Packet One - Wireless Computer Systems

Wireless Network Technology

Today's wireless technology brings flexibility and freedom to many types of businesses and environments.

Wireless technology is not just for your local Starbucks. Today's wireless technologies are implemented in Hotels, conference rooms, hospital rooms, classrooms, neighborhood Laundromats, and even in your backyard. The popularity of wireless LANs can be seen in environments of all sizes and types.

Wireless technologies is helping users with increased productivity, connecting to handheld devices and Laptop computers. It has made it affordable to supplement wired networks rather than replace these environments.Simply put, wireless is becoming the ultimate, must-have collaboration tool for every enterprise and Packet One Technology Group has what you need to execute your Wireless needs.

Wireless Network Services

Wireless Design Packet One Technology Wireless Design Services enables you to set up a wireless configuration that suits your company's needs.
  • Ad Hoc Network: An ad hoc (peer-to-peer) network is an independent local area network not connected to a wired infrastructure and where all stations are connected directly to one another (called a mesh topology). Configuring a WLAN in ad hoc mode is used to establish a network where wireless infrastructure does not exist or where services are not required, such as a trade show or collaboration by coworkers at a remote location.
  • Hotspots: A hotspot provides wireless LAN service, for free or for a fee, from a wide variety of public meeting areas, including coffee shops and airport lounges. There are currently thousands of hotspots worldwide and new access points are being added daily. To use hotspots, your notebook must be configured with Wi-Fi CERTIFIED* technology so you can connect with other products. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED notebooks can send and receive data anywhere within the range of a wireless LAN base station.
  • Point-to-Multipoint Bridge: When connecting three or more LANs that may be located on different floors in a building or across buildings, the point to multipoint wireless bridge is utilized. The multipoint wireless bridge configuration is similar to a point-to-point bridge in many ways.
  • Ethernet to Wireless Bridge: An Ethernet to wireless bridge connects a single device that has an Ethernet port but not an 802.11 network interface card (NIC), such as a network printer.
  • Point-to-Point Bridge: A bridge connects two networks. A point-to-point bridge would interconnect two buildings. Access points connect a network to multiple users, and bridges connect networks. For example, a wireless LAN bridge can interface with an Ethernet network directly to a particular access point. This may be necessary if you have several devices in a distant part of the facility that are interconnected using Ethernet.
  • Infrastructure Network: In an infrastructure network, WLAN clients connect to the corporate network through a wireless access point, and then operate like a wired client would. Most corporate wireless LANs operate in infrastructure mode and access the wired network for connections to printers and file servers.
Wireless Deployment
  • WLAN installations offer companies a way to improve their business operations and increase revenues. Providing wireless connectivity to a small segment of a larger environment can let companies measure the gains of a wireless pilot site and in turn, recognize the advantages of extending their wireless capability. Other times, a wireless network solution must be implemented across the entire organization, but regardless of whether you have a small company or a large enterprise; every deployment has a starting point.
  • Packet One Technology will step up your wireless solution- start to end. There is no single way to build a wireless LAN. Your particular needs and budget will drive how and when you integrate wireless networking technologies into your network infrastructure. Even so, building your own wireless LAN is very much a step-by-step process.
Wireless Security

Now the landscape of wireless security has changed giving IT managers the confidence to deploy WLANs.
  • Perhaps the only thing more important to your business than the data exchanged on your network is the ability to maintain the security of that data. Security fears have caused some network managers to avoid installing wireless LANs (WLANs), regardless of the numerous benefits that they provide.
  • Packet One Technology Security experts recommend that enterprises deploy several layers of defense across the network to mitigate threats. Additional security components might include firewalls, intrusion-detection systems (IDSs), and virtual LANs (VLANs). Network managers also reduce risk by wisely designing and installing their wireless networks, by implementing proven security measures, and by using products and software developed by experts in network security.
  • Just as in wired networks, no one can guarantee a completely secure networking environment that will prevent all penetrations at all times. Security protection is dynamic and ongoing-not static. Network managers and WLAN manufacturers need to keep one step ahead of the hackers. Packet One Technology will always take all the necessary precautions to ensure data and network protection.
Wireless Site Survey
  • The Wireless Network Site Survey is the precursor to a successful wireless network implementation. Familiarity with the unique needs of wireless networks translates into an accurate survey, and well-developed configuration and placement design. This up-front planning and documentation facilitates the smooth implementation of your network.
  • Expert Assistance Engineers experienced with wireless products and wireless network design help you to create a network that meets your specific needs. A Building Layout Review is done prior to the site survey. The engineer requests and reviews a building layout to identify the areas of your building that require wireless access.
  • In smaller environments where sometimes only one access point is required. A site survey is conducted in order to determine the best possible placement to receive the widest coverage .Relocating Access point and evaluating barriers is based on the need of the wireless devices being used and the required signal strength.
