Kbaier Ben Ismail, Dhouha and Singh, Deep (2021). Methodology to Build Radio Cartography of Wi-Fi Coverage. In: Proceedings of Fifth International Congress on Information and Communication Technology (Yang, Xin-She; Sherratt, R Simon; Dey, Nilanjan and Joshi, Amit eds.), 1183 pp. 278–289.



In the modern world, wireless local area networks (WLANs) have seen major growth and almost become a necessity for organisations regardless of its size due to its flexibility, easy installation and cost-efficiency compared to traditional wired LANs. On the other hand, Wi-Fi cartography is being utilised to enhance wireless network deployment, optimise Wi-Fi infrastructure through performing a radio frequency (RF) spectrum analysis (2.4 and 5 GHz) and identifying crucial points to improve the performance of voice and data communications. This paper presents a methodology to build radio cartography of Wi-Fi coverage. Furthermore, simulations are run and Wi-Fi cartography results performed in several areas at the University are presented. A thorough examination and critical analysis of the simulated areas are discussed. The authors reflect upon propagation environments, access points (APs) detected with respective standards, techniques and speeds supported, latency, packet loss and quality of service parameters.
