WLAN RF Design
The verification survey is another crucial phase of the WLAN deployment model. During this on-site 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 gives 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 the specifically 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 and business needs. We gather this information 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. This is used to identify and counter any Layer 1 issues, before diving deeper into the upper layers if WLAN issues persist after the RF fine-tuning.
To gather all of this information, we provide you with a Request For Information (RFI) document where you can quickly fill in all your WLAN requirements. No worries, it will only take 5 minutes and if it’s too technical, do not hesitate to contact us, as we are more than happy to guide you through the document!
