After discussing the concept, approving the project and conducting a radio survey, you can begin an important part of implementing a wireless solution – radio planning . At this stage, a model of the future radio coverage is constructed, equipment with optimal characteristics for the task is chosen, parameters such as antenna orientation, position and height of the suspension, the angles of the signal orientation, the required power and frequencies are taken into account, taking into account the interference map.
In the case of building networks of the ” point-to-multipoint ” type, cartographic information – relief and hydrography of the terrain, weather characteristics of the region and temperature range is taken into account. In addition, an important point is the actual scheme of building the area, and, if available, a plan for further development, since unrecorded obstacles can have a disastrous effect on the quality of the signal.
The composition of the radio planning activities also includes preliminary testing of the wireless network directly at the customer’s premises.
A thorough, well-considered approach, respecting all aspects of building wireless solutions, guarantees a high level of security, minimizes the risks of service failure, and in addition significantly reduces the costs of restructuring and expanding your network.
