The WiFi Partners teams provide a range of services to construction and developer companies, and to completed building operators and Facilities Management providers.
Our teams are involved at an early stage, working with architects and planners to provide desk surveys from the floor plans to provide WiFi requirements together with CAT5 cabling points for the M&E contractor. The same survey work may include CCTV cabling and propose appropriate Verkada deployment options - utilising the same CAT5 as the WiFi.
During the build stage, WiFi Partners can provide Site Office WiFi through a fully-managed 4G/5G WiFi service, which provides a full office solution out-of-the-box and with preconfigured secure WiFi networks, for contractors, secure-corporate with VPN, IoT network and visitor WiFi - all secure and segmented from each other, preconfigured so staff devices immediately connect as they arrive.
The construction site requires good but temporary security, which can be deployed either cabled through CAT5 from an office, or through 4G routers at more remote positions across the site. We can also offer integrated Access Control and even COVID precaution enforcement measures to alert site teams when social distancing is not being adhered to.
WiFi Partners' installation teams deploy the WiFi services and hardware at the PC (practical completion) date stage, mounting the WiFi hardware and building the comms cabinet, and configuring the services to run on the network. There can include Staff / Operational WiFi, Residents & Visitors Communal WiFi and all the CAT5 cabled services. A successfully managed building's infrastructure requires segmented networks, securely separating each from the others and thus ensuring corporate service are unreachable for example from the visitor WiFi.
WiFi Partners Ltd are the ideal choice for creating and supporting the building's infrastructure - including the initial launch services and new connections or services required from time to time.
Key additional service areas are summarised below, but if you are in the construction, developer or building operator sectors, and looking for focused and experienced support - contact us to discuss your requirements and how we can help.
