While there are many things that can affect wireless local area network (WLAN) operation, the placement of wireless access points (AP) can be one of the most significant factors in performance. Good AP placement must provide not only adequate coverage for all clients on a network, but must also provide adequate throughput, good connectivity, and minimal interference.

With the increase in low power devices, such as tablets and cell phones, and the increasing need for roaming service over nomadic use, efficient placement is critical to an operating wireless network. Poor placement of access points can result in numerous issues including low data rates, signal bleeding, bad roaming coverage, and even overspending on additional APs.
