Wireless site surveys are procedures designed to detect and prevent issues like signal interference in wireless networks and ensure the best placement of access points (APs). When WiFi connections aren’t performing well, they help assess the WiFi performance and see where the WiFi can be improved. For larger networks, they are essential for ensuring a healthy connection across a broad scope of systems.
A wireless site survey technician is someone who is trained to carry out a wide range of different site surveys. These include passive surveys looking at local network traffic, active surveys logging data transmission rates and success rates, and predictive surveys designed to look at potential improvements.
