Wireless Surveying, Design & Deployments
Predictive wireless analysis is used when the plant floor, New construction space, or carpeted floor are not yet constructed and are used strictly for high-level budgeting purposes.
A passive wireless network analysis uses tools is to analyze the existing wireless environment, both inside and surrounding the intended coverage zone. The air is measured against signal strength, interference, devices deployed, and emitted signals.
APOS (AP on A Stick)
APOS site surveys are completed on site with the actual selected access point. The AP is placed in the air (using our retractable pole and portable battery pack) at the appropriate ceiling height and optimal location away from any obstructions.
An industrial wireless assessment is much more intensive than a traditional commercial wireless site survey. The production floor can contain anything from machines for heavy equipment, SGVs, Conveyors and other production equipment, creating interference and making it difficult to install new access points.
ACCESS POINT INSTallation
Access point placement is critical when it comes to your wireless network. During a physical wireless assessment, each location is reviewed to determine antenna type/placement and AP speciality mounting hardware and dropdown kits that never come in the box.
A wireless survey is an executive and corporate liability without the right software, technology and certifications. CM has invested tens of thousands of dollars and is trusted by some of the largest vendors to do their wireless surveys for corporate and industrial customers.
With the diverse wireless site survey options we can assess the needs of our customers and determine the right approach.
If a budgetary number is all that is required then a predictive site survey might be right for you. A predictive analysis is performed without any type of field measurements. We uses RF planning software tools that combine average building elements with access point RF traits to predict wireless coverage.
If your are not sure of the issue but something isn't functioning as it should, a passive survey combined with a network assessment will suite your needs. A passive wireless network analysis uses tools is to analyze the existing wireless environment, both inside and surrounding the intended coverage zone. The air is measured against signal strength, interference, devices deployed, and emitted signals.
If you have a brand new facility or looking to replaced your legacy wireless network then an active APOS site survey will do the job. During an active wireless network analysis, the wireless access point anticipated to be used for the final network deployment, is attached to a long pole enabling the reach to meet the height at which the equipment is expected to be deployed. The AP is then associated to the WiFi Network to commence the packet exchange. This process allows gathering of very detailed information. Actual network traffic, throughput packet loss, and physical (PHY) rates are all captured.
