The term Site Survey derives from English and means “STUDY OF THE SITE”. In the field of wireless networks, studying the place means studying the positioning of the Access Points to be able to have an overview of the entire wireless network.
The Site Survey, as well as security standards, was not introduced immediately with the advent of WLAN. This is due to the small size and low performance of the first wireless networks.
Today Site Survey is essential if you want to create and manage a wireless network without encountering problems such as lack of signal, slow connection, extended latency or if you want to be sure of the compatibility of new devices with devices already existing. Last but not least, Site Survey saves a lot of time and money.
The Site Survey is not only intended for newly built networks, but for networks already in use, to go and find, and where possible, correct problems that affect them.
