Progent's Predictive Wi-Fi Planning Services
Progent's predictive Wi-Fi planning services can be carried out offsite and make use of cutting-edge RF modeling and analysis software to design a cost-effective Wi-Fi network. With predictive planning, you provide Progent's Wi-Fi professionals your facility's floor plans and describe your environment including walls, doors, cable access, stairways, and relevant materials. You also define your coverage, density, and throughput targets as well as your constraints. In addition, you estimate the kinds of endpoints your clients will connect, the software they will use, and the maximum traffic they will produce. Progent will use your information to build a digital model of your environment and develop a design that includes the most appropriate vendors for your APs and controllers, the recommended number of access points, their optimal location and antenna type, their most effective settings and their anticipated performance.
Progent's Wi-Fi modeling services help you predict coverage, performance, and capacity
Progent's On-premises Wi-Fi Site Survey
Progent's on-premises Wi-Fi survey uses Ekahau's purpose-built RF signal collection device and related software tools to help you to validate, optimize, and debug your current Wi-Fi deployment. This is commonly undertaken immediately after a new installation or used as a diagnostic tool to scale, optimize, or debug a mature wireless LAN. Available throughout the United States, Progent's on-premises Wi-Fi site survey services feature walkthrough testing for RF coverage and interference, checking for access point overpopulation, signal propagation mapping, data protection auditing, and identification of optimum locations for customer-specified Wi-Fi Access Points.
Progent's consultants can deliver remote and onsite guidance for a broad range of Wi-Fi access points and offer services such as Aironet wireless access point integration, Cisco Meraki wireless AP cloud management, Cisco Small Business 100/300/500 Wi-Fi access point configuration, Catalyst Wi-Fi access point solution design, Ubiquiti UniFi WiFi access point integration, and Apple AirPort Wi-Fi AP installation. Progent's on-premises survey includes consultation with your network management to define performance parameters for the WLAN. Progent's RCCD and Ekahau certified Wi-Fi site survey engineers can recommend cost-effective Wi-Fi LAN improvements that utilize the latest Wi-Fi products and provide maximum ROI.
Modern Wi-Fi site survey hardware and apps help you validate, tune, and troubleshoot your WLAN
Progent can provide expertise for building a modern Bring Your Own Device Wi-Fi network by delivering services such as iPhone and iPad integration, and Android phone and tablet consulting. iPhones and iPads, Androids, Windows Phones, and other handheld endpoints can present user density challenges and may also create transmission power imbalances that require special configuration of APs. Progent's wireless site survey provides the information you need to understand these challenges and design an efficient and effective BYOD ecosystem.
