Wireless network business review
Lowry can provide the wireless technology you need to take advantage of many valuable applications. A Lowry Business Review begins by investigating your current processes and applications and applying wireless expertise to increase your productivity, eliminate waste, keep customers happy, and increase your bottom line.
Our wireless business review examines:
- Geographical usage areas
- Mobility requirements
- Throughput needs
- Security enforcements
Plan: wireless network services—design
Through a comprehensive and repeatable process we create a roadmap toward the successful implementation and future growth of the network as a whole. Beyond typical wireless hardware placement and configuration items our process also includes future maintenance concerns, network and closet capacity, bandwidth requirements, application requirements, existing infrastructure, and future growth and expansion plans.
Our wireless network design services include: wireless network site survey and design, cabling infrastructure site survey and design, conduit/cable tray site survey and design, and closet/cabinet site survey and design.
Implement: Wireless network implementation, installation, validation, and security
Wireless network implementation and commissioning
Lowry defines wireless implementation as the commissioning of the wireless network. We will configure any wireless controllers and update their firmware to the latest code, create any redundancies between multiple controllers, program all access points and associate them to the controller, if applicable, and validate the system’s operation.
This service is available regardless of who designed your wireless system. However, having Lowry design and implement your system will ensure a smooth operational transition for the system.
Wireless installation services
From physical and backbone installations to conduit/cable tray and closet or cabinet implementations, you can trust Lowry’s team of experts to successfully install your wireless network for optimal performance.
We’ll install the access points, external antennas, power supplies, controllers, and patch cables for the wireless network system. Lowry will supply all of the ladders, tools, and lift vehicles for the operation as well as observe all facility work and safety practices.
Wireless network validation
Lowry’s Wireless Network Validation is a service that combines the best of wireless design with an eye toward blending new practices with your existing system. During a wireless validation, Lowry will investigate the current state of your network in such areas as coverage, frequency band usage, density coordination, and interference from the outside that may affect how well your network can perform.
Through our process we will gather pertinent information and map out the next steps for improving your wireless network.
Wireless network security
The increased reach and reliance of wireless networks has put a strain on security for many companies. Additional applications and increased usage will continue to test your network’s ability to keep your data, and users, safe from those forces that could compromise your valuable assets.
Lowry’s proactive approach to keeping your wireless network secure includes wireless security review, wireless security design and wireless security implementation.
Wireless mobile device management
Many organizations are seeing a real benefit in allowing their employees to utilize their mobile devices because it means more productivity and less cost of having to supply their employee with the devices. The challenge, is ensuring the security of these devices on the network.
Lowry follows a complete process for mobile device management (MDM) which includes assessment, plan development, and implementation. Applying our expertise in mobile computing and wireless networks, Lowry can help your organization create a roadmap for secure and efficient mobile device management.
