Wi-Fi Servicing Wi-Fi Planning and design expectation document WFPD- Wi-Fi Plan/ design Mboneni Wi-Fi Planner simulates Access Points as well as antenna and building characteristics to predict the number of Access Points needed, and their respective locations before an actual Wi-Fi deployment. This report provides real time Access Point signal coverage for the floor plan and recommends the number of Access Points needed and their locations on a floor plan (marked by numbers in red). Before we can conduct a design for your building please provide us with the following A map of the building you want us to plan or design Wi-Fi A contact person in your company who has access  to the areas we plan to map The following will be included in this planner report. Planner Report Planner AP List Planner AP Location Map Planner Signal Coverage (Heat Map) PHY Data Rate Coverage Throughput 802.11n Highest MCS Index This report also provides detailed information for the Access Points being deployed: Name/ MAC address of the Access Point. Channel/SSID allocated. Planned location co ordinates for the Access Point. Height of the Access Point/antenna above floor level. Type of the antenna and its specifications. Below is a sample report.

Height of the Access Point/antenna above floor level. Type of the antenna and its specifications. Planner AP List The table below lists the properties for each AP placed on the plan, including its name, location (as obtained from the grid on the floor plan/map fed to the planner), MAC address, SSID, height, antenna type and angle of orientation, channel, and power. Note that some APs may have two listings: the first represents the AP's 802.11a antenna, and the second 802.11b/g. Since these two mediums may have different antenna types and properties, they are separated in the table.  This list can be used as a 'shopping list' or 'bill of materials list' for the wireless equipment to be purchased.

Note that an active Wi-Fi area can incorporate a variety of environmental factors that can vary throughout the day and may adversely affect projected RF coverage.   PHY Data Rate Coverage The image below displays the Predictive PHY Data Rate (in dBm) at each point in the map layout. Refer to the legend below the map for the dBm value of the signal corresponding to each color region. Although a higher speed is invariably better for any deployment, implementations designed for VoFi operations should pay particular attention to ensuring a favorable data rate, as low rates can have a far greater affect in terms of jitter, voice delay, and call quality than they would for a standard data deployment.   Throughput The image below displays the expected Throughput (in Mbps) calculated based on the site's layout. Refer to the legend below the map for the value in Mbps that corresponds to each color region. Although a higher throughput level is invariably better for any deployment, implementations designed for VoFi operations should pay particular attention to ensuring a favorable throughput level, as lower levels can have a far greater affect in terms of jitter, voice delay, and call quality than they would for a standard data deployment.   802.11n Highest MCS Index The image below displays the Highest MCS Index values used by the APs in the site plan. Refer to the legend below the map for the color that corresponds to each value (ranging from 0 to 32). Higher values of MCS generally correspond to higher data transmit speeds.
