As part of our process for designing a new or updated wireless network, we perform a site survey, which typically includes the following steps:
1. Walk through
VEI will walk through the property to gather information for a proper installation.
2. Building layout and construction
During the property walk-through, our engineers will identify the layout of the building, as well as the type of construction, to aid in preparation for a proper installation.
3. Identification of potential difficulties
During the property walk-through, our engineers will identify potential difficulties that may hinder the installation process.
4. Location points
During the property walk-through, our engineers will identify favourable locations to install the necessary wireless networking devices.
5. Signal Coverage
During the property walk-through, our engineers will test the signal strength of access points to ensure proper cell coverage.
6. Design Layout
From the information gathered during the property walk-through, VEI will create a design layout of the AP locations and areas that need additional cabling. This will information is shared with customer when agreement is signed.
