Predictive Wi-Fi Design

Simulation Surveying

Off-Site Simulation Surveying

Designing for Future or Existing Buildings

We can provide a good estimate on the number of access points (APs) needed for your wireless network and the optimum AP locations to provide the coverage and performance you need without going on-site. This can be used to survey future buildings or to economically survey existing buildings if your budget doesn’t allow for on-site surveying.

We utilize simulation to produce simulated heatmaps based upon your particular floor plan and building materials, while also taking into account the APs, antennas, and Wi-Fi devices that will be used. In the end, we’ll have a full simulated visualization of the future Wi-Fi network.

We provide a full PDF report with everything the IT staff and installers will need:

On-Site Simulation Surveying

Hybrid Solution with Captured & Simulated Data

Utilizing simulation along with real on-site RF surveying can help reduce the total survey time when compared to a full on-site survey, while getting more accurate results than using only simulation. We’ll provide a better estimate on the number of access points (APs) needed for your wireless network and more precise optimum AP locations to provide the coverage and performance you need.

We utilize both the “AP on a stick” method and software simulation. For some areas, we temporarily mount an AP in an ideal location and then walk around with survey equipment to add its coverage to the survey heatmap. In other areas, we use the simulation to add predictive AP coverage to the heatmaps. In the end, we’ll have a full visualization of the future Wi-Fi network.
