Enterprise WiFi

Robust, reliable enterprise wifi networks have three things in common: Proper planning, strong execution, and ongoing care.

Velaspan organizes these into three phases – design, deploy, and manage – each comprised of several possible steps. Whatever your starting point, we organize accordingly to deliver secure, high-performance wireless that’s everything your business needs it to be.

Design

Use-Case Assessment

We kick off with use-case assessments for good reason: Their findings inform every aspect of network design. Our engineering team meets with individuals at all levels of your organization, asks the right questions about everything from user behavior to devices, and only then begins devising your network blueprint.

Vendor Selection

The right vendor is everything. As your vendor neutral advisor and advocate, Velaspan lets your needs and only your needs guide our hardware recommendations. Beyond suggesting the right manufacturer (which directly impacts network planning and design), we protect against the wrong hardware ecosystem – a common and costly misstep.

Network Architecture

Taking cues from all of the above, Velaspan builds a playbook that speaks to your system’s characteristics and requirements – then leans on it heavily throughout deployment.

Deploy

Predictive Modeling

Predictive modeling lets us marry network design to physical spaces undergoing a remodel, or that have yet to be built. We also tap predictive modeling when in-person visits aren’t practical or feasible. Our certified engineers’ extensive experience lets us simulate coverage to determine optimal layout and address anticipated connectivity needs.

Pre-Construction Planning

Early and often, our team engages with your new construction build in real time. The sooner we get involved, the more readily we can make adjustments as needed – key to seamless installation and network readiness when the structure is complete.

Site Survey

Nothing beats being there. Onsite surveys of finished buildings let us verify the constructability of our network design. We validate the accuracy of planning and modeling, collect location data, map design to the completed build, and ensure optimal access point placement – bringing a tremendous amount of certainty to your network as it’s deployed.

Network Deployment

Whether Velaspan simply assists or oversees the full deployment effort (up to and including service introduction and change control), we’re on the lookout for installation errors and other common issues that can impact performance, connectivity, and network longevity.

System Validation

Now that your network’s deployed, we need to make sure it works as expected. System validation maps coverage from top to bottom, letting us identify and remediate any shortcomings before it’s green-lit for users.

Manage

WLAN Coverage Assessment

Is your high-performance wireless network healthy enough to keep going – or to handle more, if needed? Onsite WLAN coverage assessments gauge readiness and reliability. Ideally, coverage assessments are performed in conjunction with a configuration review to provide a complete picture of your wifi reality.

Configuration Review

With an eye toward security, performance, and reliability, our consultants analyze your configuration and identify opportunities for optimization and improvement – so you get the most from your network.

Operational Support

Monitoring and incident response. Support and troubleshooting. Carefully-timed updates. Velaspan supports your network operations team across all of the above, helping to solve most problems and engaging the manufacturer on your behalf if needed. Our involvement ensures ongoing network performance and timely solutions when and if issues arise.

Life-Cycle Management

A cohesive life-cycle management plan across your wifi deployments optimizes hardware life expectancy and gets you maximum mileage from your network – without sacrificing performance. With supply chain issues stalling network redesigns worldwide, network longevity and reliability have become more essential than ever before.

Troubleshooting

Wireless problems are often complex and tough to reproduce on demand. Our involvement ensures diagnostic efficiency and effectiveness – and can usually be executed remotely, to boot. We typically begin with a coverage assessment then make changes and conduct tests as needed to ensure a methodical solution that spells success.
