Wireless Site Surveys

Let ISDM help with your wireless site surveys. If you have existing problems with your WiFi network, we can survey the site to determine coverage, signal to noise ratio and interference from the current provider. ISDM will then produce a detailed report of the wireless site survey with recommendations to remediate the issues being experienced.

We understand each business is unique, so we offer different types of wireless site surveys depending on your size and sector.

What Is A Wireless Site Survey?

A wireless site survey is a survey used to plan where a site’s WiFi will be installed. A wireless site survey must be conducted when a new site is being taken over or if new WiFi lines are being installed.

The most optimum WiFi points are found to make the most of your wireless and potentially cut your wireless costs. There are several types of wireless site surveys that cover all different areas.

The Three Different Types Of Site Surveys

Predictive Site Survey

Predictive site surveys are used when a business is moving into a new space. Before any furniture or equipment is added to any new office or site, a wireless survey technician will need to assess the area. This ensures the site survey will be accurate to the space, including proposed equipment checks.

A WiFi standard will be used for the area, so we can predict the best place to incorporate the APs (access points). Access points are placed on the site’s blueprint; using state-of-the-art wireless surveying software, we can pinpoint how good these access points will be.

However, it’s not just the access points and equipment that should be preempted, but also how the WiFi will be used. Certain activities need higher usage, such as video uploaded or streaming. This needs to be at the forefront of the predictive site survey planning to provide complete coverage.

Passive Wireless Site Survey

A passive site survey is conducted several times after the new site is built and in use. A Passive Site Survey is primarily used to report the new installation data, such as signal strength at each access point location and the neighbouring wireless frequencies.

Using this type of wireless site survey usually shows any issues with small drops in signal, before any users actually notice. A passive survey means glandular analysis can take place to provide a bespoke network design throughout.

Active Wireless Site Survey

Active wireless site surveys test a long list of requirements for each access point, or a set of access points. Testing plenty of aspects of each access point on a certain amount of devices, depending on your sector.

Upload and download strength is also tested in an active wireless site survey, especially if this type of activity is heavily used within your business.

Why Do I Need A Wireless Site Survey?

Decrease WiFi Costs

Having a site survey means you won’t have to pay twice for your WiFi services. Opening contracts with providers – before you know how your access points and WiFi will behave – is a poor decision for both your staff and your bottom line. Peace of mind with a wireless survey is priceless.

Site Infrastructure Issues

Surveying a site’s infrastructure beforehand means that there will be limited issues once you’re moved into the site. Issues that can crop up without a site survey can lead to dead spots within the WiFi signal. Your staff members won’t be able to access wireless in certain areas, rendering office spaces useless.
