Total IT Global’s Wireless Site Survey team conducts network planning prior to the actual building of the space, by reviewing floor plans and the physical environment, together with capacity requirements and WiFi standards. The team performs predictive surveys for enterprises, remotely, before they move into a new space, to maximise productivity and efficiency for the business. Using proprietary software and SOPs Total IT Global predicts how the wireless signals would propagate through a given space. Based on identification of potential interferences and overlaps and coverage-dead zones, the suitable access points (APs) are recommended for optimum performance. These can also be conducted on-site.
While active site surveys are conducted remotely, passive site surveys conducted physically, onsite, and only once the space is built. Here, technical experts from Total IT Global collect data for the radio frequency readings for both, the interior and the exterior of the building, to ascertain all physical factors that could impact network performance. Sometimes specific channels and networks, especially those used by other enterprises in the vicinity, are scanned for signal strength, noise levels, etc. This data is used to determine the access points (APs) and recommendations are made accordingly, during pre-deployment. Again, this type of survey too can be followed by a design validation exercise to corroborate the plan.
Total IT Global can audit an existing wireless network for an enterprise, too. Engineers conduct a professional site survey using proprietary tools to identify the exact issue(s) plaguing the network, like signal drops, interferences, data throughput issues, frequent disconnections. The exercise can involve an audit of other regular maintenance actions. These site surveys provide most accurate reports when conducted during business hours. The issues are identified, and solutions offered to troubleshoot them and/or enhancements are recommended. A business can use this type of survey to understand scalability when planning for growth, thus providing a great experience to users and visitors.
