Poor wireless connectivity can have a negative impact on user experience, productivity and even staff morale. In larger premises, “dead spots” in the coverage can result in areas of the building being under-utilised. For offices that have embraced hotdesking, this could result in over-crowding in areas of good coverage and unused space where coverage is poor.
For organisations looking to install a new wireless network, a predictive survey is commonly considered the first step on the ‘wireless journey’. For those seeking to optimise an existing wireless network, a predictive survey from Datrix provides a cost-effective and non-disruptive way of getting started.
A predictive survey takes place virtually and doesn't require a site visit, so it can be carried out quickly and cost-effectively. Working from detailed CAD files or site plans we will design a wireless network that guarantees coverage throughout your premises and is tailored to the unique requirements of your business.
An on-site wireless survey from Datrix is the second key step to a successful wireless deployment and is typically used to determine the number and location of access points (APs) for new installations and/or to validate the same for a pre-existing wireless installation.
Whether you are looking to supplement an existing network with additional wireless connectivity, provide guest wi-fi access or adopt an all-wireless strategy, a detailed site survey is essential.
"Datrix delivered a successful wireless project for us and we therefore contracted them to deliver a similar migration project on the wired network. We benefited from their skills and experience throughout the project"

When designing a wireless network, there are multiple variables to take into consideration, including:
