What to expect during a wireless network installation
To ensure optimal performance and maximum throughput, your wireless network installation is a project that needs thorough planning, testing, and research. Otherwise, you may have to deal with Wifi & system failures repeatedly, which can adversely impact business operations.
There are various reasons Wi-Fi installations fail. It could be as a result of insufficient capacity, poor coverage or placement, interference issues or bad design. This is why wireless network installations should only be handled by experts with years of experience in the industry.
Let’s take a look at what to expect when Priority Networking undertakes your wireless network installation.
Before commencing a wireless installation project, experts always conduct a wireless survey. Wireless surveys help to identify optimum locations for mesh nodes and access points for effective coverage and optimal performance.
However, your company needs to communicate its expectations and requirements before the survey is conducted. This helps facilitate proper assessment of the coverage area. For instance, will the wireless network run VoIP? If so, what capabilities and systems are you looking to leverage?
Model or manufacturer preferences
Before your wireless network installation project commences, you should communicate any preferences you may have for equipment models or manufacturers of components such as firewalls, switches or access points.
This enables Priority Networking’s team of professionals to take them into consideration when drawing up design and building the budget.
Pre-configuration of equipment
Our expert installation professionals ensure that all pieces of wireless equipment are pre-configured before installation at the client site. This reduces the overall time required for installation so that clients only experience minimum disruption to daily business activities.
Monitoring of network (Managed Services)
Once the equipment is installed, various installation and signal coverage tests are carried out to ensure that the wireless network meets or surpasses performance and throughput requirements. Based on their findings, they could also tweak the configuration setting to facilitate optimal performance. Managed services can be provided, so that Priority Networking can instantly start monitoring your WiFi network to ensure that it remains at peak performance levels and that your company’s WAN connection (internet connectivity) and LAN performance is not compromised.
The choice of a wireless network installer might be the difference between a failed, problematic installation or one that delivers optimal performance and maximum throughput at all times of the day. When looking for wireless network installers, always choose one with extensive expertise and experience in the industry, as well as a verifiable work portfolio.
By leveraging the expert services of Priority Networking, a leading company in the wireless networking industry, you can be assured of optimal round-the-clock performance of your wireless network.
