Your survey will be in-depth and in person.
3D-P’s experienced solution architect begins the discovery process to understand what current and future applications are networked wirelessly, how many mobile clients are accessing the network and in what operational areas, as well as additional required coverage areas and access requirements.
Next, we review the mine’s topography. This helps identify existing networking equipment and upgrade requirements, potential obstacles to RF transmission, available power and fiber drops, as well as appropriate locations for new infrastructure and client access points.
An inspection of the mobile fleet is conducted to determine installation requirements and to identify any unknown challenges.
Lastly, a radio frequency survey is performed to identify any potential sources of interference and to assist in the development of an appropriate channelization scheme for your specific site.
