Wireless Deployment Planning and Optimisation

By Networking No Comments

The biggest problem businesses face with their wireless LAN deployments is the inadequate wireless deployment planning which ultimately results in coverage issues, unnecessary coverage, and ultimately poor business application performance. We have found that more often than not this issue comes back to poor or in-adequate pre-deployment planning of the wireless network. Using a wireless planning utility such as Fortinet’s Fortiplanner Trucell is able to ensure a successful Wifi deployment. We can import a floor-plan of your environment, draw in the obstructions, select the type of Access Point and automatically calculate the number and placement of the Access Points. The tool utilises a sophisticated signal propagation ray tracing algorithms to estimate signal loss and bounce based on objects that can cause Radio Frequency interference, such interference caused by walls, windows, elevators shafts and glass. Additionally application scenarios such as VoIP, high priority data or normal can ensure adequate wireless LAN coverage for your specific requirements.

Post Deployment Site Survey

Our Site Survey Analysis uses the Wireless LAN adapter to detect signal level from your deployed Access Points, allowing us to confirm the wireless LAN coverage based on actual real-world analysis. Our engineers will walk around the environment to take readings, we can combined these measurements to report coverage holes that may been to be fixed. Resolving post-deployment issues with a site survey will reduce the headaches and time-consuming troubleshooting once your business users begin log gin on to the new wireless LAN.

Real-time Coverage Heat-Map and Performance Visualisation

Devices specifically mobile devices by nature move around your organisation throughout the day. As a result, deep visibility into the wireless network is essential to uncover coverage holes and areas of congestion. We are able to connect directly to any number of Access Points and provide real-time visualisation of wireless coverage, connected clients and failed Access Points, simplifying troubleshooting and reducing help desk tickets.
