WIFI/Access Point Installation
How wireless access points
There are a variety of ways to establish or improve a WiFi signal in your business, and there are many different devices that approach wireless networking differently. Before you pick out a wireless access point, make sure you understand the competing technologies and what your connectivity options are.
Wireless access points, or WAPs, work in partnership with a wireless router – their primary function is to extend the reach and speed of an existing WiFi network. They connect to a wireless network through either a wired Ethernet connection or by joining it wirelessly. Wireless access points are particularly effective in situations where you need to increase WiFi coverage in multiple areas: they’re completely scalable, so increasing your WiFi network’s reach and speed is simply a matter of adding more WAPs.
Location, location, location
Wireless access points are only as effective as where they’re placed – and in general, the higher the better. Most wireless access points are designed to be set up in one of three locations:
Ceiling- and wall-mounted wireless access points are typically the size of a smoke detector, and ideal for covering entire rooms. Keep in mind that wherever you mount your wireless access point, it will need both power and, ideally, a wired internet connection.
Standalone wireless access points sit on any surface and look just like a typical wireless router. These offer the most flexibility, as you can place and move them as often as needed. Outdoor wireless access points are designed to withstand the elements and are ideal for situations where web access is necessary outside the walls of your business.
