How do know if I need to update my network?
Common issues include slow throughput, frequent disconnection, difficulty roaming, and problems associated with logging in. If your internet is lagging on devices throughout your business, it’s time to consider updating your network.
How many devices will my network need to support?
On average, everyone owns more than six connected pieces of technology. Your network will need to be able to support these tools for each person on location – plan and prepare to ensure your organization and its network are capable.
What type of devices does my network support?
In addition to the number of devices, you’ll also need to consider the types of devices your network will support. These include:
- Desktop and mobile phones
- Smart devices
What level of security does my network need?
Depending on your business and how your organization will use its network, you’ll have specific security needs. Activo is happy to provide guidance and recommendations to ensure you have the proper security, policies, and procedures to keep data protected. Common network security protocols include:
- Network authentication (one-, two-, or three-factor)
- Intrusion prevention systems like anti-virus software
What role does location play in determining the type of wireless survey that will be suitable for me?
In general, on-site surveys (active and conventional) are easier to perform in urban or semi-urban settings whereas off-site surveys (predictive and passive) might be more suitable for remote locations.
What do I do if I don’t have a network infrastructure in place yet? Can Activo help?
If your organization doesn’t have an infrastructure in place or needs to upgrade what is there, Activo’s network technicians will work with you to assess your current needs and future needs before implementing the right solution.
If your organization already has wireless and networking infrastructure in place, Activo’s network technicians and Certified Wireless Network Administrators (CWNAs) provide managed wireless services that enable you to maximize the performance of your network.
What is network convergence?
Network convergence refers to the delivery of video, phone, and voice data over a single network and has become increasingly important due to growing customer demand.
What are the challenges associated with network convergence?
The most significant challenge when it comes to implementing network convergence is successfully sharing bandwidth without compromising on quality. As more and more users use a network to hold conference calls while sharing data and browsing the internet, the network can become overwhelmed. This is why you need your network and cabling infrastructure needs to be effectively and professionally installed and integrated, ensuring it’s ready to support your needs.
What are the benefits of transitioning to a converged network?
The two primary advantages associated with network convergence are reducing the amount of infrastructure that needs to be managed and simultaneously driving down costs.
What types of network surveys does Activo provide?
Activo provides several different wireless site surveys to provide answers at various stages through a networking solution build—from planning through to design, implementation, and maintenance—each providing you with a comprehensive report including heat maps, our findings, and our recommendations.
This type of survey is ideal for new builds, budgetary purposes, or more simple implementations. Our team of wireless professionals will use your building’s floorplans to create your environment virtually with planned AP locations and their intended parameters. This enables us to predict measurements and assess coverage throughout your facility.
A passive survey is used to assess the infrastructure you already have and determine non-Wi-Fi interference, gaps in signal coverage, throughput, channel interference, and more. It is well suited if WLAN is already in place and for shared office buildings.
This survey is used for post-installations, during a WLAN expansion, troubleshooting, and during a conventional survey. Our wireless network professionals will collect data to assess RSSI, channel overlap, co-channel interference, retry and loss rates, and more.
A conventional wireless survey is the most comprehensive planning tool available. It gives our wireless professionals the ability to collect true RF information about neighbouring networks, non-Wi-Fi interference, and true signal propagation and is often used during pre-installation phases and to take into consideration the physical environment and RF behaviours.
