What we don’t do

This is dependent on the RF environment we are contracted to assess

Changes in usable frequencies by the FCC
Other entities within a structure or outside a structure that may implement new wireless systems after our initial scans
New structures or design changes within the space the wireless is operating in
Any design flaws that are not considered “best practices” during the initial installation
We do not respond to the end user, only to the contracted entity that has employed us to perform the services requested. This is why we require you to provide at least one service technician to accompany us whenever we are required to be onsite

A description or SOW that explains the desired outcome of the project
PESS requires a technician from the contracted company who will accompany PESS on site

All scheduling for offsite and onsite visits will be agreed upon by PESS and the contracted company
