What is a Wireless Assessment?

Many don't realize it, but there is a true science to laying out a proper WiFi network that creates full coverage without over-investment in hardware. Planning is a key step that is often overlooked.  There are many factors throughout a facility or campus which will affect the strength and distribution of WiFi signals, ranging from the types of antennas being used, to the materials in walls and doors, to even structural elements such as the placement of water-carrying pipes.  

Too few WiFi access points, placed haphazardly without regard for the local environment, will result in "dead zones" that lack coverage.  Over-compensating by placing too many access points doesn’t solve the problem either.  Likewise, good WiFi implementation requires awareness of the radio frequency (R/F) profile of an area, what wireless devices are in use and on which channels.

In all cases, lack of proper planning usually results in significant and needless extra expenses.

What can it do for you

With a wireless network assessment, conducted by the experts at Hummingbird Networks, you can purchase your WiFi access points knowing you're getting the perfect number to cover your organization without over-spending on hardware.  You can feel confident that your WiFi network will be accurately planned, capable of delivering the speed and reliability that both your staff and guests expect.

What can you expect

When you bring in Hummingbird Networks to handle your WiFi network implementation, it starts with a custom assessment of your facilities.  You'll receive a complete report on your facilities and the unique challenges they may present along with a complete plan of action for creating an optimized WiFi network.

This includes:

  • Understanding your business operational needs
  • Predictive and/or on-site surveys of your physical structures with notes on aspects which will inhibit radio transmission
  • Passive and active radio spectrum surveys of your facility during a typical workday, accounting for sources of potential R/F interference
  • Plans for frequency and channel selections which will avoid dropped connections and eliminate R/F interference.
  • Creating a detailed site map correlating these findings, and marking optimal locations for WiFi access points where they will have minimized interference. 
  • Suggestions for hardware investments, such as areas where directional and/or high-gain antennas could "punch through" environmental interference.
  • Cost quotes on materials and installation costs, if requested.
