If you are finding black spots around your office space, or that one office has better internet service than the rest of the building, multiple access points will provide a more robust connection throughout. The placement of access points is key. We can use our WiFi heatmap tools to show you a visual representation of your WiFi coverage and eliminate any dead spots or interference.
Our team of specialists can carry out a detailed site survey to ensure you receive the highest quality network solution. This survey will include coverage and performance reviews to ensure you have your access points in the best locations to cover the widest area and limit signal interference.
Network issues can arise if too many devices are connected to one single access point, which results in overloading when using a single router. The router then tries to balance out the bandwidth across the devices which can limit speeds. With multiple access points, the hardware distributes the load evenly to improve the speeds and connections.
The WiFi Specialist can help set up your solution with device limits to each access point to ensure the network is running reliably for all clients connected.
Access points can also be set up for roaming so that your connection stays with you as you move from room to room connecting to the nearest access point seamlessly and preventing connection drop outs as you move around from room to room.
Depending on your internet set up and your requirements you can set up multiple SSIDs for the same network through your access points. This allows for guest WiFi and also for a separate network for employees’ personal devices. This is a useful tool if you are happy to provide WiFi for your employees as it creates a security layer for your network and prohibits large personal downloads affecting bandwidth speed. As with guest WiFi you are able to limit what a user can do on certain SSIDs to protect your primary network.
