In This Episode
The first episode for 2016 is going to be about Wi-Fi predictive modeling – how I plan my wireless networks.
But before we get into the meat of the episode, I’d like to share my new year resolutions:
- More learning
- More podcasts!
Man, I have a lot to work on. What are your resolutions?
My 2016 predications:
LTE over Wi-Fi*I meant to say LTE-U and LAA* to gain traction
- We’ll be working with more poor Wi-Fi
- Someone will be fined over blocking Wi-Fi
- Wi-Fi calling will take off
Predictive modeling is a method in which a software application is used to predict the number of access points required on a floor plan based on user inputted capacity and coverage requirements.
As the phrase says, it is a PREDICTIVE model. A wireless installation should be verified to end user requirements.
My application of choice is Ekahau Site Survey.
Some things to consider in your predictive model using Ekahau:
- Setting Capacity and Performance requirements
- Setting Coverage requirements
- Importing a floor plan
- Setting scale and alignment points
- Adding a coverage area
- Adding access points
- Optimize placement
