Tailoring a wireless network to you
When installing or improving a wireless network, some of the things we always consider are the size of the area, how much of the area needs coverage, how many devices will be using the network, the infrastructure around the area, and if there are any interferences (e.g., other networks). This is information that we collect through a Wi-Fi Survey, performed by our team at Velez Managed Services.
Here at Velez, we use a Wi-Fi survey as a way of discovering how to optimize the network in the area you’re working in for it to work in the most efficient way possible. We use the resources and space you have in order to get the best wireless network for your company. We focus on the capacity of the network, the roaming capabilities, the data rates and quality of the network to ensure you are working with the best network for your company needs.
Why you need a Wi-Fi survey
If you are a company that needs a new network in a new building, we can perform a planner survey that will make sure you are optimising the area you are working in to receive the best connection. All we need is a detailed plan of the building and area from you and we can complete this virtually. This will ensure you are ready to work in an area that is suited to your company needs.
A passive survey can be made to look at the existing access points and Wi-Fi environment. We use radio frequency software to gather information about access point coverage, signal strength and any interferences. We focus on the environment around the area you’re working in, rather than the company network itself, to find characteristics about existing networks. This helps us optimise the space you have and figure out how to provide you with the best network, or how to update your existing network to work for you.
If it seems like something is wrong with your existing network, we can perform an active survey to figure out the problem. We’ll collect data about existing networks and access points to find out what needs to be troubleshooted or fixed, then send our technicians out to fix the problem as soon as possible.
How this benefits your company
- Saving money is the main benefit of a Wi-Fi survey. The process can help prevent poor decisions from being made due to lack of knowledge, such as placing more access points in the area. Instead, with a Wi-Fi survey you can utilize what you have and prevent any extra money being spent.
- Safety is a large focus of a company, weather it is employees or data, everything needs to be protected. A Wi-Fi survey ensures connections are working, which ensures emergency services can be contacted at any time. Security breaches can also be predicted with a Wi-Fi survey as we can figure out where your data is most vulnerable to loss or corruption. This keeps your data safe at all times.
- Personalize the area you work in to make it the best for you. We will work with you and ensure your network works in the most efficient way for your company by considering the capacity of users, the size of the space, and any interferences.
- Think ahead– we can use our software to predict what future problems may occur within your network, and can prevent them from happening, saving you money.
