Wireless Consulting ServicesProgentís Wireless Consulting Services offer small businesses a fast, affordable way to make smart choices for deploying the latest wireless technology. Few in-house IT staffs have the expertise to keep track of the fast-changing world of wireless products and services, and even fewer have the field experience to cut through the hype in order to identify and integrate optimal connectivity solutions.

Progentís extensive background both as an integrator and consumer of wireless technology makes it possible to offer expert consulting support for a broad range of wireless applications including:

  • Mobile connectivity
  • In-building networking
  • Building-to-building bridging

Mobile connectivity
A large and growing array of portable devices are available to connect mobile workers wirelessly to vital applications such as email or to enable remote wireless access to the corporate information network. Products such the RIM BlackBerry line of wireless handhelds or cell phone cards that act as wireless modems for notebook computers can dramatically enhance on-the-road productivity. However, choosing the appropriate devices for your business and integrating them securely and efficiently into your network can be challenging without expert help.

BlackBerry pagerSprint Connection CardProgentís consultants can save your business time and money by using their wireless expertise to help you select and configure mobile connectivity solutions that make sense for your business. Progent can also optimize your IT infrastructure so that mobile data devices work better. For example, Progent can help you migrate to Microsoft Exchange 2003 Server, which significantly improves support for mobile workers by adding a broader Web Outlook feature set, Outlook 2003 performance improvements via MAPI compression, lower latency for wireless modems, HTTP access from Outlook 2003, plus HTML mobile phone browser support.

In-building Networking
Cisco Access PointCisco CardIf you want to set up a high-performance wireless network based on any version of 802.11 (WiFi) technology, Progentís Cisco-certified consultants can help you build a solution that is secure, reliable, manageable and easy to expand. Progent can recommend and integrate access points, wireless LAN client adapters, bridges, antennas and accessories. Progent can also propose and implement a wireless security strategy to deny intruders access to the wireless network or its data.

Building-to-Building Bridging
Proxim TsunamiLicense-free wireless bridges offer a quick and affordable way to establish secure, high-speed data connections between buildings. This can eliminate the cost of an extra leased line, provide an emergency redundant communication link, or act as an inexpensive data backhaul. By reducing installation costs and eliminating recurring fees associated with standard T1, E1 or DS-3 lines, wireless bridges can often pay for themselves within a few months. Data rates for various wireless bridges range from 1.1 Mbps to a gigabit and distance between buildings can exceed 40 miles.

Progent offers expert wireless consulting to help you plan, implement and maintain point-to-point and point-to-multipoint wireless building-to-building bridging.

Wireless Case Study
An independent school system in Northern California occupies two campuses, about 1.5 miles apart, housing its elementary school and middle school. The sites are in the foothills, making line-of-sight possible.

The school requires a link between the campuses for data traffic and for Voice over IP capability for the phone system used by the administration offices and classrooms. The school considered a dedicated T1 or Frame Relay line, but the re-occurring costs and equipment expense were prohibitive for a small private school. To keep costs under control, they decided to go wireless.

The schoolís original 802.11b solution was too slow. The remote site complained of network sluggishness and dropped or fuzzy phone calls. Progent assessed the wireless link and found that it was saturated. To make matters worse, neighbors were causing interference with their publicly available access point.

Progent proposed Proximís Tsunami 60Mbps wireless bridge devices. This inexpensive solution offers security, high speed, plus immunity from 802.11 interference. Progent installed the link in about one day, requiring no downtime during business hours. The school noticed immediate improvements. Network performance improved 10 times, phone problems went away, and network latency decreased from 240 to 40 milliseconds. The Proxim solution also provided the school with a hot-swap redundant back-up wireless link between sites.
