Wireless Surveys

You may have noticed a couple of times over the past few weeks that I’ve been going through each building with a couple of different people carrying laptops and other tech equipment.  We’ve been soliciting price quotes for a new wireless network, and as part of that process, wireless companies must test signal strength achieved using their equipment in different spots  and document building materials used in each of our buildings.

Once this process is complete and we choose a vendor, our wireless network – currently made up of consumer-level Apple AirPort access points – will be replaced with an enterprise-level wireless network, which will provide significantly better coverage, reliability (no more restarting access points!), and speeds that will average about 5-30 times faster than our current wireless network.
