Wireless Site Survey Services

Ensuring Speed and Accuracy with a Professional RF Site Survey

When set up correctly, wireless network systems allow fast access to essential business information. However, if a system is not implemented correctly, it can result in lost money and productivity. That’s why it’s essential to have an experienced team conduct a WiFi site survey. A site survey will address the environmental factors – from walls and poles to metal and temperature – that can impact your wireless coverage.

With travel and onsite visits being impacted by COVID-19, our team also provides Express Site Surveys that instead use telephone based consultations.

Wi-Fi / RF Site Surveys – Our Process

Peak Technologies surveys include the following elements:


Peak Technologies reviews the floor plan and identifies the best access point locations for optimal WiFi coverage and maximum RF signal strength.

Environmental Factors

A Peak Technologies wireless engineer determines the signal-to-noise ratio and considers the factors that can disrupt coverage and interfere with radio frequency signals. This includes building construction materials, types of products in the building, racking systems, and freezers. They also evaluate any other RF or wireless devices already installed to ensure no co-channel interference.

Propagation Frequencies Testing

The spectrum analysis engineer physically tests the propagation frequencies and determines where to place the access points. They will also decide what direction to point the antenna to maximize wireless signal coverage and data rate throughput.


If needed, Peak Technologies will carefully develop specifications for the required network layout and cabling.

Final Report

At the completion of the wireless LAN survey, a written report includes:

- Administrative details
- Survey equipment data
- Site survey results
- Surveyor's notes
- Suggested wireless site survey equipment with specifications
- Customer supplied system components
- WiFi locations
- Network cabling information
- Technical support information
- Hardware support information
- Scheduling terms and conditions
- A series of CAD drawings showing the coverage pattern for each radio transceiver on the day of the survey

Express Site Surveys

Onsite visits aren't possible? Peak Technologies' Express Site Survey uses a series of telephone based consultations and customer-supplied site drawings to make recommendations. Based on this information, our engineers determine the transceivers' optimal positioning for adequate RF propagation.
