Floor Plan Site Survey Data Sheet
The following tables will help you gather the data necessary for analyzing each of the five floor plans in the Floor Plan Site Survey exercise. As you go through the exercise, complete the information in each table. The information gathered in this assignment will assist you in your final project.
Explain the major features of this floor plan. For example, are there large open spaces, large walls, cubes, or offices?
| The conference center has concrete walls that interfere with the RF signals in the large conference room. Bathroom 1 bathroom receives a strong signal but bathroom 2 receives a weak signal due to the concrete wall between the two. Storage and phone switching receives no signal due to the distance between the AP and offices to the right.
| Identify areas of this floor plan that may present issues when designing your network. Why will these areas present issues? For each area identified, what can you do to overcome the issue?
| This floor plan present issues that are mainly due to location of data center, concrete walls and space. The large conference room RF signals are affected by an elevator and concrete walls which known for creating absorption. I suggest that we relocate the data center from the left side of the building to the center or add an additional AP in the large conference room to eliminate the possibility of expensive construction. By adding an additional AP, the storage and phone switching room can receive a stronger signal. The further right of the AP I tested, the weaker the signal would get so relocation or adding an additional AP closer to the center of the floor at its highest point ( Omni-Directional) would definitely help resolve these issues.
| Based on your site survey, do you think that placing the wireless access point in the data center is an ideal location? Would you place it somewhere else in the building? Do you...
