna, mounting height, mounting options, IDF destinations, and anticipated cable lengths required.
• Customized heat map to visually depict areas of RF/WiFi coverage on both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands

What are the steps to completing a wireless network survey?

1. Receive the most recent floor plan for the facility and observe existing space.
2. Provide guidance on the desired outcome, performance, pain points, and goals for the wireless network.
3. If onsite, the engineer goes to the facility for the physical audit of the environment to test wireless or RF performance throughout the facility and identify potential risk.
4. Submit deliverable content, such as engineering notes, heat maps, access point placement maps, photos, etc.
5. Discuss next steps, timeline, and how the services will be deployed.
