WiFi Survey Reporting

Planner Signal Coverage Report

The image on the right shows signal coverage (in dBm) at each point in the map layout. Refer to the legend below the map for the dBm values corresponding to each colour region. As a general rule, regions with signal strengths below -67 dBm provide insufficient coverage for standard use (this value may vary depending on user requirements, service level agreements, applications used, number of users serviced, etc.).
APs are displayed in their planned locations and reflect the specified power and antenna properties. Note that an active WiFi area can incorporate a variety of environmental factors that can vary throughout the day and may adversely affect projected RF coverage.

Channel Interference

The interference level (in percentage) at each point in the map layout. Refer to the legend below the map for the percent values corresponding to each colour region.  APs are displayed in their planned locations and reflect the specified power and antenna properties. Note that the interference levels present in the environment can vary depending on several factors, such as the number of APs on a single channel, number of devices present, non-802.11 interferers, etc.

PHY Data Rate Coverage

The image on the right 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 colour region. Although a higher speed is invariably better for any deployment, implementations designed for VoFi operations should pay particular attention to ensuring a favourable 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.


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 colour region. Although a higher throughput level is invariably better for any deployment, implementations designed for VoFi operations should pay particular attention to ensuring a favourable 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.

IP Telephony

Maximiser is probably the most innovative telephony solution for business in the market today.

The Maximiser telephony system which is then coupled with Albion's skills (as an ISP and systems integrator) in voice, data and customer support, businesses both small and large are taking advantage of the huge cost savings and increased productivity that only a truly up to date and properly configured IP telephony system can offer. In most cases these savings alone mean the system justifies it's initial cost and with the added flexibility companies can work and respond to change in ways that would not have been possible in the past.

Reduced call costs

Using the internet to route outbound calls means dramatically reduced call charges especially when calling long distance or overseas. AND calls to remote workers or different branches are absolutely free.

Improved Efficiency

Integrating all you voice and data into one network can improve efficiency from 10 to 40% according to research complied by leading communication companies like Cisco.

Reduced Administration Costs

Easy of use and set up means for example people moving between desks, branches or to other locations on your network doesn't involve costly reconfiguration.

Increased personal & Workgroup productivity

The incredible list of features available to the users from number stores to conferencing and the availability status of everyone on the network means people can work together in ways no traditional business telephone user could invisage.

Improved Reliability

By routing calls over both internet and the traditional telephone network there's resilience built in and when added to the reduction in complexity of your network and industry standard protocols it's easy to see why modern IP phone systems are taking off.

Improved Customer Care

Ever been asked to phone another number when speaking to a business. With the ability to route calls to anywhere on your network whether local or remote you can deal with incoming enquiries in the most efficient manner possible.


By using the latest SIP technology network overheads are kept to a minimum which means the cost is kept low when upgrading the system when your business expands.

Rapid Return on investment

With the reduction in call costs, low installation costs, improved efficiency and ease of use it's easy to see why IP telephony is being adopted across the world at such a high pace.
