Wireless Health Check

A customer, who we maintain their hardware through a value added re-seller, requested an engineer onsite to health check their new wireless that they had installed.  The value added re-seller did not have the expertise to perform this function so requested they we go in on their behalf; we were happy to do this as the re-sellers engineers for the day.

They originally had Psion/Teklogix narrow band radios, but had upgraded to 802.11 and had placed the AP’s at regular intervals testing the range of each PA as required. The site was segregated into areas so made it easy to test.

The tests performed consisted of:

  • Range.
  • Channels.
  • Ping.
  • Throughput.
  • Noise.

The only issue we could find was a few overlapping channels. these were edited so better roaming capabilities.
