PRE-DEPLOYMENT

Planning - Design - Simulation

Every business has a different set of requirements when it comes to WiFi.

We start by understanding your requirements to accurately design a high performing WiFi network.

We create your design by taking into account the areas in scope, number and type of client devices, wall materials, floor materials, antenna direction, mounting and cable considerations, designing for coverage as well as capacity.

We also ensure the chosen WLAN technology will adequately support application and user requirements.

POST-DEPLOYMENT

Validation - Audits - Troubleshooting - Analysis 

Whether it's a validation of a newly deployed WiFi network, an audit to analyse an existing WiFi network or end users complaining of poor performance, our experienced engineers can perform a number of onsite surveys and/or packet analysis to gain visibility into the RF environment to understand how your WLAN is performing.
