Wireless LAN Voice

Specialized Wireless Data Networks

When time is of the essence, and access to critical company information is key, a Wireless Data Network (WLAN) is an effective business tool to consider.  In essence, it is voice over IP (VoIP) over a WiFi network.

A Wireless Data Network can aid productivity because employees can navigate offices; stock and inventory areas and any other needed places in a facility while remaining connected to co-workers. What’s more, streamlined data and voice systems can impact the bottom line, creating significant labour savings.

At Acteon Networks, we’ve got you covered. Whether your needs are for two wireless access points (AP) or 200, we take the design, installation and maintenance of your Wireless Data Infrastructure seriously. What’s more, we work with the goal of provided safe and reliable WLAN systems, which integrate Wireless VOIP telephone access into the WLAN network.

Wireless VOIP allows employees an environment of freedom and flexibility to do their jobs without being tied with chords or wires to a phone or desktop.

WLAN Types

Enterprise WLAN

The use of multiple (Access Points) APs, wireless controllers, enhanced security, authentication, increased transmission throughput speed, remote management and wider coverage are the major components making up an enterprise WLAN.

Most equipment adheres to industry standards such as the 802.11a,b,g, or n.
Newer technology, mindful of greater business security concerns, is offered through 802.1x and 802.11i (WPA2). These types of APs are quickly becoming the latest industry standards.

Acteon focuses on providing comprehensive, thoughtful wireless LAN solutions to our clients.

A typical Enterprise WLAN installation includes:
Wireless Site Survey (RF Testing)
VOIP Supplement (If Required)
System Layout & Documentation
Cable Plant Design
Manufacturer Recommendations
Switch Installation
Wireless Controller Configuration Installation
Cable Installation\Certification
AP Programming\Installation
Antenna Placement
Certification Testing
Ongoing Support

Small Office\Home

At Acteon, we recognize businesses come in all shapes and sizes. To accommodate the needs of small or home office WLAN configurations, one or two wireless APs are typically enough to broadcast data signals around the office’s smaller footprint, such as a 100 to 200-foot call and response signal radius.

For smaller applications an installation would include:
Wireless Site Survey (RF Testing)
VOIP Supplement (If Required)
System Layout & Documentation
Cable Installation\Certification
AP Programming\Installation Certification Testing
Ongoing Support

Whether you are looking for a single AP or a large-scale Enterprise Installation solution, Acteon can help connect your work force in an environment previous generations could only dream about.

WLAN systems provide instantaneous data, available throughout your facility, any time of day or night, anywhere your staff are located- even when they are on the move- quickly, efficiently, and securely.

WLAN Standards

Like the natural landscape, industry standards for WLAN transmission and receipt vary according to the placement of signals and the physical obstacles these signals must overcome.

The 802.11a system operates on a highly regulated frequency where data rates can approach 54Mbps, offering support to more connections simultaneously. Because transmission distances are generally between 60 and 100 feet, signals may have trouble getting through solid barriers, like walls and flooring.

While the 802.11b system supports slower transmission speeds- those up to 11Mbps are ideal- this standard is more effective at overcoming physical barriers.

While published transmission ranges can be as much as 300 feet, independent reviewer tests are less optimistic, suggesting a more reliable distance range target of 70 to 150 feet. This device offers less simultaneous connections and can be impacted by interference from other devices when operating on the 2.4Ghs frequency.

802.11g is similar in function to 802.11a and operates at up to 54Mbps. Transmission distances are better, ranging from 65 to 120 feet, and it’s backwards compatible to 802.11b products. 802.11g will only run at 802.11b speeds, and because it operates on the 2.4Ghz frequency, it’s prone to interference from other devices.
