Challenges in Wireless: (Part 1 of 5: Wireless Coverage)

Framing the question

Great Wi-Fi is everyone’s goal, but achieving it can be a big challenge:
How do we get the maximum wireless coverage with the least interference and the best throughput?

Stating the question that way, we can see there are three basic issues we always have to deal with, and we can look at them one by one. Let’s start with wireless coverage.

Radio range

In an earlier post, we explained that creating a predictive heat map is crucial to planning a wireless network. This heat map should be designed using industry standard software tools that take a number of factors into account.

Benefits of wireless technology and doing it the right way: (Part 4 of 4)

We’ve been considering how to design wireless networks properly. In our first post,, we examined the need for a clear mission for your network, in our second, how to analyze its requirements, and in our third, the design process.

In this post, we’ll look at installing the network and making sure it works properly.

We’ve been looking at wireless networks and how to design them properly. In our first post, we examined the need to define a clear mission, and in our second, how to analyze user behavior, measure the environment, and consider external threats, including interference from other networks and security threats.

In this post, we’ll overview the design process and related issues.

We are considering wireless networks and the factors involved in properly designing them. In our first post we looked at the wrong way to install Wi-Fi and the need to carefully determine your network’s mission.

In this post, we’ll overview the other steps you’ll need to take before you begin the network design.

The Challenge

You realize your Wi-Fi network is not what it needs to be. Your employees, students or guests all have wireless devices, but they don’t work as well as they should on your network. So you decide to make some improvements.
