GECODA Networks can create a transparent environment across wired and wireless networks with the performance required for business-critical applications. 802.11n wireless combines the mobility of wireless with the performance of wired networks, offering up to nine times the performance of 802.11a/g networks. Providing true enterprise-class RF, optimized access point radio and antennas, you can improve performance regardless of where a device is located.
Context-aware intelligence, such as indoor location information gathered from the Wi-Fi network, can enable organizations to extend mobile services to customers for a satisfying wireless experience.
GECODA Networks supports multi-vendor (Cloud-based) WLAN and delivers a wide range of WLAN services to meet your business needs.
A WLAN device used to connect LAN by forwarding packets across connections at the Media Access Control (MAC) sublayer of the Data-link (Layer 2) of the OSI model.
Adopting Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, allowing employees to connect to the corporate network and conduct business with their own personal mobile devices.
Wireless indoor or enterprise wireless networks (also known as private indoor networks) are the means achieving data, voice, video and other IP uses throughout the business place, residence, retail or public indoor space.
Wireless outdoor is intended for use outside structures and used to extend wireless local area networks (WLANs) over great distances; for example, many modern airports and military bases use outdoor WAPs in order to provide wireless coverage to the entire area.
GECODA Networks delivers three main types of WLAN surveys:
- Active: During an active survey, the wireless adapter is associated with one or several access points to measure round-trip time, throughput rates, packet loss, and retransmissions. Active surveys are used to troubleshoot wifi networks or to verify performance post-deployment.
- Passive: During a passive survey, a site survey application passively listens to WLAN traffic to detect active access points, measure signal strength and noise level. However, the wireless adapter being used for a survey is not associated to any WLANs. For system design purposes, one or more temporary access points are deployed to identify and qualify access point locations. This used to be the most common method of pre-deployment wifi survey.
- Predictive: During a predictive survey, a model of the RF environment is created using simulation tools. It is essential that the correct information on the environment is entered into the RF modeling tool, including location and RF characteristics of barriers like walls or large objects. Therefore, temporary access points or signal sources can be used to gather information on propagation in the environment. Virtual access points are then placed on the floor plan to estimate expected coverage and adjust their number and location. The value of a predictive survey as a design tool versus a passive survey done with only a few access point is that modeled interference can be taken into account in the design.Additionally, some survey application allow the user to collect RF spectrum data using portable hardware spectrum analyzers, which is beneficial in case of high RF interference from non-802.11 sources, such as microwave ovens or cordless phones.
