WiFi Speed issues are faced at some point in time by all the organizations which have installed a wireless network. Below are some of the complaints usually received by the IT team.
- Slow WiFi connection
- WiFi speed is erratic
- WiFi signals drop randomly across the office
- WiFi interference issues due to signals from other radio and non-radio sources
- WiFi user authentication problem
- VoIP and Video not working properly on WiFi
- Signal dark spots in many areas of the office
The solution for above problems is WiFi Network Optimization!
WiFi Access points used in Wireless LAN (WLAN) are delicate devices that needs to be configured properly and positioned correctly in the office work areas for uninterrupted service. The same settings which worked when the WiFi network had low usage may not work when the WiFi network has become fully occupied and heavily used. Based on our experience, more than 75% of WLANs can be rectified through settings re-configurations alone. Only few WLANs may require actions like re-orientation of access points, radio interference management, access point additions, hardware integrity checks etc.
In many organizations, WLAN is configured only once during initial installation. When time passes, many things start affecting the WiFi speed: the number of users grow, people start using more number of devices on the WLAN under BYOD plans (Bring Your Own Devices), more number of applications start accessing the WLAN, interference from neighboring office networks increases, workplace architecture gets modified, access points gets displaced from original locations etc. While all these happens, the WiFi configurations usually remain the same as it was initially configured for the original workplace. This is the major cause of WiFi speed and other WLAN issues in many offices as the network cannot adjust itself to the rapidly changing environment.
