Wi-Fi access points and networks are installed in almost every
building these days. Some cities have area-wide free networks while
some venues like airports have free and paid access. Whatever the
case, Wi-Fi networks can be as simple as a single access point or
as complicated as a multi-zone, multi-frequency network delivering
high capacity data and voice services.
In venues that provide Wi-Fi to demanding users in sports stadiums,
schools, airports, hotels and others it is critical to test the
performance as seen by the Wi-Fi user. Most Wi-Fi testing measures
signal strength coverage but this does not provide the complete
picture. Signal level can be excellent yet data throughput can be
poor. It is vital to test the Wi-Fi network as seen by the actual user
which means testing the actual data rates while the user is staionary
as well as when the user moves around the venue from AP to AP.
Many things not related to signal strength can affect the user
perception of quality and data speeds. ZK Services has specific Wi-Fi
collection measurement and analysis software from leading vendors
that provide the complete pucture of service quality and root cause
analysis to our clients.
