Wireless LAN Installation

Dimension Network Systems have installed hundreds of wireless networks across all economic sectors, Manufacturing, Education, Finance, Medical and each sector has specific requirements.

A successful installation will be one that integrates seamlessly with the wired network were security and authentication requirements are mirrored on the wireless network.

Before installing a wireless network there are a few important considerations. Simply providing wireless coverage throughout your facility may not be sufficient.

Co-Channel and Adjacent channel interference should be mitigated. The deployment should ensure a proper channel planning such that the APs in the vicinity of each other are operating on non-interfering channels. A

In today’s wireless networks, capacity is of more importance. How many users per area, what primary applications will be used, where are the High Density areas in your facility, 802.11n or 802.11ac ? – the answers to these questions will provide you with a fit for purpose wireless network

Wireless Security

Wireless security is an essential feature of any reliable WLAN as wireless technology is exploding in popularity; it also presents a new challenge to IT security, especially as it relates to maintaining confidentiality and integrity of data. First, the air is a shared medium and lacks the physical control of its wired counterpart. Any wireless device can “see” all the traffic of other wireless devices in the network.

Sensitive information that is transmitted between wireless devices can be intercepted and disclosed if not protected by strong encryption.

Second, businesses are steadily integrating wireless technology into their wired network, for example BYOD, tablet devices and connecting through the wireless network can often bypass the traditional wired-side security.

Rogue or insecure Access Points can compromise network security, making them popular targets for hackers. Even if an organization has no sanctioned Wireless LANs, Wi-Fi enabled laptops and PDAs can open a backdoor into the corporate network and render existing security measures useless.
