The Different Types of Wi-Fi Survey

Predictive Wi-Fi Design, also known as Simulated, Virtual, Remote or Desktop Wi-Fi survey, is appropriate for buildings undergoing construction or refurbishment, to determine cable drop points, and to give an indication of the layout and costs of a new Wi-Fi network.

Using industry-leading software tools such as Ekahau Survey and iBwave Wi-Fi Suite, combined with our own unique tools and methodologies, we perform state-of-the-art predictive Wi-Fi network design for all environments.

Using your building floorplans or CAD drawings, we use software to model your building premises and simulation to design a Wi-Fi network that meets exacting standards and specifications.

Heatmaps and visualisations show predicted Wi-Fi Signal Strength, Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR), Data Rates, cell overlap and more.

It’s important to understand that the accuracy of predictive Wi-Fi design is limited, and that a follow-up on-site MAPT™ (APoS / APoaS) pre-deployment survey, or a post-deployment Verification survey, should always be performed.

For some Wi-Fi projects, Wi-Fi network design is best performed by placing real APs within the building – on tripods – and performing a Wi-Fi survey to evaluate the coverage, data rates and capacity provided by that temporary network.

Many Wi-Fi companies offer what they call an AP-on-a-Stick (APoS) Wi-Fi survey, where they place a single Wi-Fi access point in a tripod and survey the coverage provided by it – to a signal range boundary. The process is then repeated for another AP location.

LEVER’s MAPT™ survey methods – which we have developed over many years – are vastly superior to other companies’ AP-on-a-Stick (APoS) surveys.

There are many benefits in our advanced approach to Wi-Fi network design. As a result, we not only guarantee Wi-Fi network coverage, capacity and performance, but also that your network will cost less in CapEx and OpEx – thanks to our Optimised Wi-Fi Design process.

Passive and Active Wi-Fi survey methods can be used when surveying existing Wi-Fi networks and also when surveying with AP on tripods (APoS) – but using our superior MAPT™ methodology.

Most Wi-Fi surveys are formed using the Passive Wi-Fi survey method, whereas with Active Wi-Fi survey, the survey device (a laptop or tablet) connects to an Access Point and uses iperf to perform throughput measurements.

Active Wi-Fi site surveys may sound like the better option, but they can easily give misleading results.

Call us to discuss the Pros and Cons of Active versus Passive Wi-Fi survey.

If the performance of your Wi-Fi network is important, then you need Wi-Fi network verification and optimisation services to ensure your network provides the service expected by your mobile workforce.

If your Wi-Fi network was designed using Predictive, Simulated, Virtual or Desktop Wi-Fi design software, then a post-install Validation survey is essential.

LEVER perform independent validation surveys of wireless networks installed by other companies, to determine whether they deliver the coverage, capacity, performance, Wi-Fi roaming, QoS and reliability that’s needed.

Wi-Fi Health Check surveys are are designed to evaluate the operation and performance of an existing Wi-Fi network, especially when Wi-Fi problems are experienced, such as:

  • Poor Wi-Fi network design
  • Wi-Fi coverage black spots
  • Wi-Fi client disconnections
  • Wi-Fi Interference
  • Poor Wi-Fi throughput
  • Slow and unreliable Wi-Fi roaming

Our Wi-Fi Health Check and Diagnostic surveys are the most comprehensive in the industry, combining Wi-Fi heatmap survey, RF spectrum analysis, throughput testing, application and device testing, wireless packet capture, application and protocol stack analysis and much more.

Contact us to discuss any Wi-Fi network problems that your organisation may be experiencing.

Wi-Fi Network Optimisation is the process of analysing the design, operation and performance of a Wi-Fi network, and making cost-effective improvements to increase coverage, capacity, performance and reliability for Wi-Fi users.

Wi-Fi Network Optimisation begins at the Design stage, and this is where we add tremendous value by designing Wi-Fi networks that:

  • Deliver the Capacity and Performance needed at each location
  • Use the minimum number of Wi-Fi Access Points.

Even professionally designed and installed Wi-Fi networks are subject to changing conditions that may need routine auditing and optimisation to ensure the best return on your investment.

LEVER’s industry-leading knowledge and technical expertise enables us to deliver high value to our customers, whether it’s at the Planning, Design, Procurement, Verification or Support phase.

LEVER’s experience in outdoor wireless network design and survey goes far beyond most other wireless companies.

At the entry level, we survey for outdoor Point-to-Point (PtP) and Point-to-MultiPoint (PtMP) wireless network infrastructures using 2.4GHz, 5GHz, 24GHz, 60GHz and 80GHz unlicensed and licensed spectrum.

For more advanced use cases, our industry-leading City, Metropolitan and Campus wireless network infrastructure work includes Planning, Design, Survey, Tender Specification, Testing, Auditing and 24×365 Support.

Our outdoor wireless consultancy and expert design services have helped Councils and Enterprises cut costs dramatically, and to avoid the pitfalls of previous poor wireless installations.

Whether simple or complex, contact us to discuss your outdoor wireless network requirements.

Wireless Security Auditing is becoming increasingly important.

An increasing number of IoT devices are using multiple technologies such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, LoRa, LoRaWAN, Sigfox, Weightless, Ingenu RPMA and more, maintaining Cyber Security is becoming more difficult.

With everything increasingly interconnected, and with Cyber threats escalating, how do you make your organisation secure?
