Wi-Fi Design, Deployment and Support
Our team can provide the full life cycle of WiFi services from start to finish. We begin with our User Experience Workshop to identify the requirements for success. Once these success factors have been documented and agreed upon, we overlay the non-technical experience on the specific facility maps and determine what is required to deliver the experience. This creates our first project deliverable which is a customer-driven and authorized design on paper that will be used to drive the installation and associated engineering.
Using this approved design, equipment is then identified and procured in preparation for staging and deployment.
Staging is performed in a controlled lab environment to ensure adherence to the design. All equipment is labeled to match the design for ease of installation and inventory. Programming of equipment is performed and includes testing to verify the equipment is functional prior to being deployed. All programmed and staged equipment is then kitted by site or building and dispatched to the site for installation.
Installation is timed to ensure sensitive equipment is installed in a manner that prevents installation in harsh construction environments. All cabling efforts are performed during Low Voltage rough-in schedules prior to walls being constructed to minimize the installation cost. For existing construction equipment is staged and ready to be installed as crews work through a facility. As the equipment is installed it is documented in our installation application for real-time feedback to project and engineering resources. Upon completion of the installation, the system is turned on to ensure all components are enabled and functioning.
Once the system is online our site wi-fi certification and validation process begins. All project deliverables are compared to the original design and verified. Heat mapping is conducted to ensure coverage and proper signal propagation is attained. Data collectors are enabled and begin baseline testing to ensure system health prior to the site go live and in preparation for initial User Acceptance Testing. When design documents match final installation documents the system is certified as ready for use and moved into the appropriate support program. Alarms are enabled and actioned by our team as required to ensure ongoing system health
