Wi-Fi Surveys

How do our Wi-Fi surveys benefit organisations?

  • Our highly-qualified Ekahau engineers use accurate capacity planning through real-world analysis and AI that studies user density, traffic patterns and anticipates future requirements
  • We combine real-world data and floorplans with AI tools to provide an interactive, visual approach to network design that goes beyond guessing
  • We input your network requirements (coverage, capacity, devices, channel config) to ensure your design delivers optimum, future-proofed network performance
  • We use our expertise to design a Wi-Fi network that delivers 100% coverage through optimum AP placement that’s right first time – so say goodbye to black spots and drop-offs

What do our Wi-Fi surveys cost?

Our surveys are always tailored to your exact requirements. Your wireless network is fundamental to your success, so we don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Our expert teams can turn around quick quotes – just get in touch.

What are the three types of Wireless survey?

Passive Wi-Fi surveys

Our quick, convenient and affordable, predictive surveys use your own insight as well as floorplans to create a simulated version of your existing Wi-Fi network so we can design a new one and demonstrate via WebEx.

Wi-Fi site surveys

Only an on-site walk, collecting live data will give us a full understanding of your real-life network performance. Our professional onsite surveys factor in interference from buildings, other networks, machinery, metal and other extenuating circumstances that can affect end-performance.

Validation surveys

We always recommend a validation survey, especially if your design was done via a passive survey. A validation – or verification – survey irons out any issues and ensures optimum configuration. These surveys can be done remotely.

What is included in a Wi-Fi site survey from Redway Networks?

Our WiFi surveys begin way before we arrive on-site. Our Ekahau certified, highly-qualified 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 with 4 tri-band radios and spectrum analysis at 50 sweeps per second – to map wireless performance to your floorplan with precision.

Our engineer will suggest and aid with initial remedial actions during their visit so you can see immediate improvement in performance whilst we get to work on your report.

We analyse the survey data and produce a detailed, client-owned report that will give you a full understanding of your wireless, as well as a roadmap towards a new, 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 the performance-affecting factors at your workplace.
