Site Survey

Vocera Collaboration Suite includes a voice application which connects over Wi-Fi. For best results, a Voice grade wireless network must be designed, and a site survey must be completed to verify proper coverage for the frequency band it will be deployed on.

If you have badges running on 2.4 GHz and plan to run VCS on 5 GHz, the 5GHz must be validated. The radio characteristics and planning of 2.4 and 5GHz are very different. Sufficient coverage on the 2.4 GHz network does not mean adequate coverage for 5 GHz. In both cases, the requirements are to have -65dBm power coverage with an SNR of 25 at 50mW or lower AP power output wherever the devices will be utilized.
