The Do’s & Don’ts of WiFi Design

CARE HOME WIFI SITE SURVEY
Wifi site surveys are very important when designing and planning a new care home WiFi network. Numerous factors must be considered when designing a new wireless network, such as the number of residents, size and construction of the building, as well as any possible interference. Our experienced team of Ekahau certified engineers will visit your site and review all these aspects when carrying out an extensive site survey. The survey will then determine the quantity and location of the equipment needed to give the very best performance from your care home WiFi.
As well as surveying for a new network, we have vast experience in troubleshooting areas of WiFi loss within care home environments. Our certified engineers have a wealth of experience in diagnosing and solving issues within care home WiFi networks.
