Our students in CE-158 are doing Wi-Fi surveys of three campus buildings as their class projects. The process uses a program that sniffs wi-fi performance out of the air and records it on a building floor plan. While the program is willing to extrapolate beyond reason, we will get the best data with broad access to your facilities. This means that e.g. to survey in unoccupied offices they will need an escort with keys. Our students will make arrangements directly with the building contacts and this note serves as the introduction.
For ITS, we are evaluating the measurement tool as a candidate for adoption for indoor surveys. What building owners will get is a quantitative survey of Wi-Fi coverage along with the student report.
The survey program only listens to beacon packets from the cruznet access points. No user data is monitored.
