Warehouse WLAN Health Check

Wireless Inteference

Is the wireless network in your warehouse not performing the way your business needs it to? Do you have interference, dropouts, poor throughput and connection issues? Or are you just after peace of mind and reassurance that your wireless network is operating to its highest levels? Our WiFi site surveys are an invaluable tool in diagnosing problematic wireless networks. From wireless network dropouts, discovering hidden nodes, frequency interference, WiFi rogue access points and many more hazards to wireless networks, we can ensure that your warehouse wireless network starts to perform. Performing a wireless survey on an existing wireless network is a great way to baseline your wireless performance. The environment in which WiFi networks exists is forever changing and this is especially the case with warehouse environments! Allowing DigitalAir Wireless to perform a wireless health check can highlight RF issues before they become a problem. Some of these problems are:

  • Poor Performance / Throughput
  • RF Interference
  • The presence of WiFi Rouge Access Points
  • Wireless Dead Spots
  • WiFi Security Weaknesses
  • WiFi Client Connection Problems

Poor Performance and Throughput

Are your handheld scanners or forklift truck clients experiencing poor wireless connectivity in your warehouse? There may be serious problems with your network deployment that are causing problems such as poor connectivity and low throughput which is starting to have an impact on your business.

Spectrum Analysis / RF Interference

A full spectrum analysis will include detection, measurement and recording of the presence of RF Interference that could degrade the performance of your wireless network. Interference such as microwaves, PIR sensors, Bluetooth and legacy wireless devices can have a serious impact on your WiFi network.

Find Rogue Access Points

WiFi Rogue access points are a serious threat to the security of your wireless network and corporate data. If you don't have full wireless coverage throughout your warehouse a WiFi rogue access point is usually installed by someone who is simply looking for the same convenience and flexibility at work that they've grown accustomed to using on their own home wireless network.

Locate Wireless Dead Spots

Dead spots in your wireless network can sometimes be hard to find and can be the result of a poorly designed WiFi network or a change in the RF environment. Our wireless health check will map out all of the coverage holes in your WiFi network allowing us to help you design more redundancy into your network design. Due to the ever changing nature of warehouses it is feasible for shelving to be totally empty one day and then full the next suddenly causing dead spots. We will locate the problem and come up with a resilient solution that will perform even in the worst case scenarios. 

Security Weaknesses

WiFi security is at the top of everyone's agenda at present and that should be no different for your wireless network. WEP and WPA are no longer acceptable in a warehouse environment and our wireless survey will highlight your security weaknesses so that we can give you the right recommendations to secure your data!

The Health Check Survey documentation will include:

  • Maps of the WiFi RF coverage.
  • Detection, measurement and recording of the presence of RF Interference that could degrade the performance of a wireless network.
  • Diagnostics of common WiFi problems - Hidden Node, Near Far, Sticky Client etc.
  • Recommendations for fault resolution.

No wireless survey is complete without spectrum analysis!

Wipsy Channels

Having the ability to perform a spectrum analysis and work out what is going on in your RF environment is paramount to locating invisible interference in your WiFi network.All of your wireless surveys include a scan for interference which enables us to baseline your RF environment. You will be surprised how many devices can be found operating within the WLAN frequency range that will be having an effect on your wireless network.Each wireless health check is customized to your specific needs. Depending on the size and complexity of your network, the WLAN Health Check requires between 1 and 3 days of services. Before beginning the health check, DigitalAir Wireless will enter into a consultancy phase with you to enable you to gain the most out of your wireless health check.
