Progent's Predictive Wireless Design Services
Progent's predictive Wi-Fi design services can be performed remotely and utilize advanced RF simulation and analysis tools to plan an efficient Wi-Fi network. With predictive design, you send Progent's wireless professionals your facility's floor plans and describe your environment including walls, doors, cable access, elevator shafts, and building materials. You also specify your coverage, density, and performance targets as well as your constraints. Also, you estimate the kinds of endpoint devices your clients will operate, the applications they will run, and the maximum wireless traffic they will produce. Progent will utilize your information to create a digital simulation of your environment and devise a plan that includes the preferred vendors for your access points, the recommended number of APs, their ideal location and antenna selection, their proper configuration and power settings and their predicted performance.
