Perhaps the most important implementation step is the radio frequency site survey. This process ensures that the deployed wireless network will meet or exceed the performance and reliability requirements identified in the design phase.
While many consider the RF Site Survey the design phase of a wireless network deployment, our belief is that this step can only be successful if it is performed with a predefined set of requirements and expectations in place. These requirements, which are defined in the design phase, become the parameters for the site survey, thus making the site survey the first step of implementation.
More and more, we are seeing health care businesses large and small look to their wireless networks for voice, video and location-based services. If the network is ready for these applications, no problem. But what if it isn’t?
A poorly designed wireless infrastructure can negatively impact the deployment of your wireless dependant application, even in the pilot phase.Learn More
Wireless networks are continuing to shift away from a single application system toward a more comprehensive, robust multimedia network platform. Modern WLAN dependant applications such as wireless VoIP, live video and location- based services require a site survey that considers the requirements of each technology. A poorly designed wireless infrastructure can negatively impact the deployment of your wireless dependant application, even in the pilot phase.
The information collected in a WLAN Site Survey comprises the physical aspects of the network. This includes access point mounting locations, antenna selection, and radio specific details such as operating frequency and transmission power.Learn More
The information collected in a WLAN Site Survey comprises the physical aspects of the network. This includes access point mounting locations, antenna selection, and radio specific details such as operating frequency and transmission power. The RF signal propagation of each access point is meticulously documented and spectrum analysis is performed to identify potential sources of interference which may need to be avoided or eliminated.
Our site survey findings are documented and delivered in a complete RF Site Survey Report which provides the information necessary to install network cabling, procure hardware, and ultimately deploy the network. This report is accompanied by an Interactive RF Site Survey Report. This unique deliverable, provided with each site survey we perform, allows for a much deeper understanding of the wireless propagation than a static report.
Whether designing a wireless network from the ground up to support VoIP, or adding VoIP capabilities to an existing network, our consultants draw on their vast experience to provide a solid foundation for wireless VoIP.Learn More
Few network applications dictate WLAN design the way VoIP does. Common networked applications such as email and web browsing have mechanisms to deal with problems like network latency, and often these problems go largely unnoticed by users. However, when network problems are present with a VoIP application they are audibly detectible as poor voice quality or result in dropped and missed calls. Problems which are simple nuisances for wireless laptop and PDA users become critical barriers to VoIP usage.
Whether designing a wireless network from the ground up to support VoIP, or adding VoIP capabilities to an existing network, our consultants draw on their vast experience to provide a solid foundation for wireless VoIP.

When users at a health system in Maryland started reporting issues with wireless VoIP phones in the NICU and PICU areas of the hospital, the network administrators contacted Velaspan with a request for a wireless site survey. After discussing their current wireless challenges and long-term goals, Velaspan proposed a two phased approach to not only perform a new survey to replace their legacy access points, but also review the overall WLAN configuration and current state. Once complete, immediate and long term WLAN remediation actions were presented along with the wireless site survey report. The results were so successful that the remainder of the hospital will be surveyed to deploy based on new architecture options and deployment models.
More than a decade ago, we identified a void in the networking world – precision, innovative custom wireless solutions and service! We knew that the wireless industry was not static – and never would be. New and better technology will constantly be emerging. Needs and goals of companies and institutions will be continually evolving. Security threats will always exist and only become more threatening. But were there any experienced consulting firms out there truly focused on the individual customer’s needs…from the big picture to the seemingly minute details?
