Here at Sceptre Networking we are able to offer the full package, supply, installation and maintenance of any wireless network.
Sceptres service to you will firstly include a free site survey. In this survey a fully experienced and qualified Project Manager will map out a design to provide the highest performing wireless solution for your environmental requirements. Our accredited Engineers will then work closely to the Project Managers briefing to ensure a clean, efficient and seamless installation, leaving you with a network you can depend on.
Wireless surveys are essential to design a wireless network capable of delivering a stable, fast and roaming connection for end users.
Predictive surveys are a useful tool to determine potential wireless access points locations and numbers. Survey software allows us to estimate the best locations for the access points to ensure wireless coverage to all required areas. Heat maps are then produced to show this predicted wireless coverage. This gives a guide as to potential budget costs and potential cabling locations.
Active Surveys allow us to visit site and survey using physical wireless access points to measure the signal strength. This is important in buildings where the design or construction materials can affect wireless signal.
Sceptre Networking are able to offer passive surveys to look at how your existing wireless network is performing. We walk round the site taking wireless signal readings to determine wireless speed, wireless channel usage and wireless strength coverage.
After the survey is complete, Sceptre Networking produce heat maps, which highlight to the client any areas the need improving. Sceptre Networking will also provide recommendations on how to improve these areas such as configuration changes, moving existing APs or purchasing extra APs.
Post Installation Survey
Sceptre Networking will conduct a Post Installation Wireless Survey to ensure the wireless network is installed as promised. This involves a site survey to check signal coverage in all areas where required.
What Sceptre Networking will provide from a survey:
- Heat plans of each floor to show signal strength and wireless AP/array locations
- Costing for chosen Wireless Network vendor broken down into hardware costs, software costs, support costs and installation/configuration costs.
- Technical information on the proposed wireless solution, to give the end user piece of mind in what can be delivered
Installation and Configuration of Wireless Network
Sceptre Networking are experienced in installing and configuring Wireless networks. Our engineers are all experienced and accredited to physically install the APs/array, and our Project Managers are experienced in configuring the wireless network to the customers requirements and wireless vendor best practices.
