Wireless has become integral to everyday life. Whether it is supporting the everyday operations of a company or aiding a student sitting in a cafe finishing their homework, it has become hard to imagine life without access to the convenience of a wireless network.
Wireless networks have the advantage of being easy to set up, and recent advances in cyber security offer tough secrity protocols within your wireless network.
To offer you the best networking equipment we have partnered with Cisco, HPE Aruba and Ekahau.
|The design of the wireless network is based on the long term objectives of the customer and the type of applications they plan to use in the future. Once these goals have been established a site survey can be undertaken which would include:
|The purpose of a wireless survey is to ensure that coverage and performance are optimised to suit the individual requirements of the customer. In addition to coverage, capacity is a key metric as designing for coverage and designing for capacity can lead to very different AP layouts.
All wireless surveys will be carried out by our experienced technicians with the brief of establishing the best locations to deploy the APs for your specific use case. The most common survey types we carry out are:Predictive/Desktop Survey
We apply a program which uses information about the coverage area to perform AP placements based on RF algorithms. This will normally be carried out when the deployment environment has not yet been built.AP-on-a-Stick
This survey will be carried out before the WLAN network deployment. It will determine the RF signal propogation characteristics of the environment, and will help our engineers determine the most ideal location for APs, for maximum coverage.Post Deployment Survey
This is an important step which should not be skipped. The purpose of this survey is to ensure the verification of sufficient RF signal strength and SNR throughout the coverage area, to measure and reduce co-channel interference and to validate actual client performance.

|World-Class Wi-Fi Made Simple
Wi-Fi has become the primary access network for most organizations. With Cisco® world-class RF equipment and intelligent software, it’s a snap to make your wireless network as fast, reliable, and secure as your wired network. You get loads of extra features for improving spectrum efficiency, performance, and user experiences that you can’t find anywhere else.
Cisco wireless access points support the latest Wi-Fi standard – 802.11ac Wave 2 – and offer scalable, fast-throughput controller and switching platforms to go with them. Cisco goes beyond the Wi-Fi standard with innovations that are uniquely positioned to handle the dense volumes of wireless traffic generated by today’s mobile applications, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs, and growing numbers of wireless users, devices, and applications, plus the Internet of Things (IoT) connections
|ARUBA, A HEWLETT PACKARD ENTERPRISE COMPANY, IS REDEFINING THE INTELLIGENT EDGE WITH MOBILITY AND IOT SOLUTIONS FOR ORGANISATIONS
The company delivers IT solutions that empower organizations to serve GenMobile – mobile-savvy users who rely on cloud-based business apps for every aspect of their work and personal lives – and to harness the power of insights to transform business processes.
With infrastructure services offered as software from the public or private cloud, Aruba enables secure connectivity for mobile and IoT — under one roof. Aruba allows IT professionals to build networks that keep up with these changes by migrating away from expensive-to-operate and proprietary infrastructures, which were originally designed for fixed network connections within the physical connections of the corporate headquarters
