Which Survey do I need?


Network speed is now an essential toolkit needed for IT personnel. One of the problems is that cabling infrastructure gets forgotten about! With the introduction of 40Gb backbone architecture, needing a high spec fibre cable between hardware couldnt be more important


This provides more insight on the network connectivity and/or performance. Things like packet loss, packet delay, and access points you’ve associated with, can be measured during active site surveys. As the name suggests, with active surveys the Wi-Fi adapter is receiving AND sending packets to figure out what’s truly going on with the network.


Are performed to get an understanding of the RF characteristics on-site. By RF characteristics I mean Wi-Fi signal strengths, noise levels, SNR (signal-to-noise ratio), and the like. The reason the site surveys are called “passive” is that your Wi-Fi network adapter is pretty much just listening to packets when performing passive site surveys. OK, the NIC might send some probes out, but that’s about it.


  • Tidey Electrical Ltd has provided power and data cable infrastructure installations for a number of Government IT systems, across several Governmental departments and often in sensitive areas. There work must therefore comply with our strict security standards and finally pass stringent accreditation. I have been extremely impressed with the quality of their work and high professionalism of the ‘Tidey Electrical Ltd’ installation engineers. The feedback I have receive from our Partner sites has always been positive. For this particular project and where possible Tidey’s have been our choice of company for installation work. I would strongly recommend Tidey’s to any of our Governmental departments or commercial companies for power, copper and fibre optic data cable installations.

Tom’s standard of work was always of the highest quality and he was rightly recognised for his attention to detail and the professional manner in which he undertook all projects. I would recommend him very highly to carry out projects as he is efficient, hard working, reliable and trustworthy and I would not hesitate to use him to carry out any structured cabling or electrical installation projects
