What is a WiFi Survey?
A WiFi survey is a vital part of planning and designing a fast, reliable and secure wireless network that supports your business.
If your network isn’t meeting the needs of your workplace, a number of factors could be the cause. In order to design a new network that is capable of meeting these needs, it’s vital to have a strong understanding of where and why your wireless is failing. This is where a wireless survey can help. A professional survey will identify existing and potential issues using the latest technology, giving you the understanding you need in a detailed report.
What are the Benefits of our WiFi Surveys?
A WiFi survey from certified engineers will give you the strong foundations you need to plan a high-performance network that is tailored to your business needs. Whether you’re diagnosing issues with an existing network or designing a new one, a wireless survey allows us to recommend a solution that considers the size and site of your business, interference, capacity, scalability, mobility, and network security.

Not sure where to start with your WiFi?
Improving WiFi performances requires a thorough understanding of how your wireless network is performing. Our WiFi engineers have vast amounts of experience in improving network performance, whether you’re looking to fault-find and fix, design a new network or maintain an existing one.
Our range of WiFi surveys
Passive, predictive surveys
Quick, convenient and affordable, passive – or predictive – surveys use your own insight as well as floorplans to create a simulated version of your WiFi network that takes square footage, wall types and user requirements into account. We then create simulated designs of your new network, and demonstrate live performance via WebEx with a network engineer.
Active, site surveys
Only a full site walk collecting live data will give us a full understanding of real-life WiFi performance at your workplace, factoring in interference from buildings, other networks, machinery/metal and other extenuating circumstances that affect end-performance. This enables us to design the perfect network for your organisation, guaranteeing optimum performance.
We always recommend a validation survey, especially if your design was done via a passive survey. We don’t consider your project complete until you’re happy with the end-performance, so a validation – or verification – survey irons out any issues and ensures optimum configuration. Again, these are affordable and convenient given they can be done off-site, remotely.
What to Expect from a WiFi Site Survey
In order to give you an in-depth understanding of your wireless network’s performance, our WiFi surveys begin way before we arrive on-site. Our Ekahau certified engineers work with you from the very first phone call to understand your business requirements and how effectively they are being met by your current network. Prior to visiting your site, we examine floorplans and map out a survey walk that will pinpoint where and why you are not receiving the performance you need.
During our site visit, our engineer will carry out portable spectrum analysis using Ekahau Survey – the market leading tool in WiFi survey equipment – to map wireless performance to your floorplan with precision.
Our engineer will also suggest remedial actions during their visit so you can see immediate improvement in performance.
We then analyse the data from our survey and produce a detailed, client-owned report that will give you a full understanding of your wireless, as well as a roadmap towards a high-performance network. Our ‘traffic light’ recommendations – short, medium and longer-term actions – will be bespoke to your business, marrying up your current and future requirements, budget, and performance-affecting factors at your workplace.
