What are the key components of an Enterprise Grade Wi-Fi Network?
Making sure that this ‘last hop’ is as reliable as possible requires many considerations. Essential are N+X coverage to planning for resilience in case of failures as well as ensuring sufficient capacity, coverage and that roaming is seamless throughout the wireless zones. If Wi-Fi is considered business-critical, then resilience as well as reliability and performance should be among your design priorities.
An often overlooked part of Security is usability. In the same way that well-meaning, but poorly thought-out password requirements often resulted in lots of Post-It notes scribbled with passwords and stuck to monitors. Reducing the ease of use will tend to result in unauthorised workarounds and ‘Shadow IT’. In contrast, Toranet recommends Cloudpath to simplify the experience for the end-user, maintain the highest levels of security Gold Standards and reduce the workload on the network administrators. It also allows the WiFi network designer to provide well separated services with the same levels of security and simple login mechanisms.
In a business environment, many factors will affect Wi-Fi performance, coverage or connectivity speeds. Some problems can be easily identified whilst others will require a higher level of expertise to ensure you are maximising the available airtime in all bands. Toranet has a wealth of experience in delivering high-speed reliable Wi-Fi networks where density, coverage or both is a business requirement.
