It can be tempting to lean on cable hardware and installation providers for wireless design. Their personnel are readily available, they’re familiar with your facility, and they even install the cable that supports the backbone of your network infrastructure. But relying on a cable vendor for the RF design that’s crucial to the performance of your network is a bit like asking your construction company to predict and design traffic patterns around your building. It just isn’t what they do.
Good wireless design requires a focused skill set and the expertise to examine any and all areas where wireless might affect, and more importantly, disrupt the user – and your business.
In today’s innovative world, technology demands more and more from your wireless network, and your business is counting on that technology. Here are three reasons to lean on Velapan’s team of specialists, as opposed to installation experts, for wireless design guaranteed to handle everything your business needs.
1) Design Expertise – Wireless design isn’t performed by cable generalists, so why let them determine how it will work? Unlike cable vendors, Velaspan spends all day, every day providing RF design in high-stakes environments to ensure high-performance Wi-Fi is available wherever it’s needed.
Our degree of attention extends well past what a cable vendor can be expected to deliver. Aesthetic considerations are often in the mix, too. Balancing aesthetics and Wi-Fi performance is a tightrope walk that cable vendors aren’t trained to ace. Lean on experts like Velaspan to balance Wi-Fi functionality with your enterprise’s unique aesthetic and architectural demands and preferences.
2) Use cases and specialty equipment – Cable vendors often install equidistant access points without considering things like concrete elevator shafts, user density, and dynamic environments. Velaspan knows better – in large part because we’ve collected thousands of use cases over years of consultative services that inform every project.
Take our work in hospitals. Equipment carts often require consistent wireless connections as they roll through corridors, elevators, basements and sometimes across entire campuses. Our use cases let us stay ahead of common connectivity challenges in scenarios like these, breaking down the coverage and highlighting and preventing possible weak points.
Just as important as this arsenal of use cases is the specialty equipment Velaspan uses to secure and maintain wireless across hardware brands. This includes tools that mimic every brand and generation of end users devices, letting us adjust design for each. As an ongoing partner, we also stay engaged beyond installation to monitor wireless performance, continuing with clients through the full lifecycle of their wireless network. With Velaspan, work’s not one and done. We check in on you regularly, saving you from network downtime and the costs (including opportunity costs) that come with it.
3) Training and certifications – Technology evolves at breakneck speed. Top technicians know the value of keeping up. Velaspan employs leading experts with industry-specific training and certifications and a commitment to constant learning. Our technicians and engineers attend regularly scheduled sessions about the latest technology and technology updates, including training sessions on software and best practices in wireless design.
Velaspan isn’t trained to pull cable or test fiber, and cable vendors aren’t trained to design wireless. Reach out to Velaspan for wireless design because wireless is all we do – which is why we do it best.
