Here we’ll go over everything you need to know about site survey and readiness - including a site survey checklist to think about pre-deployment.
A site survey is carried out before the deployment of any hardware. The aim is to collect all data related to customer’s sites as a way of planning for minimal disruption during and after deployment.
The site survey process consists of engineers who will complete questionnaires that help gather all the data required. This typically relates to the network closet, existing cabling, existing power, HVAC conditions and any space that’s available in the network racks for new hardware.
After carrying out this comprehensive onsite survey, customers get first-hand information about all the pre-deployment work that needs to happen before new hardware is deployed. This is all based on the data gathered by engineers.

Site readiness is performed to ensure that the area is ready for you to carry out your telecom site survey. Here’s the typical work that goes into doing this:
Installation of racks: it’s a good idea to use professional installers as they know how to position and install the racks without causing any damages.
Dmarc Extensions: this is essentially a transmission path that starts at the interface of the access providers side of a telecoms circuit and ends at the termination point before the interface of the customer's premises equipment.
Low Voltage Cabling: this is structured wiring that helps support different digital technologies and must be installed on site.
Backboard installation: these are the backbone of telecom rooms and are fire resistant. They’re used as a protective barrier between the wall and any installed equipment.
