Identify the equipment, applications, and system features involved in performing predictive site surveys

  • RF coverage analysis uses applications that provide RF simulations and modeling design capabilities.
  • Predictive coverage analysis is accomplished using an application that creates visual models of RF coverage cells, bypassing the need for actually capturing RF measurements.
  • The software creates forecast models using the predictive algorithms and the attenuation information.
  • The modeling forecast can include the following:
    • Channel reuse patterns
    • Coverage cell boundaries
    • Access point placement
    • Access point power settings
    • Number of access points
    • Data rates
  • Predictive applications are an excellent tool to use with blueprints of buildings that have yet to be built.
