Wi-Fi is essential today and a must in any working environment. Businesses especially are rapidly accepting this, adopting both company and guest Wi-Fi networks. Without easy data access for the use of everyday technology, company risk being left behind. TVNET recognise this offering a full end to end Wi-Fi proposition for offices, hotels, restaurants, warehouses, retail premises, hospitals, colleges and schools.
Wi-Fi uses radio waves to send data from your wireless enables devices including laptops, PCs, tablets and mobile phones across a network. When you send an email or browse the internet, the wireless adapter in your device translates your data into radio waves and sent to a wireless access point or router. The router which is in turn connected to the internet encodes your data and sends it out via the internet. Any data such as email replies or web pages come back via the internet and pass through a wireless router and are decoded into radio signals which are then picked up by your device.
TVNET will visit your site, qualify the Wi-Fi connectivity requirement, access the structure of a building and identify any potential challenges with the rollout of a Wi-Fi solution. Our Wi-Fi survey is designed to ensure you have sufficient Wi-Fi coverage so that everyone stays connected wherever they are in your office. We will also make sure that you have sufficient network capacity to run the applications that your business relies on including video and voice communications.
