Wireless

The wireless networking market is growing rapidly as businesses discover the productivity benefits of going wire-free. The increased mobility that WiFi networks offer has proved beneficial in operations throughout manufacturing facilities, warehouses, transportation depot, hotels, airports, hospitals, colleges, large enterprises as well as convention centers. In the corporation, conference rooms, public areas, and branch offices constitute ideal venues for wireless LANs (WLANs).

Today's business environment is characterized by flatter organizations and an increasing mobile workforce. Users need access to the network well beyond their personal desktops. The WiFi networks fit well with this work environment, giving mobile users real-time access to information, regardless of worker location, for faster and more efficient decision making. Wireless LANs benefit the IT managers as well, allowing them to design, deploy, and enhance networks regardless of cabling / wiring, saving time, efforts and money.

Project Management

Top Notch Surveillance core competency is in providing a single point of contact, project management team for local business rollouts and technology deployments. Our staff will work with your IT department to advise you on the latest technologies and best solutions for your enterprise. Our goal is to help you and your company deploy a wireless network that will grow with your business in the future.

WiFi / WLAN Network Design / Engineering

Deployment of a wireless network requires careful planning. Business requirements and objectives need to be evaluated and a site survey must be undertaken to determine possible sources of interference. WiFi Networks can be tricky to implement in high interference areas, be incompatible with existing equipment and can open up security risks. WLANs are best used in addition to - rather than a replacement to wired networks. Our engineers will assure proper planning when designing and implementing your wireless network. The complexity of your network will vary depending on the obstacles within and the size of your facility.

Site Survey

A site survey is always performed first. This is a physical survey of the customer's premises to locate the best possible places to install access points and ensure 100% wireless coverage and optimum performance.

Before installing any wireless devices we perform a radio frequency (RF) test in order to better understand the behavior of radio waves within a facility. This is recommended because various obstacles such as doors, walls, elevator shafts and people might affect the radio frequency pattern, causing it to be irregular and unpredictable. Even if you are using omni-directional antennas, radio waves do not travel the same distance in all directions. The RF test can also detect any radio interference that might come from other sources and could affect the performance of the wireless LAN negatively. The ultimate goal of the site survey and RF test is to help determine the number and placement of the access points.

Wireless/ Wifi Equipment Installation

Top Notch Surveillance is "vendor agnostic" therefore we can install nationwide wireless / WiFi equipment from practically any wireless / WiFi vendor. Some of the equipment we have installed to date includes (but not limited to):

EnGenius
Linksys
Cisco Systems
Proxium

Access Points - WLAN Installation

Top Notch Surveillance will integrate the WiFi system into your current network as well as install all the required wireless equipment and certify its operation. All cabling and power runs should be done and tested prior to the installation of access points.

Below is a list of activities that one might expect during an installation:

Installation of enclosures on case-by-case basis (physical security)
Mounting of antennas
Connection of antennas to access points
Connection of Backbone LAN to access points
Connection of power to access points
Installation and connection of remote power system
Verification of coverage


Configuration of access points and hardware to include:

Proper firmware level
Radio information (SSID, channel, bit rate)
IP addresses
Verification of backbone connectivity

The Advantages of WiFi Networks / WLANs

Mobility

The most obvious and significant advantage of WiFi networks. Users can access shared resources without looking for a cable and a place to plug in

Range of coverage

coverage of a WLAN node can be extended by the use of access points

Wireless Networks are very easy to use

users need very little information to take advantage of a WLAN because it is transparent to a user's network operating system

Installation speed and flexibility

Installation of a WLAN system can be fast and easy and can eliminate the need to pull cable through walls and ceilings. Furthermore, wireless LAN enables networks to be set up where wires might be impossible to install.

Scalability

Wireless networks can be designed to be extremely simple or complex. WiFi networks can support large numbers of nodes and large physical areas by adding access points to extend coverage
