The cost-efficiency and reliability of Wireless local area networks (WLANs) can be ensured through methodical planning, including coverage and radio planning. As well as the planning and design, the integration of your Wireless networks, with existing infrastructure, and information security policies should also be highly prioritised.
With office based and remote workers accessing your networks from a growing range of devices, unified network solutions are now, more than ever, in demand. Providing a cohesive view of both wireless and wired users enables IT departments to define consistent permissions to the network, based on identity, device type, location, and time of day, regardless of the connection type.
However, there’s a big difference between building a stand-alone WLAN and integrating a WLAN with your existing LAN. A successful WLAN implementation requires your new technology to be fully integrated into your organisation with process, including testing, verifying and managing your technology migration. To do this seamlessly and deliver truly synonymous and integrated wireless network solutions requires an overarching technical understanding of Cabling, Networking and Wireless technologies.
Incorporating new technologies, into your networks, converting existing technologies and maintaining the operation of legacy network equipment enables the deployment of highly reliable, standards-based wireless LAN infrastructures for:
- Complex network upgrades
- Migrations and consolidations
- Remote working
- BYOD integration
