Wireless RF Site Surveys
A wireless site survey, sometimes called an RF site survey or WLAN wireless survey, is the process of planning and designing a wireless network, to provide a wireless solution that will deliver the required wireless coverage, data rates, network capacity, roaming capability and Quality of Service (QoS). The survey usually involves a site visit to test for RF interference, and to identify optimum installation locations for access points. This requires analysis of building floor plans, inspection of the facility, and use of site survey tools.
As part of the wireless site survey, the effective range boundary is set, which defines the area over which signal levels are needed to support the intended application. This involves determining the minimum signal to noise ratio (SNR) needed to support performance requirements.
A WLAN wireless site survey can also mean the walk-testing, auditing, analysis or diagnosis of an existing wireless network, particularly one which is not providing the level of service required.
Cellular and RF Site Surveying
Our Cellular Wireless Site Surveys involve the use of professional measurement tools, such as spectrum analyzers, to ensure successful cellular coverage inside building for enterprise customers, and externally for service providers. In today’s cellular world, poor reception in office buildings, parking garages and airports can lead to missed calls, missed opportunities, and loss of revenue.
Many enterprise organizations do not have reliable and critical call coverage inside various buildings. White Horse Group can provide a detailed cellular analysis and use this survey to project your need for a DAS or Small Cell deployment to provide adequate coverage.
Regardless of where you are in North America, your industry, or your company size, White Horse Group can provide Wireless RF advisory services on time and within budget. Of course, a brief consultation will need to be done over the phone, but beyond that you can count on a White Horse Group expert to visit your place of business and get to the root of any wireless RF weakness fast.
