With our network engineering services, you can ensure your network architecture design is optimised for performance and security, while also taking advantage of cloud network management.

Wireless Surveys

We have access to some of the best wireless survey and design engineers in the UK.  We use the latest tools and technology and combined with over 30 years of experience, we ensure that you get the best possible wireless solution. 

Good wireless solutions start with a wireless survey.  We provide the following wireless survey options:

Pre-Deployment Site Survey

These are often called AP on a stick surveys and are conducted before deploying a wireless network in a new location. It involves assessing the physical environment, identifying potential obstacles or sources of interference, and determining the optimal placement of access points (APs). Pre-deployment surveys ensure proper coverage, signal strength, and capacity planning.

Coverage and Signal Strength Survey

This survey focuses on assessing the coverage area and signal strength of an existing wireless network. It helps identify dead zones, areas with weak signal strength, or locations experiencing interference. A coverage survey is helpful when experiencing connectivity issues or planning to expand the network.

Spectrum Analysis Survey

Spectrum analysis surveys are conducted to identify and mitigate sources of wireless interference. This survey involves analysing the radio frequency spectrum for any unauthorised or interfering devices that may impact network performance. It helps in selecting optimal channels and configuring APs to avoid interference.

Post-Deployment Survey

After deploying a wireless network, a post-deployment survey is conducted to validate the network’s performance, coverage, and signal strength. It ensures that the network meets the intended objectives and helps identify any potential issues that require troubleshooting or adjustments.

Predictive Survey

A predictive survey is performed using specialised software to simulate the wireless network coverage and performance without physically visiting the location. It utilises building floor plans, antenna specifications, and other relevant data to estimate coverage, AP placement, and signal propagation. Predictive surveys are useful for initial planning or assessing potential network expansions.

Active and Passive Surveys

Active surveys involve actively measuring the network’s performance by generating traffic and collecting data on signal strength, throughput, latency, and packet loss.

Passive surveys, on the other hand, capture and analyse existing wireless traffic to assess network performance and detect potential issues.

Mobility Survey

Mobility surveys are conducted in environments where seamless roaming between access points is crucial, such as hospitals, warehouses, or large office spaces. These surveys analyse handoff and roaming capabilities, ensuring uninterrupted connectivity during user mobility.

Troubleshooting and Diagnostics

Having trouble with your current WiFi or Network setup? Or maybe you need help adjusting to recent changes and maximising your current solution?
At Castra Solutions, we’re here to not only fix any issues with your existing setup, but we can also manage the support for your current system so it remains operational for as long as possible.

The type of survey required depends on the goals and circumstances of the wireless network deployment. Conducting the appropriate survey helps optimise network performance, ensure coverage and signal quality, identify and mitigate interference, and meet the specific requirements of the wireless network environment.

For wireless surveys we use a mixture of Hamina, Ekahau and Tamograph depending on the type of survey and environment that is being surveyed.
