Our Wi-Fi and Wireless Services Options

Active Surveys

An active Wi-Fi site survey employs surveying tools linked to access points and is executed within your network. These tools can collect extensive data, encompassing traffic patterns, round-trip time (RTT), upload and download speeds, and overall throughput. It is advisable to perform regular active surveys across all properties, especially following any alterations to the building, furniture arrangement, or adjustments in the usage pattern of the Wi-Fi network.

Passive Surveys

A passive Wi-Fi site survey is a more precise and comprehensive approach compared to a predictive survey. It necessitates an on-site presence as it involves a physical examination of the building. During the survey, a walk-through of the property is conducted by the surveyor to ensure that all variables influencing the functionality of the Wi-Fi network are taken into consideration. This includes factors like the physical layout of the space and the placement of furniture.

Predictive Surveys

A predictive Wi-Fi site survey is conducted before entering a new space or implementing a wireless network, and it can even be completed before the construction of a building is finished. When planning the design of a wireless network, considerations for the building type and layout are crucial, and a predictive survey serves as a valuable tool in addressing these factors.

AP On A Stick Surveys

An AP on a Stick (APoS) survey involves temporarily positioning Access Points (APs) at deployment height using a tripod or alternative mounting options to verify the accuracy of your predictive design prior to a complete site deployment. Through APoS surveys, the radio frequency (RF) signal propagation characteristics of the environment are assessed, adding assurance that the proposed design will function according to plan.

Post Validation Surveys

This constitutes a crucial aspect of every Wireless LAN design, akin to testing Cat6 cable—it is performed post-installation. The evaluation includes meticulous examination of specifications such as near-side cross-talk, far-side cross-talk, pinouts, twist ratios, among others. Successfully meeting these criteria ensures the cable's capability to reliably achieve the intended gigabit Ethernet speeds, instilling confidence in its usage.

AP Installation & Support

Access Points provide network connectivity across diverse environments, including office spaces where employees can work from any location within the premises while maintaining a connection to the network. Moreover, Wireless Access Points (WAPs) enable wireless internet access in public areas such as coffee shops, airports, and train stations, delivering convenient connectivity for users on the move.

Data Cabling

Structured data cabling refers to the systematic and organised installation of a standardised cabling infrastructure within a building or facility to facilitate the seamless transmission of data, enquire today to find out more.

Wi-Fi Installations

Wi-Fi installations can encounter failure due to various reasons, including flawed initial designs, interference, suboptimal placement or coverage, and insufficient capacity. Unlike wired networks, which are comparatively straightforward, wireless setups pose a unique set of challenges. Given the diverse range of potential issues leading to installation failure, it is advisable for businesses to engage the services of an expert when deploying any wireless equipment.

We approached Fortitude MSP after our current IT Provider made multiple mistakes and it’s probably the best decision we as a business have made. From our first conversation, I could tell that they were different. We’ve been with them now for just under six months and the whole experience has been so much better. They have been absolutely fantastic.
