Understanding the all the details of wireless networking services requires a team of trained specialists and years of experience. Meaning most organizations need outside help when considering wireless networking up grades or building a new system. ASCIO Wireless is a highly reputable system integration company providing top quality wireless network services and solutions that expertly serve a diverse range of businesses and business functions. We are confident in our abilities to meet the various requirements of businesses throughout our community, and invite you to further explore our offerings below.
Wireless Network Integration: Adding To Your Organization's Current Network
Wireless network integration involves adapting to a brand new wireless infrastructure, or adding to an already existing data/voice/video infrastructure. At ASCIO Wireless, we take pride in offering the businesses we serve the most advanced wireless network systems in the industry, while also making sure that the network is highly adaptable to accommodate for future technological advancements. Our detail oriented technicians thoroughly analyze the characteristics of the site as well as the specific requirements of the business to ensure delivery of a wireless network architecture that best serves each customer.
Wireless Deployment: Reliable Execution of a Designed Wireless Infrastructure
The design and deployment steps of the wireless network integration process are critical in terms of performance of a wireless infrastructure. For this reason, ASCIO Wireless never designs and deploys a network without first having a consultation with the customer to determine both the current and long-term operational and business needs. During consultation, ASCIO seeks to learn such information, including number of expected network users, required bandwidth, desired level of security, applications to be supported, and available budget. Following consultation, a wireless site survey is performed. Such surveys are important as there are a variety of variables that have a significant impact on performance, including availability of access points, radio frequencies and other environmental factors. After the survey is complete, providing technicians with a full understanding of the site, the design process can move forward.
Wireless Network Design: For Creating a New Network
After analyzing the characteristics of the site through a wireless site survey, ASCIO professionals are able to complete a network design that delivers the highest levels of performance while meeting each of the individual business requirements outlined during consultation. Once a complete design plan has been drawn, it is presented in detail to the customer for approval to ensure that the infrastructure meets all expectations before deployment begins.
Point-to-Point Wireless Bridge: Connects Two Fixed Sites
Point-to-Point (PTP) wireless is a cost effective alternative to cabling, creating a line of sight link between two fixed locations for secure and reliable transmission of data. The technology operates in either licensed or unlicensed radio frequencies at speeds between 1 Mbps and 1.25 Gbps.
PTP wireless technology generally does not require complex network configuration services as it acts merely as a link between two network devices. A simple bridge is created between these devices, leaving the heavier task of services, such as routing and traffic policing, on the networks in which the PTP technology intends to join together.
Links established through a PTP wireless bridge have higher data rates and faster throughput delivery than T-1/E1 lines and fiber, and also cost significantly less. PTP wireless bridges are effective solutions for a variety of networks, including sites that are particularly difficult to wire, warehouse environments and those that are being used for a temporary period of time.
Point to Multi-Point Wide Area Networks: Connecting Many Sites to a Location
Point-to-Multipoint (PMP) network technologies wirelessly connect a fixed location, also known as the point of presence, with several other selected locations. While concerns over issues, such as distance and data throughput rates, are frequently raised by businesses considering implementation of PMP networks, customers should rest assured. The professional technicians at ASCIO Wireless have the experience and skills to design PMP applications that overcome these issues, delivering highly effective data transmission solutions across multiple locations. Additionally, for businesses seeking to connect to locations of significant distance, PMP is preferable to wireless access point technologies as PMP networks actually provide greater coverage in terms of area.
Time Division Multiple Access: RF Time-Space and Rate Control
Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) is a channel access method that divides the signal into various time slots, allowing multiple users to access the radio frequency channel. PMP network systems are advantageous to PTP systems as they offer methods for dynamic data rate control, and are also able to make use of the TDMA method, easily controlling the space within the channel when many TDMA-compliant radios are using it simultaneously.
TDMA technologies fall into either the standard category or the proprietary category, or perhaps both. Standard TDMA technologies allow for the possibility of full interoperability between wireless broadcasting equipment regardless of manufacturer, while proprietary technologies are able to provide additional benefits beyond this, such as enhanced features and increased efficiency.
Licensed Wireless Links: Protect Your Organization from Outside Interference
In the United States, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) holds the power to regulate use of the radio frequency spectrum. The agency allocates what portions of the spectrum will be used for what purposes as well as which companies will be allowed access. In order to legally gain access to the radio band, a spectrum license must be granted from the agency. While applying or bidding for a license can be costly, licensed spectrums offer a great benefit: protection from the interference of others.
Companies that will benefit most from a spectrum license are those with critical wireless applications that require constant and reliable service. For example, a 4.9ghz RF spectrum is allocated for use by public safety applications, which includes video streaming, incident scene management tools and dispatch and vehicular operations.
Unlicensed Wireless Links: Create Public Usable Network
Unlike a licensed radio frequency spectrum, which requires a license for usage, an unlicensed spectrum provides a signal that is available for anyone that wants to use it. This unlicensed band, called the National Information Infrastructure band (U-NII), has established service for the public on fixed wireless networks in the 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz radio frequencies.
While the unlicensed spectrum is intended to promote public use in an unregulated environment, the spectrum is not completely without regulation. Users of the spectrum must adopt certified radio equipment, and must also adhere to technical requirements, such as power limits. Additionally, users should be aware that they do not have exclusivity, meaning they may encounter interference from other users within the radio frequency spectrum.
Cabling: Up to Date and Future Ready Cabling Solutions
Depending on preferences or specific business needs, cabling services for data, voice and video may be preferable to a completely wireless infrastructure. The technicians at ASCIO Wireless keep up-to-date on the latest techniques in regards to cabling to ensure that each customer is delivered with a quality installation and design that meets current and future technological needs.
