Project Description

WiFi coverage analysis within a well-known and established restaurant chain

C-Tech Solutions were tasked with providing an analysis of existing Wi-Fi coverage within a well known and established restaurant chain.  The task appointed to C-Tech Solutions was to survey existing Wi-Fi coverage, analyse primary and secondary coverage, analyse incoming speeds to the restaurant and make recommendations to improve primary and secondary coverage within the restaurant.

This process involved working closely with the main contractor and customer to ensure the survey and recommendations were accurate and achievable, the results were produced in a report written by C-Tech engineers and a timely turnaround was required.

The survey was conducted with Ekahau Wireless Software and Sidekick to measure the air and to produce heat maps to write the reports required by the customer and main contractor. The C-Tech Engineer was also required to identify AP locations, channels used by existing APs, any issues with existing APs such as channel, power, cabling issues.

The survey report analysed areas such as primary coverage, secondary coverage, SNR, packet loss, notes & observations and any recommendations.

This was nationwide covering a total of 88 restaurants.
