Wireless Fidelity (Wi Fi) is a commonly used technology that allows electronic devices such as laptops, Ipads and Smart Phones to exchange data wirelessly over a computer network.
The 802.11 standards, created by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), defines and categorises the different types of Wi Fi networks and equipment available. Multiple variations of the basic 802.11 are now available including 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n and all have different bandwidth and distance capabilities.
ACS can guide you through these differing standards and recommend the one most suited to your needs and budget.
With over 4 million (and rapidly growing) hotspots in the UK, it could well be time for you to provide a hotspot for your customers or staff. ACS can create hotspots anywhere in your building (inside or out) and provide all the expertise to allow you to control who accesses it and when.Complete Building Coverage
ACS can design a system with overlapping hotspots to provide complete uninterrupted coverage within your building. We'll take into account your bandwidth requirements, building structure and number of users to design a customised system based on your needs.
From simple unmanaged systems up to WLAN controlled networks that allow seamless migration from hot spot to hotspot, ACS can design and install a system to meet your needs.Link Remote Buildings
ACS can create Wireless Bridges with specialised transmitting and receiving equipment to link buildings thousands of meters apart. Wireless Bridges are commonly used to allow data, phone calls and internet access to be easily shared at minimum cost.Use of Existing Network
It's not always necessary to install new (and expensive) infrastructure cabling to install a Wifi network. ACS will carry out a free site survey to identify any existing data points that can be used or re-allocated to reduce your costs as much as possible.
We can also take advantage of Power over Ethernet (PoE) to ensure that no extra power sockets are required for your system. For further information on PoE, Click Here.
