WI-FI DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION

Wireless technology has profoundly evolved and substantially proliferated since its inception in 1997. WiFi is needed by every business in existence from private use to campuses, sports arenas, retail stores, enterprise-wide and common carrier wireless metropolitan area networks. But not all Wi-Fi is created equally and that is where most of you will find a challenge.

Knowing your intentions will save you time, money and resources and ensure that you invest in the right system that works best for your business up front. Mobility and the elimination of a wired infrastructure; the key benefits of wireless operation, give users the flexibility to communicate from wherever they may be at any given time. This has dramatically changed the way the world does business.

Our team of certified and experienced Wireless Engineers will work with you to determine and implement the most appropriate Wi-Fi solution for your business.

Wi-Fi Site Surveys & Reporting

The success of any Wi-Fi solution is hinged heavily on the design. The proper Design of a Wi-Fi solution entails many supporting activities that all form a complete understanding of the physical and logical requirements of the intended solution.

A critical part of the design is the actual physical survey of the intended coverage area. This is a task that is often neglected by many businesses and this is one of the major causes of connectivity issues. If you are in an environment where you experience symptoms like continuous signal drops, slow performance on some applications, staff or clients keep complaining about getting online or you keep experiencing outages; then more than likely, the design that has been implemented for your business was done without a proper Wi-Fi survey of the intended coverage area.

We know this can lead to frustration, loss of productivity , time and resources for your business. Instead you want the assurance of knowing that your Wi-Fi solution is consistently working so you can focus on the more critical areas of your business operations.

Physical survey + Design = Wi-Fi solution

Our BLU team stands ready to conduct site surveys and then engage and implement the best design solution for the sustainability of your business.

IP SURVEILLANCE

Nowadays, companies like yours should understand the importance of not just IT security but the security of your premises, yet in our work, we are recognizing that not many companies are placing emphasis on this aspect of their business.
