Conducted an active wireless survey using Fluke’s AirMagnet survey tool. This survey was conducted at both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. Under the guidance of customer specifications certain criteria’s had to be met to accommodate their coverage needs. Once Access Point locations were determined details such as cable requirements, mounting type, height, and orientation was captured and a high resolution photo is taken.
A very detailed and extensive report was generated outlying all the results collected by the completed survey. Coverage heat maps of every individual location and overall areas give the customer a visual representation of the coverage and helps explain AP placement and density. Each AP is also designated to the closest communication closet as the report includes all the necessary details of these locations. Details include location, switch details, available ports, fibre details, UPS, conduit space, POE capabilities etc.
Spectrum analysis conducted at both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz of the entire facility which helped show channel utilization, noise floor, and unmanaged “rogue” devices that may be in service. A helpful tool in getting an idea of everything that could be active in these spectrums.
