hi,

i was assigned to survey a company site and they're planning to deploy a wireless network.

Aside from the barriers and metal objects that can reflect RF signal what are the common practice when surveying a site and what are the things to consider when deploying a wireless network?

thanks.

how the signal will need to be deployed, will you need a wide dispersal, or a directed signal to one location, as all of this will help decide what AP's, arials etc.. to use.

looks childish, but cisco have quite a good game to help understand wireless a little better, might help you;

Are you surveying a site, to see what their coverage is like? Or have you been asked to plan/specify an installation to provide a desired coverage? The two are very different.

I was assigned to specify an installation of wireless access point to provide coverage to a certain building location..

Hey Guys i think that one of the biggest difficulties to developing and applying a wireless network system is deciding where to put your access points.Many factors, such as rain, plants, and tangible surfaces, can impact the alerts from wireless routers.However, for any organization planning to set up or increase a wireless system, a site survey is a wise decision before the wireless is installed.Thanks a lot!!

I highly suggest when setting up a new wireless network to segregate the wireless from the wired traffic.
