Wireless access throughout your campus breaks the boundaries of delivering information and communication. Careful planning and consideration is necessary to make these implementations a success. Before beginning, you need to answer these questions. “Where do we want coverage?” “How many devices do we want to support?” “Will we want BYOD?”. Having clearly defined expectations will make for a successful deployment, and LICN is here to help you get there.
The first of many decisions should be where you will want the wireless to be accessible, now and moving forward. Indoor and outdoor coverage? This will help determine how many access points will be needed and where they will be placed to cover the desired area, with cabling and network equipment installed as necessary. Even if you don’t have the budget to fully achieve everything right now, setting the proper groundwork to make the project scalable to get there later is key.
