In doing some research for April’s feature story on wireless deployments, I came across an interesting difference of opinion when it comes to doing site surveys. Some of my sources are all for them, others are dead set against them. Why the split opinion?
Site surveys refer to the radio spectrum of your site, and looking at what signals presently exist that might interfere with providing WiFi coverage around your office building and campus. They also examine how many wireless access points will be needed to provide enough coverage so that all your users can receive strong enough signals.
