Deploying Wi-Fi in the Hospitality Industry including Hotels, Condos and Apartments
Deploying Wi-Fi in an environment where you’ll have multiple users in possibly a large multi floored building needs to meet certain criteria that a normal home Wi-Fi solution cannot possibly provide without being compromised in some way or another.
Some crucial points for the deployment must reach are;
- Range and Signal Strength:Normal Wi-Fi solutions are good for just 2 to 3 floored houses with a few users on them, but when you have a hotel or apartment sized building you’re going to need a solution, where the entire building is covered with no dead spots. In an environment like this you’ll have multiple users with potentially multiple devices connected to the Wi-Fi, which can only lead to heavy traffic causing the Wi-Fi network to slowdown a bit on the motorway during rush hour.
- Security and Malicious Behavior:With so many users connected to your network then a few bad users can attempt to hack your account. In order to resolve these issues, measures must be in place to prevent such attacks
