Progent's wireless site survey consultants can assist you to plan, deploy, tune, and debug a Wi-Fi LAN for any environment, offering your business a wireless solution that provides the coverage, speed, capacity, QoS, data protection, and hand-off capability your organization requires. Wi-Fi site survey services offered by Progent include remote predictive modeling for planning a Wi-Fi network and in-person RF measurement for validating, optimizing, and debugging your existing Wi-Fi network.
Progent's wireless survey consultants are certified in the use of Ekahau's radio modeling software for planning your Wi-Fi environment and Ekahau's signal capture devices for recording Wi-Fi traffic at your site to determine throughput and detect problems. Progent's wireless professionals have experience integrating leading Wi-Fi access point products and wireless controller appliances including outdated products and modern Wi-Fi 6 devices.
Progent's Predictive Wireless Design Services
Progent's predictive Wi-Fi design services can be performed offsite and utilize advanced RF modeling and analysis software to plan a cost-effective Wi-Fi network. With predictive planning, you provide Progent's Wi-Fi experts your facility's floor plans and a description of your physical environment such as walls, doors, cable access, stairways, and relevant materials. You also specify your coverage, capacity, and performance requirements plus your constraints. In addition, you project the types of devices your clients will connect, the software they will run, and the peak traffic they will generate. Progent will use your input to build a digital model of your facility and develop a design that includes the most appropriate manufacturers for your APs and controllers, the recommended number of APs, their ideal location and antenna type, their proper configuration and power settings and their predicted throughput.

Progent's On-premises Wi-Fi Site Survey
Progent's onsite Wi-Fi survey uses a specialized RF signal collection instrument and related software tools to allow you to validate, optimize, and debug your current Wi-Fi deployment. This is typically performed shortly after a fresh deployment or used as a tool to scale, tune, or debug an older wireless LAN. Offered across the U.S., Progent's on-premises Wi-Fi site survey services include walkthrough measuring for RF coverage and interference, checking for access point overpopulation, RF propagation tracking, security assessment, and identification of optimum placement for customer-specified Wi-Fi APs.
Progent's consultants can deliver remote and on-premises guidance for a wide selection of wireless access points and offer support that include Aironet Wi-Fi access point integration, Cisco Meraki Wi-Fi access point cloud management, Cisco Small Business 100/300/500 Wi-Fi AP consulting, Cisco Catalyst wireless access point solution planning, Ubiquity UniFi Wi-Fi AP integration, and Apple AirPort Wi-Fi AP installation. Progent’s on-premises survey includes interviews with your IT management staff to determine performance parameters for the WLAN. Progent's BICSI RCDD and Ekahau certified Wi-Fi site survey experts can propose cost-effective Wi-Fi LAN improvements that utilize the latest Wi-Fi products and provide top business value.
Advanced wireless site survey hardware and apps help you validate, tune, and debug your wireless LAN
Progent can provide help for creating a modern Bring Your Own Device wireless environment by delivering services like iPhone and iPad integration, and Android phone and tablet consulting. Apple iPhones and iPads, Androids, Windows Phones, and other handheld endpoints can present client density issues and may also cause transmit power mismatches that require special setup for APs. Progent’s wireless site survey provides the insight you need to understand these challenges and build an affordable and productive BYOD ecosystem.
