Contact Group have invested in high-end Ekahau Software and hardware that enables our technicians to undertake a Wi-Fi survey of a customer’s site and produce a detailed report that shows graphically the strength of the Wi-Fi signal throughout the site. Our Technicians can also take a proposed building plan and produce a predictive Wi-Fi heat map showing where the Wi-Fi access points should be placed to achieve optimal coverage. The software even takes wall and ceiling types into account when calculating the access point location.
This type of survey is essential if you are looking at running voice (phones) through your Wi-Fi network. We can even give you a report as to what extra infrastructure (access points) would be required to get your network capable of running “Real Time Location” services on the network. This technology is used to locate assets, patients and even staff for duress reasons. This is done by the use of your Wi-Fi access points to triangulate the location of a device and display its location graphically onto a map.
See below example of Wi-Fi survey software.
