Slow or spotty Wi-Fi is a hassle in today’s technological age, but it doesn’t have to be a problem in commercial buildings, where Wi-Fi speed is key to efficiency. Achieving the best Wi-Fi speed throughout an office space requires the strategic placement of wireless access points and an accurate Wi-Fi measurement to determine the design. Having the best technology and skill to aid in this goal will avoid Wi-Fi disasters in your office.
Accurate Wi-Fi Network Design
A Wi-Fi network design includes strategically-placed wireless access points. Every part of the area needs sufficient coverage; it is a balance between having enough access points to deliver Wi-Fi and not placing too many APs in the network, which could cause radio interferences. A Wi-Fi designer can determine the best layout with the help of an accurate Wi-Fi design tool.
Accurate Signal Strength Readings
Accurate signal strength readings are vital to an office’s Wi-Fi design. Different measurement devices have varying levels of accuracy, and a less-accurate tool can have disastrous consequences to the network. An excellent measurement will produce a heatmap showing where Wi-Fi is available and how strong the signal is at any given point. It will consistently pinpoint the radio wave’s strength, no matter what direction the access point is facing. An accurate map informs an excellent design.
The Risks of Poor Signal Strength Readings
A lower-quality measurement shows a broader range of signal strength, may not read the same area consistently, and generally fails to give a correct picture. The result is a wrong design diagnosis. If the heatmap shows too little data on where Wi-Fi covers, too many access points may go into the design, and vice versa. A poor signal strength reading results in not just an inefficient design, but the losses of cost, time, productivity, and the true merit of the original Wi-Fi designer.
