What we've been upto!!
It’s been a busy 4 months at Basilisk Data!! We were approached at the end of May this year to subcontract for a leading UK supermarket chain to work on a major wireless refresh project.
Within 48 hours of the initial meeting and project brief we were asked to perform RF surveys for approximately 300+ stores across the UK. This involved our dedicated engineers travelling the width and breadth of the country to meet the tight deadlines given for the upgrade of the wireless network.
Our engineers are highly skilled with both Ekahau Site Survey and AirMagnet products to give the best results possible to supply an accurate plan to improve coverage. Be it repositioning or planning for additional access points. This involved an in-depth audit of structured cabling, switch capacity and potential upgrades to provide extra power to POE devices.
Any potential issues upgrading the wireless devices on the existing network were flagged in an in depth audit so it could be rectified prior to the new devices being installed. All the information gathered by our engineers ensured a smooth transition of all the connected devices with minimal impact to staff and customers.
After the installation of the new access points we were tasked again at short notice to carry out additional survey works. This was to ensure the coverage on both 2.4ghz and 5ghz networks was broadcasting all areas in the design brief. Which it did!!
If we can assist you with any of your network requirements or projects give us a call.
