Super fast wireless

Redbeard IT always delivers fast and reliable WiFi solutions in and around Oxfordshire.

As a reputable and independent contractor, we are not tied to a specific manufacturer so you can trust we will only advise on the most cost-effective options based on your requirements. It is in our best practice to assess your current network WAP devices as these can often be expanded on to improve your configuration and achieve your desired results.

Environment

An important factor to consider when providing fast coverage is the environment. In older buildings, thick walls will impede WiFi coverage and running cables can be challenging. Ideally, you want your AP to be directly connected to your network rather than relying on wireless repeaters.

Equipment

Understanding of 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz WiFi, your equipment and best practice for its installation, AP device limitations, and all existing equipment compatibility need to be considered before a WiFi deployment can be successful.

Requirements

The demands on extra APs to improve your WiFi coverage at home will be lower than in an office or public place. You will need to consider how many users will be connecting at any one time: you do not want the bandwidth to be consumed by public WiFi as some needs to be reserved for private/staff use. Security also needs to be monitored more closely.

Industry language

Understanding the technical terms used to explain WiFi can be easy but fixing a poor wireless signal is intricate in practice and requires years of knowledge and experience.
