Wireless Deployment

 

Wireless Deployment from Rock Island enables you to forget expensive, full-time engineers!

Whether a new network builds or an upgrade, our local engineers’ teams can provide an on-site survey and installation of your wireless network solution. Our Engineers have the f experience necessary to hit the ground running, securely installing, configuring, and testing your wireless network connection to ensure everything you need is operating at peak performance for your business or estate.

‍Wireless Deployment Planning

Wireless Site Survey

Whether your wireless network is not providing the Quality of Service it used to, or you are starting new construction, a wireless site survey will determine the network solution that’s right for you. Site surveys allow us to determine the proper plan to fit your wireless needs.

Findings from the survey will help plan for:

    • Interference from outside sources.
    • AP (access point) placement for equal distribution.
    • Load management
    • Floor layout

Predictive Site Survey

A predictive site survey utilizes software and RF algorithms to determine the best placement for your AP equipment.

Benefits of a predictive survey:

  • Allows a network plan to be drafted accurately to fit your business or home.
  • Can be used to obtain the budget required for deployment.

Onsite Survey

An onsite survey is beneficial when planning an upgrade to an existing network or after a remodel. This type of survey is more detailed as the technician will be testing with a live network. These tests will identify weak or overloaded areas. Once the trouble areas are found, we will determine if new equipment needs to be installed or wireless device channels need to be changed.

Onsite surveys are more in-depth but yield better results for existing hardware deployments.

Configuration of Wireless Access Points and Wireless Controllers

Your Employees need a solution that allows them to remain connected to the network, even if they need to move around from one area to another. Our engineers will make sure your team has a reliable connection in every corner of the building.

The configuration process includes

  1. Balancing power levels
  2. Frequency bands to be used (2.4 GHz or 5GHz)
  3. Separating channels for adjacent AP’s (if multiple are deployed)
  4. Verify Controllers are balancing traffic loads properly
  5. Setting network security protocols

Cabling (if needed)

If you have an existing network receiving an upgrade, AP relocation may be necessary to meet your needs. Our Engineers are fully capable of running new Ethernet lines from your AP/controller(s) to your server. This ensures rapid deployment while minimizing the need for the cost increase.

Deployment of Wireless Access Points (Based on the Results of a Site Survey) & Controllers

Using the data gathered during the survey process, the deployment process is very straightforward. In an existing building, the deployment process can be as simple as relocating or adding equipment. In new deployment, this process is done towards the end of the build, typically after your servers have been installed.

Post Installation Wireless Survey

Once deployment is complete, we can then begin the post-installation survey. This is a verification step to ensure all requirements have been met. The survey will provide network security measures that are working. We will also test to ensure no conflicts exist within the network and that all the controllers balance the loads adequately (where applicable). Once this is complete, your network is ready for use.
