Wireless Site Survey
Posted on 2014-01-09
Hi, I need to do a wireless site survey for a warehouse.
the deployment was already made by previous technician who is no longer with our company. The warehouse has approx 125bAruba APs model AP-125s with controller PowerConnect W-6000 M3
there are staff in the warehouse who use PSION Teklogix Workabout Pro hand held scanners and complain it drops off randomly..its very intermittent.
All the APs are only operating on 2.4 GHZ mode - using channels 1,6,11.
IPs of the APs are in the ranges/subnets of:
The warehouses are long and open with ceilings up to approx 50 feet and are in rows.with shelving up to 3/4 of height, open shelving, some wood shelving, some metal. the current AP deployment is that each row has 1 AP staggered for each row. IE. row 1 has AP near front of the row, row 2 has the AP towards the back of the row...
I have not yet run the airmagnet survey pro yet, but was wondering whats the best course of action to take.
The issue has been ongoing for over 1 year and since I came on board they asked me to look at this...
