WLAN RF Design
The verification survey is another crucial phase of the WLAN deployment model. During this onsite survey, we validate the Pre-Install WLAN RF design to verify if the WLAN RF design meets the defined WLAN requirements and business needs. During this phase, all access points are installed, active and configured which give us the opportunity to analyze the overall RF environment as built.
Based on this analysis we will propose some fine-tuning recommendations (if applicable) that will optimize the RF environment for the requested WLAN devices and applications.
If Skyline Networks created the original Pre-Install RF design, we would be validating a "known" WLAN RF design. If this is not the case, we can perform a verification site survey to validate an existing "unknown" WLAN RF design to validate if it meets specific requested WLAN requirements or business needs.
If we need to validate an “unknown" RF design, we will need additional information regarding the original Pre-Install RF design its WLAN requirements or business needs. This information we gather through the RFI document.
The first step of WLAN troubleshooting starts at layer 1. We highly recommend performing a verification site survey as the first step in the WLAN troubleshooting process to identify and counter any Layer 1 issues before diving deeper into the upper layers if WLAN issues persist after the RF fine-tuning.
For this information gathering process we will provide you a Request For Information (RFI) document where you can quickly fill in all you’re WLAN requirements, no worries it will take only 5 minutes and if it’s too technical do please contact us, and we are more than happy to help you out ;-)
