Progent's Predictive Wi-Fi Planning Services
Progent's predictive Wi-Fi design services can be performed remotely and utilize advanced RF modeling, simulation, and analysis software to design an efficient wireless network. With predictive design, you provide Progent's Wi-Fi professionals with your floor plans and a description of your physical environment including walls, doors, cabling, elevator shafts, and building materials. You also specify your coverage, capacity, and performance requirements as well as any constraints. In addition, you estimate the types of endpoint devices your clients will use, the applications they will run, and the peak traffic volume they will generate. Progent will use your input to build a mathematical model of your facility and develop a plan that details the preferred vendor for your access points, the recommended number of APs, their optimal placement and antenna type, their most effective configuration and power settings, and their predicted performance.

Progent's On-premises Wi-Fi Site Survey
Progent's on-premises Wi-Fi site survey services utilize a specialized RF signal measurement device to help you validate, optimize, and debug an existing Wi-Fi infrastructure. This is commonly performed immediately after a new deployment or as a diagnostic tool to tune or troubleshoot a mature Wi-Fi LAN. Available throughout the U.S., Progent's on-premises Wi-Fi site survey services feature RF and security audits of your current Wi-Fi environment, testing for RF interference, detection of access point overpopulation, RF propagation modeling, plus confirmation of optimum quantity, location, and configuration for customer-specified Wi-Fi access points. Progent offers expertise with a wide range of APs and offers services that include Cisco Aironet integration, Cisco Meraki deployment and cloud management, Cisco Small Business 100/300/500 AP consulting, Cisco Catalyst AP solution design, Ubiquity UniFi configuration, and Apple AirPort access point installation. The on-premises survey includes RF scanning as well as interviews with your IT management and end users to refine functional parameters for the WLAN. Progent's BICSI RCDD and Ekahau certified Wi-Fi survey engineers can generate heat maps that depict the current state of your Wi-Fi network and identity trouble spots in coverage, capacity, or RF interference. Progent can also propose cost-effective improvements that incorporate the latest Wi-Fi technology and deliver maximum business value.
Advanced Wi-Fi site survey hardware and apps help you validate, tune, and debug your WLAN
Progent offers expertise for creating a state-of-the-art BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environment by offering services such as iPhone and iPad integration and Android phone and tablet consulting. iPhones and iPads, Androids, Windows Phones, and other handheld devices can pose client density challenges and may also create transmit power mismatches that require special configuration of access points. Progent's Wi-Fi site survey services provide the insight needed to address these issues and design an affordable and effective BYOD implementation.
