Wireless Surveys

Wi-fi is like electricity for business - if it stops working, work stops

What is a Wireless Survey?

A Wi-Fi site survey is an on-premises inspection to understand how your site’s wireless network performs and how to best improve the wireless environment.

Whether carrying out a survey prior to installing a new network or assessing an existing installation, our engineers will work in conjunction with your IT management team to discuss the project objectives, analyse the floor plan and inspect the premises before producing a survey report. 

Our worldwide team of trained and certified engineers will visit the site and undertake an initial onsite Wireless survey. They use specialist tools to accurately scan your wireless environment to collect detailed information. This data allows us to determine: 

  • Sources of radio-frequency interference
  • Levels of wireless coverage throughout the area
  • All signal strengths
  • Any obstacles onsite

What type of global wireless surveys do FNG carry out?

Active Surveys

When troubleshooting the connection performance of WiFi networks, we connect our Ekahau Sidekick to the network to record the not only the signal strength, but data throughput, RTT and more for the most accurate results. We then analyse the data to give us a complete picture of the wireless network performance.

Passive Surveys

Unlike the Active survey, a Passive survey does not interact with the network. Instead, we scan only the wireless  spectrum to measure the signal strength, noise level and detect any inteferers that may cause dead-spots.
