Quest wireless network design and implementation

Building a successful, secure wireless network requires careful planning, implementation, and on-going support. How many access points are needed? What must be done to ensure your network is not being hacked? Trust Quest for the answers. From design and assessment to security and compliance, we’ve got wireless wired.

What are your wireless network setup requirements?

If you are just now considering implementing a wireless network, there is no better place to start than with a complete wireless assessment. A certified wireless engineer will meet with you to determine unique requirements for specific signal coverage, roaming, cabling, and aesthetics, and to discuss security recommendations. We then perform a spectrum analysis to determine the number and placement of access points to provide optimum coverage. Our wireless network site assessment report details any necessary changes to your existing network, equipment placement, power considerations, and wiring requirements. And finally, we provide a detailed report identifying recommended access point positions.

Already have a wireless network?

Are there holes in your existing wireless network? Quest can help you find and fix them. And, if you are experiencing network downtime, slow connection speeds, or coverage drop-offs, we will supply you the information necessary to correct those problems. Whether the issue is the number or location of access points, or your network infrastructure, a Quest site assessment provides the answers necessary to enhance and secure your wireless network.

A compliant and secure wireless network

A wireless network is an open target for hackers and unauthorized access. After meeting with a Quest wireless engineer, many organizations are surprised to learn that most unauthorized access comes from their own employees. Laptops are inexpensive and most newer ones come equipped with wireless cards. What harm could there be in tapping into the network and checking a few sports scores? Or checking personal email? The reality is, we’re living in a new, interconnected world. What your employees do on your network can quickly become actionable. And with regulations like Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, and the GLBA, you may be at greater risk than you think.

We can help. As a Managed Service or as an in-house solution, Quest can provide the wireless services you require, including:

  • - Intrusion prevention and detection
  • - Rogue detection
  • - Wireless blocking
  • - Threat location/identification
  • - Pre-configured regulatory compliance policies
  • - Hand-held/portables detection
  • - Automated alerts/response

Comprehensive wireless design and service

Knowing your wireless network is protected means you can get more work done. Once the pitfalls and risks of managing your network are no longer an issue, your IT department will be able to concentrate on strategic initiatives, and collaboration and teamwork will flourish. So, cover your access points and take the first step toward a functional, secure wireless network.
