Storcom offers a fast, secure, and reliable Wi-Fi-as-a-Service (WiFiaaS) solution
Wi-Fi LANs allow companies to be more productive by enabling employees to be as mobile as possible. However, having many users connecting to Wi-Fi infrastructure from a variety of different device types makes it difficult to plan and troubleshooting Wi-Fi infrastructure.
Enterprise-grade wireless network largely depends on a number of infrastructure components in order to optimize performance and create a positive user experience. Storcom uses the agility of the cloud in order to take a mobile-first approach to our WiFiaaS. We build a comprehensive solution to maximize our clients’ uptime, speed, and accessibility so companies and customers can connect devices across locations.
There are many different factors that can impact the performance of a Wi-Fi network. This includes switches, firewalls, access controls, and routers. Storcom understands that a reliable and secure wireless network comes from navigating and streamlining your company’s architecture in order to fulfill the unique needs of your business. Storcom’s highly-trained engineers work with your IT team to establish a centralized WiFiaaS platform.

It is important to check your Wi-Fi network frequently to see if any unapproved access points have been added to the system. Companies should keep a list of approved access points in a managed access point list, and should check if they are connected to the secure network. If necessary, Storcom can help add wireless intrusion prevention systems from one of our vendors like Cisco or Aruba Networks in order to monitor the network’s radio spectrum and root out unauthorized/rogue access points.
In this day and age, network security should be of the utmost importance. This is why rogue access points should be identified and dealt with accordingly. A rogue access point is a wireless access point that has been added and installed on a secure network without the network administrator’s explicit consent. A well-meaning employee very well could have added an access point to your network thinking that they were being helpful; however, there are many bad actors out there who may wish to cause your company harm with use of a rogue access point so it is important to try to find its source.
A rogue access point very well could be installed by an employee who has good intentions, but there is also a chance that one has been added by a malicious attacker. Rogue access points can create a vulnerability in an organization’s network which leave companies open to DoS and data theft attacks. If a rogue access point was installed by a malicious attacker, then they are able to access your network remotely. Gone are the days where companies worry about intruders entering the premises to steal critical data. In today’s world, this means that an intruder could be running vulnerability scanners while sitting in your lobby, parking lot, a neighboring building, or by using a high gain antenna from miles away. Also, rogue access points can give your neighboring businesses or residents access to your network, which opens up major security concerns.
In this day and age, network security is of the utmost importance. This is why rogue access points should be found and dealt with accordingly. A “rogue access point” is a wireless access point that has been added and installed on a secure network without the network administrator’s explicit permission.
“Signal strength,” also referred to as “coverage,” is the most basic requirement for a wireless network. To put it simply, signal strength is defined in dBM (decibel milliwatts) to determine the strength of a wireless network. As a general guideline, low signal strength means unreliable connections and low data throughput. While it is confusing, wireless signal strength is denoted in negative values, meaning that the signal is stronger with lower numbers.
A post-installation Wi-Fi survey is performed after a wireless network has been configured and set up. This will confirm that all wireless networking components are functioning properly and that your organization’s coverage and capacity needs are being met with your new wireless network. This extra step is where Storcom feels we set ourselves apart from our competitors. We give our clients the extra reassurance that their new wireless network has been properly designed and configured for both current and future usage.
The most effective way to diagnose troublesome wireless networks is to conduct a health check wireless survey. Storcom can find RF interference, hidden nodes, network drop-offs, rogue access points, and more using our state-of-the-art wireless networking technology. We can determine where your pain points are located, and we can determine how to improve your wireless network in order to achieve the greatest performance gains in order to optimize the health of your Wi-Fi network.
Storcom assesses the layout of a potential new wireless network. This includes the location of each access point, RF interference, and noise levels. With our state-of-the-art technology, we can optimize your company’s wireless deployment to select the proper radio channels, antennas, and location of access points for optimal transmit power levels. We can also take this information in order to deploy your new wireless network in order to maximize the Wi-Fi experience for your employees and customers.
The initial wireless network survey is a critical first step in designing, troubleshooting, and provisioning a wireless network. If your wireless network is improperly configured, then you risk a network that is unable to handle future demands of mobile devices, smart phones, tablets and the release of innovative new products. It is imperative that a wireless survey is conducted to address your coverage today with a foresight to the future. At Storcom, we use the latest industry tools to map RF coverage and capacity and we provide you with detailed and comprehensive documentation to optimize your Wi-Fi coverage.
Storcom partners with best-in-class and emerging technology providers to enable our clients to stay on the cutting edge of information technology.
