Get it built right with wireless “blueprints”
Just like a house or an office building structure, there should be a plan in which you know the expected outcome for wireless. Petra Technologies can perform a site survey to let you know what’s existing and what needs to be deployed to avoid poor wireless performance. We find that most people buy a wireless router off the shelf and install it without knowing what else is lurking around in the air. Secondly, when multiple wireless access points are installed within one organization, they should work together. Off-the-shelf units are not designed to work together and can cause worse performance. The following graphs show a real world analysis that we used to design and install a campus wireless system, knowing how it was going to perform.
Wireless for Public Internet Access
This is a great solution for RV parks, hotel/motels, campgrounds, waiting rooms, restaurants or anywhere you wish to add public internet access. Our wireless solutions provide wireless units which allow you to offer your guests wireless internet connectivity throughout your facility or just in certain areas, and does it economically. The systems have built-in bridging to extend the reach into non-wired areas. Our wireless solutions provide powerful routers that can manage hundreds of both wireless and wired clients simultaneously. The access management system allows control of device usage, internet access and usage time.
Wireless for Secured Private and Public Access
Whether you’re adding wireless into an existing network or deploying a new wireless network from the ground up, security is your number one concern. Our solution makes wireless networking secure, simple and affordable with a secure distributed wireless solution.
Using multi-radio (IEEE 802.11a/b/g and 802.11b/g/ac) with optional Wave 2 technology, the distributed access points provide secure wireless LAN connectivity to users on the network as well as other wireless zones to separate public access from private systems. Utilizing the Virtual Access Point (VAP) feature, the access points can broadcast distinct SSIDs with dedicated authentication and privacy settings while sharing the same physical infrastructure.
Access points require no independent pre-configuration, as they are centrally configured, managed and updated by our cloud controller. Additional access points and switches automatically connect to the cloud controller and adopt the security policies for all wired and wireless traffic. This provides airtight wireless mobility for employees as well as secure Internet access for guests throughout the network.
