To perform the procedures for locating the components of your wireless devices, you need the following:

  • A detailed copy of the job site floor plans for the proposed application site. The floor plan contain the wall locations, column locations, mechanical rooms, elevator shafts, stairwells, metal duct work, chases and risers, and other large metal obstructions shown. Include the proposed mechanical/HVAC zone layout and wireless device locations in the plans.
  • A copy of the job site architectural and mechanical specifications with the construction materials defined.
  • Information on the dimensions, materials, and the general location of the furnishings and other mobile content that is or may be installed later in the occupied application space. For example, file cabinets, shelving units, partitions, displays, and other large metal items that can obstruct wireless signals.
  • Several different colored pens or markers for identifying zone and area boundaries, wireless product locations, and signal obstructions. Examples of major obstructions (MOs) include:
    • Interior building features such as elevator shafts, stairwells, mechanical or electrical equipment rooms, equipment chases for HVAC, plumbing and electrical risers, metal reinforced walls, concrete walls, cinder blocks, glass walls with metal coating, and large metal-reinforced columns and pillars.
    • Office equipment and furnishings such as computer racks, many rows of tall file cabinets and bookshelves, metal partitions, and displays.
  • Examples of minor obstructions include several rows of cabinets or shelves, metal light fixtures, multiple small pillars, sheetrock walls with metal or wood studs, and glass walls without metal coating. For estimating purposes, group several small or minor obstructions into a single MO.
