of a Site Survey
Why do you need a RF Site Survey?
Companies considering the use of wireless equipment,
either be a 900Mhz or 2.4Ghz platform 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 and qualified RF
engineers. Even if you are using omni-directional antennas,
radio waves do not travel the same distance in all
directions. Walls, doors, elevator 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, one should have an RF site
survey performed to understand fully the behavior of radio
waves within a facility before installing any wireless
The goal of an RF site survey is to gather enough
information and data to determine the number and placement
of access points that will provide the coverage required.
Coverage required usually means the support of a minimum
data rate in a given area. An RF site survey will also
detect the presence of radio interference coming from other
sources that could degrade the performance of the wireless
The need and complexity of an RF site survey will vary
depending on the size of the facility and the work that is
to be accomplished. A site survey is a good idea for the use
of any wireless device because without a survey, users could
end up with inadequate coverage and suffer from low
performance in some areas. The purchase of wireless
equipment is no small expenditure, so it is best not to
leave any portion of the project up to chance.
What are we going to do?
Our qualified engineers will come on location and perform
a RF site survey to determine the requirements necessary to
achieve optimal coverage. A RF analysis will be performed to
analyze possible RF interference and survey for best radio
coverage. An equipment placement layout will also be
determined for coverage and availability. In addition,
various options available will be defined in order to meet
your specific wireless needs. Once results are analyzed, a
site survey report will be submitted including equipment and
peripherals necessary to successfully implement a RF
