Wireless Practice

Cables are the traditional medium for implementing networks. Unfortunately, they are hardly efficient nor convenient in a business setup. Moreover, exposed or visible network wiring doesn't add to the aesthetic appearance of your computing environment. Cables can only carry a signal as far as the cable goes, and you have to physically move and rearrange them if you want to reorganize your network configuration.

Realising a successful wireless LAN infrastructure entails striking a balance among several factors; mobility, functionality, service quality & reliability, security and affordability.

Our wireless solution is a four stage process:

  1. Educate
  2. Plan
  3. Implement
  4. Use

With its in-depth experience building and supporting multiple wireless network solutions, our wireless team will help you visualize how wireless networking might play a role in your wider networking solution. We will also educate you on the viability of a wireless solution as well as the cost/benefit relationship.

Secondly, its important to clearly put a plan of action in place before you spend any money on equipment or other resources. Your plan should be informed by your business needs while the equipment you buy and the way you configure your wireless network will be driven by your plan! A good starting point is to do a quick survey of your computing environment.
Some of the major questions to ask yourself are:

  1. How is your present networking infrastructure configured?
  2. Do you regularly expand or reorganize your office and would like a rapid transition from one configuration to the other?
  3. Does your staff conduct business at locations away from their primary work area, but could benefit from anytime, anywhere access to important data?
  4. Are you working on a bugdet and would like to cut on installation cost as well as improve the aesthetic appearance of your office?
  5. Does your staff use laptops, PDA's, Hand held computers and other WIFI enabled devices?
  6. What is the layout of your office in terms of buildings, corridors and other open spaces?

Based on the above survey, assess the most appropriate integration points, determine the required equipment and most importantly, stick to your budget. Then we will assist to identify a potential pilot program to test the wireless integration. A practical example is to start with IT department where there is more likely to be a reasonable number of wifi devices.If you start small and plan to grow your wireless network, you have the opportunity to see if your wireless solution has the effect you thought it would and to learn more about wireless capabilities.

After drawing your plan of action and determining the required devices comes the actual implementation. This involves erecting the devices in strategic positions, configurating the devices to work with your wired network, confirming connectivity within the wireless network and between wired and wireless LANs and finally establishing a procedure to manage the wireless LAN alongside the wired LAN.
