Professional Wi-Fi in education

Wi-Fi is extremely important today to be able to give lessons smoothly. Nowadays, in an educational environment, all users are simultaneously connected to the wireless network, which requires a very high capacity. We can then support the internal people through training to remove the stress.

Expertise in Wi-Fi for education

At AHFIBIT we have the right expertise, experience and tools to provide your school with a secure and professional wireless network. In education, there are different users such as administration, teachers and students whose data you want to separate. Segmentation and separation are very important here.

Wi-Fi is extremely important today to be able to give lessons smoothly. Nowadays, in an educational environment, all users are simultaneously connected to the wireless network, which requires a very high capacity. By means of a site survey either on floor plans or on location, we can ensure that the wireless signal is strong enough on the users’ devices.

With our comprehensive approach we ensure that your Wi-Fi network works reliably and efficiently, allowing smooth operations in your school.

Wi-Fi Site Survey

A site survey is a thorough analysis of the wireless network. It identifies the disruptive factors or determines the most optimal position for a new access point.

Wi-Fi Site Survey includes

  • Professional intake to discuss requirement
  • Security issues identified on your network
  • Wi-Fi heatmap & channel plan
  • Clear defined site survey report
  • Meeting to discuss results

The benefits of a strong Wi-Fi network in your school

Thanks to a fast and stable Wi-Fi connection, students can perform online actions faster, resulting in increased productivity during lessons. A reliable Wi-Fi connection plays a crucial role in this. We want to use segmentation to separate student and staff data in order to maintain the security and integrity of the network.

When designing, we take the capacity of the wireless network into account and when all students use the wireless network at the same time, this will cause a peak load. Provided a good design and professional configuration, interruptions will be prevented.

Teachers experience less frustration when they can rely on a stable and fast Wi-Fi connection. This contributes to user satisfaction. By investing in an optimized Wi-Fi network that is tailored to the specific needs of the school, unnecessary expenses can be avoided. This results in a more efficient use of resources.

Frequently asked questions about Wi-Fi

A common problem is that the wireless network is slow. We recommend placing the access points where the users are, the more the access points are in “sight” of the users, the better the network will function. To put it in a technical term, we recommend a signal strength of -67dBm or better.

Wi-Fi technology is evolving very quickly. From the moment a new Wi-Fi standard is available, the next standard is being discussed. Should you therefore wait for the new standard? From a software point of view, yes, as the new standard will last even longer and will receive support for a longer time. On the other hand, you have to ask the question, do you actually need the new functions that this Wi-Fi standard provides or can you get started with the existing Wi-Fi standard.

If too many users are connected to the same access point, the connection can be unstable and disconnect at random times. To clearly map this out, we can conduct a site survey to calculate sufficient capacity.

AHFIBIT works from a vendor independent perspective, every Wi-Fi vendor has its strengths and capabilities. The choice of vendor can be determined by the needs of your wireless network. Each vendor has access points in their portfolio for high-density environments, while there are also those for low density. AHFIBIT can guide you in the right choice of the type of access point for your environment. Perhaps even more important is the configuration of the wireless network, it must be set to the needs of the network. As a WiFi expert, we can certainly provide you with the right advice!
