Wifi Setup

WIFI Setup

Xpert IT Networks will integrate the WiFi system into your current network as well as install all the required wireless equipment and certify its operation. All cabling and power runs should be done and tested prior to the installation of access points.

Below is a list of activities that we can deploy during an installation:

  • Mounting of access points
  • Installation of enclosures on case-by-case basis (physical security
  • Mounting of antennas
  • Connection of antennas to access points
  • Connection of Backbone LAN to access points
  • Connection of power to access points
  • Installation and connection of remote power system
  • Verification of coverage

Configuration of access points and hardware to include:

  • Proper firmware level
  • Radio information (SSID, channel, bit rate)
  • IP addresses
  • Verification of backbone connectivity

The Advantages of WiFi Networks / WLANs

Mobility

The most obvious and significant advantage of WiFi networks. Workers can access shared resources without looking for a cable and a place to plug in. With the ever increasing usage of smart phone and pocket PC’s WiFi network are quickly becoming a must have asset to your network infrastructure.

Range of coverage

Coverage of a WLAN node can be extended by the use of access points.

Ease of use

Users need very little information to take advantage of a WLAN because it is transparent to a user’s network operating system

Installation speed and flexibility

Installation of a WLAN system can be fast and easy and can eliminate the need to pull cable through walls and ceilings. Furthermore, wireless LAN enables networks to be set up where wires might be impossible to install.

Scalability

Wireless networks can be designed to be extremely simple or complex. Wireless/WiFi networks can support large numbers of nodes and large physical areas by adding access points to extend coverage.

Reduced cost of ownership

Particularly in dynamic environments, requiring frequent modifications’ thanks to minimal cabling and installation costs per device and user. WLANs simplify moving, additions, and changes, the indirect costs of user downtime and administrative overhead are significantly reduced.
