Wireless Site Survey Checklist

Use this Wireless Site Survey Checklist before implementing or optimizing a WLAN to understand possible interference, equipment needed, and power, wiring, and aesthetic considerations. Conducting a wireless site survey questionnaire will enable you to determine the best place for access points to avoid overlap or interference and optimize your wireless network. This mobile form was designed for surveying existing commercial facilities but can be adapted for predictive surveys, or to conduct residential wireless site surveys. All Fulcrum mobile forms work offline and can be synced to your dashboard as soon as you reach connectivity.
