How To: RF Site Surveys

At some point in your job, you’ll need to deploy a WLAN network. Don’t be fooled by equipment that states it is ‘self-configuring’ or ‘auto-negotiating’. Wi-Fi is very complex, and dozens of variables can affect the success of your network. A site survey is a crucial component in ensuring that these systems will work effectively in your WLAN deployment.

Site surveys are often the most important steps in a WLAN design, since the information gathered will be used to estimate not only how much equipment, cabling or power is required for the WLAN, but also where best to place the access points.
