Other Wireless Solutions
Wireless Voice over IP (wVoIP)
are the "killer app" of wireless networking and offer
enormous benefits. However they are also one of the
most demanding and difficult solutions to implement.
Systems such as Vocera or phones from Cisco or SpectraLink
need stellar coverage and must also consider capacity
issues. Poorly implemented solutions result in
unacceptable sound quality. Too few access points can
result in dead spots and dropped calls, while too many
access points can cause co-channel interference...
to small business, the benefits of making applications
mobile is obvious and highly desired. In many cases,
client-server applications originally written for wired
(Ethernet) networks are ported to a wireless environment.
These applications are often "stateful," meaning they expect
a constant connection. This means unless the wireless
network is extremely well-implemented, results will be
inconsistent and often lead to the application crashing
one of the verticals to benefit most from wireless
networking. Materials handling, inventory and asset
management using wands, scanners and imagers can
significantly increase accuracy, efficiency and
productivity. However, due to the constantly changing
environment, large amounts of highly absorptive and
reflective material, heavy machinery and the need for high
levels of mobility...
Wireless Bridge Links
organization has grown to the point of needing connectivity
between multiple buildings, providing reliable and
affordable data throughput becomes a challenge.
Monthly charges from poor performing dedicated leased lines
make implementing a direct link highly attractive.
However, the cost of running fiber or other wired solution
is often cost prohibitive, making a wireless bridge link an
viable alternative. Because these backbone links must
be highly reliable, the need for a well-implemented wireless
network is critical...
From K-12 to
college campuses, laptops have become commonplace with
students and teachers. Whether for Internet access
across an entire campus, or connectivity for client-server
applications, wireless networking has become a fixture for
education, in lieu of enduring the expense and
disruptiveness of physically cabling the facilities...
resorts to budget hotels, guests expect nothing less today
than Internet connectivity. To remain competitive,
hotels must offer this service in not only their conference
rooms, but throughout the entire facilities. Wireless
networks make this possible in an affordable way, without
the burden of wiring every room. Designing these
systems to provide the required coverage and reliability
needed can be achieved on almost any budget...
Indoor and Outdoor Mesh
replace the standard wired backhaul to connect access points
together with a wireless connection and offer self-healing
and dynamic route optimization capabilities to offer a
simple and cost-effective solution for deployment.
Outdoor wireless Mesh solutions allow government agencies to
minimize capital, deployment, and operational expenses when
deploying high-performance broadband to improve services for
employees and local residents.
Government and Military
Military organizations see numerous benefits from wireless
networks. Implementations have unique restrictions
such as FIPS 140.2 security standards, etc. that require
careful navigation from knowledgeable professionals to
ensure regulatory compliance. With numerous references
from organizations such as the Dept. of Energy, Dept. of
Agriculture, and the US Army Reserve, we can ensure
successful and reliable implementations.
Real-Time Location Systems
asset tracking, IT management, and location-based security
to Enhanced 911 services, asset management, and workflow
automation, Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) can
simultaneously track the physical location (within a few
meters) of thousands of devices from within a WLAN
infrastructure. Historical location information can be
used for location trending, rapid problem resolution, and RF
capacity management. However, to obtain such high
resolution results, advanced wireless site surveys must be
