If you were to step foot on any college campus today, there would be some very noticeable differences compared to just 10 years ago.
It’s not a mystery that mobile technology is here to stay.
It has opened up a world of possibility for communication, learning and assisting users in many creative ways. As technology continues to find a home in several different industries, arguably none have benefited more than K-12 school wireless networks.
Do you remember that scene in the movie Forest Gump when “Bubba” goes on and on about the many different ways you can cook shrimp? Site-Surveys are kind of like that.
No, there aren’t nearly as many as Bubba rattled off but there are quite a few and they all have their specific place in the wireless network design process.
One of the most frustrating terms in the wireless industry is the term “site-survey”; it means one thing to some and a completely different thing to others. The reality is that having such a mixed consensus on what the term really means is confusing and in a lot of cases causes the wrong expectations and ultimately a poorly designed, poor performing WLAN.
It’s time we try and settle the confusion.
