Wi-Fi network planning WiFi network site survey design and deployment


We Plan, Site survey, Design, Deploy & Maintain Wi-Fi Networks Faster, Better and Less costly !

Wi-Fi Network planning service

At this stage, a site survey is necessary in order to verify that the a real-world environment. Wi-Fi characteristics are predicted for the virtual environment model ( floor plan ) created by the Innova data engineer . The model uses built-in or custom-designed walls, floors, attenuation areas, simulated access points, and a large selection of antenna patterns.

In a greenfield deployment, it is vital to find the optimal number of access points (APs), AP locations and configurations.Innova Global  Site Survey automatically creates a high-performance network plan that meets each user’s requirements (such as VoIP ) using floor plan  and actual filed data such as facility square footage, physical barriers , walls , ceiling height, floors, elevators, air condition, fire walls, cement walls, shelves and signage....etc.   

Sometimes there may already be a network in place, but it requires increased capacity, coverage or both. With Innova global  Site Survey, Engineer can plan for network expansions. Innova WiFi Network plan supports 802.11a/b/g/n

A wireless site survey service

A wireless site survey is the physical process of determining access point (AP) locations, channel selection, and power levels necessary to allow for constant connectivity of your mobile device fleet to your network. Wireless Site Survey Guaranteed wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling 802.11 wireless coverage throughout your entire facility. 

Pre-deployment surveys service

At this stage, a site survey is necessary in order to verify that the network plan works well in a real-world environment. Placement of temporary access points and a quick survey of the resulting WLAN characteristics allow an engineer to fine-tune AP and antennae placement, determine the optimal number and types of APs and antennae, and avoid poor coverage zones.

Post-deployment surveys:

Once a WLAN has been deployed, a complete verification site survey is necessary to ensure that the WLAN performance and coverage meet the design requirements. At this stage, the Wi-Fi equipment placement is finalized and a site survey report should be generated so that the historical records can be accessed at any time in the future.

Regular, ongoing surveys service

Maintaining high performance and coverage requires regular "check-up" surveys. New users, new equipment, site expansion, neighboring WLANs, and other factors can adversely affect your WLAN. It should be monitored on a regular basis.

Our site survey process 

  • Innova Global  field engineer is dispatched to client facility with all the networking gear required to complete a site survey of your entire facility. 
  • We survey with the same hardware you plan to deploy, whether it be Aruba, Meraki , Meru , Cisco, Motorola, or other.
  • While on site the  Innova Global  field engineer  uses a lift to temporarily install access points and antenna where wireless coverage is needed ( warehouse, office , temporary office, lobby ...etc. )  . Antenna type chosen for each location to optimize coverage area.
  • The  Innova Global  field engineer  takes signal strength and channel interference readings from the ground while the hardware is installed above, and broadcasting.
  • Using the signal strength and channel interference indicators, a coverage area for that specific AP location can be determined.
  • The process is repeated throughout your facility until you have wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling wireless coverage.

Network Health 

Wi-Fi is typically built for a certain purpose or several purposes, such as VoIP, web browsing, or location tracking. With Network Health, you can, with a single visualization, display whether the network meets your requirements or not.

Network Issues 

Network Issues complements Network Health by showing the requirement that is below the threshold level at each location. Whereas Network Health answers the question "Does it work?", Network Issues answers the question "If it doesn't work, why?"

Coverage, Overlap and Performance Data Rate 

Data Rate is the highest possible speed (measured in megabits per second) at which the wireless client devices will be transmitting data. Typically the true data throughput is about half of the data rate or less.

Number of APs

Number of Access Points indicates the number of access points audible at each location.

Signal Strength 

Signal Strength - sometimes called coverage - is the most basic requirement for a wireless network. As a general guideline, low signal strength means unreliable connections, and low data throughput.

Signal To Noise Ratio 

Signal-To-Noise Ratio indicates how much the signal strength is stronger than the noise (cochannel interference). Signal must be stronger than noise (SNR greater than zero) for data transfer to be possible. If the signal is only barely stronger than noise, you may encounter occasional connection drop-offs.

Strongest Access Point 

Strongest Access Point displays the access point that is the strongest per location. Strongest access point can thus be used for load balancing purposes, and to predict roaming patterns of client devices.
