Determining the requirements and constraints of a Wi-Fi network is a critical first step because it steers the rest of the project. We speak to all stakeholders, including both end-users and leaders. The end-users often provide the most valuable information.
Often we will need to complete a pre-deployment site survey, this will help us agree on the number of physical access points and their optimal locations. We will also look out for other RF signals that could interfere with the completed Wi-Fi network.
