The Key Benefits of WiFi Site Surveys for Businesses

The Key Benefits of WiFi Site Surveys for Businesses

In an increasingly digital world, where meetings are virtual and staff are remote, a high-performing wireless network in the workplace is paramount. Now more than ever,WiFi site surveys are the key to a smooth-running working day.

Our wireless surveys use Ekahau technology to determine any potential on-site issues that could impact your connection and fix them before installation, ensuring you the best possible connection.

What are the Benefits Of WiFi Surveys?

Our market-leading Ekahau site surveys allow you to plan your wireless network thoroughly to meet the needs of your business.Our qualified engineers will identify the best and worst access points (APs), resolve prospective issues and optimise WiFi coverage. But how does your business benefit from this on a day-to-day basis?

  1. Increases Efficiency & Productivity

We all want things to run efficiently in the workplace. The better the connection, the better the productivity – so don’t leave it down to guesswork. Conducting a survey means that your APs are carefully planned out, giving everyone a speedy connection.
And when it comes to virtually connecting with co-workers, it’s more important than ever. How many times has your audio or video failed during a virtual meeting? Well, wi-fi surveys are a great way to avoid this.

  1. Identifies Problem Areas

Problems with signal strength or speed? There are several things that could be impacting this. A site survey will identify these issues and help you avoid these issues in the future. Here are some of the things that could be affecting your network:

  • Usage – the more devices using the network, the higher the bandwidth you’ll need to avoid slow wi-fi speed.
  • Router Location – the location of your router can impact your network more than you’d think. The less physical obstructions and the more the central the router, the better the connection.
  • Capacity – if you’re in a large premises with lots of employees, it may be that your office is simply too large for everyone to get a fast connection.

These are just a few examples of some of the things that can impact your network connection. Regular site surveys are a great way to identify and avoid these.

  1. Improves Network Security

A WiFi survey can also optimise your network’s security. Cyber-attacks can be the result of disruptions to your wireless connectivity, and that’s not a chance worth taking for any business.
Having your AP locations planned more carefully can help with this.
After your site survey, our Wireless Networking services are on hand to align your network with your security policy.

  1. Minimises costs

Another reason not to leave your wireless network down to guesswork? Cost.
If your network is performing poorly, it may end up costing you more in the long run. That’s why thorough planning with a site survey can save you both time and money. It allows you to make a more informed decision and only invest in what you already know will work, saving you hassle in the future.

  1. Improves your customer & visitor experience

Depending on the type of business, a poor wireless connection could impact your customer’s experience if they frequent the premises. Access to WiFi for your visitors may just be the reason they return. Or, if you regularly host meetings at your office, you’ll need a strong network in order for your meeting to run smoothly and to keep your visitors happy and impressed.
