The goal of all of wireless site surveys is to supply detailed information that addresses the site’s frequency coverage.
Before implementing or attempting to optimize a wireless network, you’ll want to know all the possible areas of interference, AP placements, power considerations, and wiring requirements that are needed. A wireless site survey can provide all of this information and more, so you’ve got the tools you would like to style , implement, and optimize your wireless network.
What WiFi standards got to be covered during a site survey?
The most common WiFi standards in use include 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, and 802.11ac. The 802.11b and 802.11g standards both use the two .4GHz band and are the foremost common supported standards. The difference between the 2 standards is performance with 802.11b supporting 11Mbps and 802.11g supporting 54Mbps. subsequent important standard is 802.11n supporting both the two .4GHz and 5GHz band and with increase performance of up to 600Mbps. the most recent standard is 802.11ac supporting the 5GHz band and with increase performance of up to 7Gbps. it’s important to notice that a lot of new low cost personal computers (PCs) and tablets don’t support 802.11n or 802.11ac standard. Many companies may have a good range of WiFi devices and wish to support many generations of WiFi devices from 802.11a through 802.11ac and beyond. A site survey must cover all WiFi standards used. don’t assume a site survey for one standard is valid for an additional .
