To identify the factors causing performance issues of the wireless mesh network, Acubis conducted a radio frequency (RF) propagation survey. Analysis from the site survey revealed multiple causes contributing to dead spots and shadowing which resulted in loss of data and voice connectivity in specific site locations.
As part of their investigation, Acubis conducted a detailed Radio Frequency RF propagation survey. This revealed several contributing factors causing dead spots, shadowing, and subsequent loss of connectivity.
RF survey analysis included:
- location and placement of antennas
- interference on channels
- missing static routes
- displacement and effectiveness of existing communication tower infrastructure
