80% of Wi-Fi Installations Are Incorrectly Installed

Unfortunately, this is a true statement and has been identified by many Wi-Fi professionals. We have been to plenty of sites where the Wi-Fi has not been installed properly. The key to a successful Wi-Fi installation is to properly plan everything. This involves a proper site survey and from that survey we can plan for the following.

  • Right placement of access points (eliminate dead spots)
  • Correct channel utilization
  • VoIP
  • Security
  • Network capacity
  • Guest networks
  • Spectrum utilization
  • Network design for 2.4 and 5 ghz

These are just a few of the points we check for when conducting a site survey. We always suggest running three types of survey and the first is a pre-deployment survey. If your moving into new premises or building new premises, we can run the survey with our own equipment to test for all the above areas and anything you might require. Post-deployment site survey, this is to confirm the network is working. Periodic health checks to make sure everything is running properly.

Security for your network is also a very important feature that should not be overlooked. A proper firewall should always be implemented. Wi-Fi security should be configured to a minimum of WPA2 AES. Firmware updates for all devices should be done regularly. Otherwise that device can be compromised by hackers.

If your existing network is causing problems, then please get in touch as we can analyze it with our tools and make the relevant recommendations or implementations.
