Keeping pace with demand for indoor wireless coverage amid unprecedented mobile data traffic growth has become a business and IT priority. Many choices exist when planning for optimal in-building wireless connectivity-and the lines continue to blur with aggregated wireless standards, integrating systems over IP networking and commonalities of cabling infrastructure.
Many enterprise and retail IT organizations struggle to meet end user demands for ubiquitous wireless coverage at blazing fast speeds. The underlying issue for most IT organizations is a lack of expertise with today’s indoor cellular networks. Formulating a wireless strategy beyond Wi-Fi requires mobile network expertise, a detailed understanding of deployment costs and an ability to provide ongoing systems maintenance. An experienced professional services partner can consult with IT organizations and business stakeholders during these critical decisions and lead a technology assessment to address:
Delaying actions to address capacity, density and quality of service will result in continued deterioration of performance across your business as end-users become increasingly more dependent on the wireless network.
The stark reality:
Having the ability to bring technologies and infrastructure together is the key to driving simplicity and scalability, but radio frequency (RF) propagation differs between Wi-Fi, cellular, public safety and low-powered networks. It starts with a partner, like NCR, with the expertise and tools to properly evaluate your in-building environment, deploy OEM-certified systems and provide support services to keep your mobile users connected.
