WiFi Site Surveys

Performance Networks / WiFi Site Surveys

What is a WiFi site survey?

A wifi site site survey is a physical or virtual survey of the premises where a wireless network will be installed, helping to visualise the wireless network coverage areas and data rates.

A wifi site survey or network audit is essential to the planning and design phase, prior to the wifi network installation of a wireless network in your premises or location.

Our wireless surveys help you design, fault find and optimise

We offer different types of wifi site surveys, dependent on your needs.

Each survey will include a diagnosing of any issues with your existing network and an inspection and test of your existing infrastructure to ensure it is fit for purpose and scalable for your business needs.

We’ll also complete an analysis of your existing coverage and a review of your vital services, software and apps to ensure they run without any issues. We can then design your network from the ground up with this in mind.

We’ll design a bespoke network for you

Our experienced engineers will carry out a wireless survey or network audit and analysis, which will identify any potential sources of interference, or any specific venue obstacles which may be affecting your wifi coverage.

We’ll look at all aspects of your building design and network design, and check the type of internet connection currently used at your site.

We guarantee coverage, overcoming any issue

We guarantee coverage to even the smallest handheld devices, if the network is installed to the specification detailed in our wifi site survey report.

Whether it’s high network congestion, building material, or local interference affecting your wifi signal levels, our engineers will design your network to overcome any identified issues.

All of our work is backed by our Performance Guarantee. Get in touch with us to find out more about our promise to you.

Option 1

Health check and fault-finding wifi site survey

The health check and fault-finding wireless survey is conducted on sites where a wireless network has already been installed.

This wifi site survey survey type is usually used where a specific issue has already been identified, such as slow video calls or voice-over wifi (VoWiFi), dead spots or throughput issues. Our engineers will visit your site to fault-find and check your wireless network is functioning as intended.

We recommend this survey type is carried out on a regular basis to prevent any long-term issue with your wireless signal or network.

Option 2

Predictive model wifi site survey

The predictive model wifi site survey differs from the other types as it is essentially a virtual survey. It relies upon high quality building plans to enable us to properly assess the requirements.

Working with Computer-Aided Design (CAD) drawings of the building plans, we’ll use sophisticated software to build up a 3D model, setting the different floor and wall materials to provide an accurate virtual picture of your site.

The benefits of a predictive model wireless survey are that it provides a quick, cost-effective and practical estimate of your site’s requirements, which causes minimal disruption to your business activities.

However, it can’t account for onsite issues such as cabling paths, or local interference sources.

Option 3

Onsite design wifi site survey

Though the predictive model wifi site survey can give a reliable estimate of your site’s requirements, the pre-deployment wireless survey is based on-site in order to give a comprehensive understanding of your site’s requirements.

One of our engineers will visit your site to conduct what’s known as an access point-on-a stick survey.

Our engineers will bring a range of sophisticated equipment including an access point (AP) attached to a tripod, which is connected to a power source. This then allows the engineer to position the AP correctly before taking measurements to determine the wireless coverage area, signal strengths and anything else that may interfere with the wifi signal.
