Building a successful, secure wireless network requires careful planning, implementation, and on-going support. How many access points are needed? What must be done to ensure your network is not being hacked? Trust Quest for the answers. From design and assessment to security and compliance, we’ve got wireless wired.
If you are just now considering implementing a wireless network, there is no better place to start than with a complete wireless assessment. A wireless engineer will meet with you to determine unique requirements for specific signal coverage, roaming, cabling, and aesthetics, and to discuss security recommendations. We then perform a spectrum analysis to determine the number and placement of access points to provide optimum coverage. Our wireless network site assessment report details any necessary changes to your existing network, equipment placement, power considerations, and wiring requirements. Finally, we provide a detailed report identifying recommended access point positions.
Are there holes in your existing wireless network? Quest can help you find and fix them. And, if you are experiencing network downtime, slow connection speeds, or coverage drop-offs, we will supply you the information necessary to correct those problems. Whether the issue is the number or location of access points, or your network infrastructure, a Quest site assessment provides the answers necessary to enhance and secure your wireless network.
A wireless network is an open target for hackers and unauthorized access. After meeting with a Quest wireless engineer, many organizations are surprised to learn that most unauthorized access comes from their own employees. Laptops are inexpensive and most newer ones come equipped with wireless cards. What harm could there be in tapping into the network and checking a few sports scores? Or checking personal email? The reality is, we’re living in a new, interconnected world. What your employees do on your network can quickly become actionable. And with regulations like Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, and the GLBA, you may be at greater risk than you think.
