Why is good wireless so important in the workplace?
Wireless connectivity in the workplace is now necessary instead of a ‘nice to have’. Employees expect to be able to connect wirelessly in any location and receive the same experience as being at their desks. We provide design, implementation and validation services for delivering high-quality wireless networks using the latest tools and techniques.
What is an Opticore RF Survey?
An Opticore RF Survey and Wireless design audit will enable you to determine the health of your corporate wireless solution. It identifies critical areas where improvements are necessary to support the needs of your business and people.
This will gradually improve your wireless. We will provide you with a detailed report and recommendations explaining how to make the best use of wireless within your office space. We’ll outline the steps needed to make your wireless flawless.
The benefits of an Opticore RF Survey
Slow wireless is annoying.
Excellent connectivity is more essential than ever with the need for flexible working, hot desking and personal devices connected to the office wireless.
An Opticore RF Survey identifies issues such as an overloaded Wireless Access Points (WAP) and outlines practical solutions to these problems.
Optimise the layout of your space
Common office appliances such as microwaves, nearby phone masts, or DAS (distributed antenna system) systems can interfere with the signal and performance of your wireless network.
Understanding where to put WAP (wireless access points) and routers is essential when designing the layout of your office space with wireless coverage in mind.
Understand your Wireless needs
Increased usage of video conferencing, share spaces and collaboration tools are demanding a greater need for a more stringent wireless network, now more so than ever.
An Opticore RF Survey and Report gives you the information you need to optimise your wireless solution and deliver a premium service to your users.
Why conduct an Opticore RF Survey?
An Opticore RF survey allows you to examine your wireless solution to see what’s going on under the hood. It measures and confirms all the essential ingredients, such as coverage and signal strength. It will also provide a lot of other information to evaluate your RF design, such as:
Are your channels too wide? Is your power too high? It can tell you if an AP is overloaded with too many clients. It can identify interference from sources you might not even realise were a potential issue.
In addition, it can help identify all the usual suspects, such as neighbouring wireless networks, microwaves, Bluetooth devices or potentially any wireless device.
What your Opticore RF Survey and Report includes
An Opticore wireless expert will attend your premises with specialist equipment to ‘listen’ to your wireless. The data collected is then interpreted by our wireless experts. A strength/weakness heatmap is overlaid to the office floorplans, providing a graphical illustration of the network’s current performance.
Our network specialists will examine and evaluate the captured data and identify areas of concern. There are often multiple factors to consider and address. This could involve increasing the access point density and/or “tuning” some settings on the wireless controller to achieve the best possible results.
A detailed report will provide all of the issues and a prioritised list of recommended remediation activities. This will be shared and discussed with you to ensure you fully understand the results and their implications.
