Expert WiFi Survey
Passive & Active Wi-Fi Surveys
Active surveys are commonly used to validate an existing Wi-Fi networks' performance and roaming characteristics.
Passive surveys can be used to measure and test the entire Wi-Fi environment around you, not just your own network. Neighbouring Wi-Fi networks can and do affect the performance of your network. We can survey and graphically show the impact of this. Depending on the scenario, there may be options within your control to help minimise these effects. This can include optimising radio channels to avoid conflicts and moving access points to specific, better performing locations , based on the outcome of our survey.
There are many so-called "free" and low cost applications on the market that purport to make this job easy to do yourself. But we do not take shortcuts. Professional test equipment and solutions are not cheap or free. We use the NetAlly range of solutions including the Etherscope nXG. These solutions in combination with our experience, produces a report and data that you can reply on.
With its dual radios, our EtherScope nXG enables simultaneous passive and active surveys to gather critical site metrics and validate client experience and roaming with one survey.
As standard we will produce a heatmap report including critical results such as:
- Signal (dBm)
- Noise (dBm), SNR (dB)
- Co-Channel Interference
- Adjacent Channel Interference
- AP Coverage
- Min Basic Rate (Mbps)
- Beacon Overhead
- Max Tx, Max Rx Rates (Mbps)
- Max, Min MCS
