Wireless

The average user has two or more mobile devices connected to the network. Those devices are demanding more bandwidth with video and multimedia apps becoming the norm. Networks cannot keep up with these demands. The result is frustrated users due to dead spots, hotspots and over-engineered security.

This mobile mindset is transforming business processes and requires strategic planning to integrate the right components to fit specific environments and needs. Iron Bow works to meet this mobile demand securely and efficiently, creating a springboard for a more mature and evolved system in the future.

Managing the Wire in Wireless

Wireless is a bit of a misnomer. Every wireless network does in fact have a main wire (a cable, really) that connects it to the Internet. Iron Bow Technologies begins our support of wireless by making sure that hard-wired connection is set up to support all of the wireless access points and mobile use.

The Iron Bow team works with existing infrastructure to negotiate speeds and prioritize traffic so that older cables can better support today’s wireless traffic.

Wireless is Physical

The goal of wireless is connectivity wherever you are in an environment. Wireless must conform to the limitations of the physical environment to meet this goal. The type of material used in building construction, how people move and work in a space, even weather patterns have a huge impact on wireless service. Iron Bow’s holistic approach to wireless looks at all of these elements as physical barriers to wireless access.

Wireless Assessment

Whether the need is to upgrade wireless technologies or do an initial deployment in a new facility, a wireless assessment can gauge the predictability of access points and coverage gaps. Iron Bow Wireless Assessments confidently determine signal coverage, throughput requirements, interfering sources, dead spots, potential roaming behavior and more. Assessments look at:

  • Gear
  • Coverage
  • Devices
  • Security
  • Configurations

We can then determine the best design and number of placements, access points for coverage and deployment approach.

Wireless Enablement

Meeting access demands should not supersede security demands, but sometimes users simply need to reach out to the Internet, not private networks, to complete their work on mobile devices. Iron Bow has worked with numerous secure facilities to install secure air gap coverage allowing wireless users, be they guests or employees, to access the Internet without ever touching the network.

Prioritizing traffic types or even users ensure both security demands and Quality of Service is being met for everyone. Configurations with an eye toward security provide visibility into who is accessing networks and can allow for tiered access for different users.
