Complete Guide to FS Enterprise WiFi Solution
With the increasing demand for seamless WiFi access in enterprise offices, more and more companies feel the need to rebuild their enterprise networks to meet the rapidly growing demand for wireless connections, so they have to think about building their own enterprise wireless networks to support employees, customers and guests can freely access the Internet and work from anywhere, providing unlimited connectivity and coverage throughout the workplace.
What is Enterprise WiFi?
Enterprise WiFi is an enterprise-grade wireless network that provides seamless and secure connections throughout an organization’s physical location. Enterprise WiFi aims to provide the best possible connection and experience for businesses and customers. Enterprise wireless provides stronger security, scalable management options, and higher reliability than consumer-grade Wi-Fi.
What are the Benefits of Enterprise WiFi?
Enterprise WiFi enables businesses to:
Give employees more mobility by allowing them to access WiFi connections from anywhere within the footprint of the enterprise, rather than being trapped at a desk or workstation.
Reduce connectivity costs by providing fast Internet access without the need to install, maintain, and upgrade connections to each workspace.
Enable bring-your-own-device connectivity that allows anyone can access the Internet with a laptop, smartphone or tablet.
Facilitates Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity by making it easier for connected devices to communicate with the network.
Difficulties and Challenges Faced by Enterprise WiFi Networks
Enterprise WLAN services require high bandwidth and low latency
Enterprise WLAN has developed from wired network to fully wireless office network. Requirements for services carried on networks go beyond just Internet access.With a one-stop office platform that integrates instant messaging, email, video conferencing, and approval services, more and more tasks can be handled on mobile devices anytime, anywhere. Mobile and cloud-based networks can help businesses limit the impact of geographic distance and implement collaborative offices. Especially with the emergence of technologies such as 4K telepresence conferences, people from different locations can participate in the same project, and team members can hold telepresence conferences anytime and anywhere. 4K video conferencing is clear and smooth, and generally creates the same experience as face-to-face meetings. Therefore, the normalization of office wireless services has higher and higher requirements for high-bandwidth and low-latency experience.
The need to improve the efficiency of office wireless O&M
A stable network requires rapid response to deal with failures, and at the same time requires continuous and huge investment. However, traditional network management software cannot solve complex network optimization and fault location problems. For example, traditional network optimization requires professionals to be on-site, constantly repeating the entire process of testing, observation, analysis, and adjustment. The entire optimization cycle is long and inefficient. In addition, troubleshooting in wireless network O&M is another problem. On the one hand, the uncertainty of the wireless radio frequency environment makes it difficult to retain and reproduce the fault site; on the other hand, the device cannot save the history locally. record, which further increases the difficulty of troubleshooting.
Enterprise wireless security is questioned
Enterprise WiFi is more vulnerable to security breaches and requires that significant attention be paid to defining policies and implementing security measures. The introduction of IEEE 802.11 standards has raised a lot of security issues for enterprise wireless solutions. The latest industry security standards IEEE 802.11i/WPA2 address these issues, such as firewall protection devices used to verify the authenticity of received messages；intra-network filtering of routed and internetwork traffic is provided by wireless intrusion detection systems; wireless systems enable a more thorough detection and reporting of an extensive range of suspicious actions.
FS Enterprise Wireless Solution and Highlights
What kind of solution can meet the needs of enterprise WiFi network? Here we provide a full solution including the network topology, product features and parameters.
Tips for deploying this network topology:
1. Open office area: It is divided into high-density offices and ordinary offices. The high-density offices are mainly based on wireless services and ordinary offices are mainly focus on wired services.
2. High-density office area: WiFi access points are deployed in an equilateral triangle. It is recommended to use FS AP-N635 (Wi-Fi 6E) for ceiling installation with an interval of 10 to 12 meters. A single AP supports the access of 150 terminals
3. Ordinary office area: WiFi access points are deployed in an equilateral triangle. It is recommended to use FS AP-N515 ceiling installation with an interval of 15 to 20 meters. A single AP supports the access of 80 terminals.
4. For the hollow glass walls on both sides, it is recommended that the distance between the WiFi access point and the wall should be greater than 3m. Due to the lack of 2.4G available channels, some 2.4G radios need to be turned off to reduce co-channel interference. With Airware, you can complete channel optimization in high-density scenarios with one click.
What are the highlights of this solution?
Wi-Fi 6E greatly improves terminal performance and easily handles high-density office scenarios
Wi-Fi 6E adds a 6GHz frequency band and 1200MHz spectrum resources. Compared with the 2.4G and 5G frequency band resources in traditional Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6E adds 6G frequency band resources (5925MHz~7125MHz) and the total channel capacity has more than doubled. Effectively reduce channel congestion and increase concurrency.
Wi-Fi 6E makes full use of the 160MHz bandwidth channel, and the peak rate is doubled compared with Wi-Fi 6. It is an excellent solution to high-bandwidth applications, and high-definition video conferences are no longer stuck.
The latency of Wi-Fi 6E is significantly reduced, with an ultra-low latency of less than 3ms. The latency reduction in dense scenes is more than 8 times that of Wi-Fi 6, and the AR/VR application experience is greatly improved.
Improved flexible mobile office experience
In this solution, the network hardware is deployed locally in the enterprise, and the network management function is migrated to the cloud platform airware. Local independent networking devices can be connected to the cloud platform airware through the Internet to realize key management operations such as monitoring, troubleshooting, tuning, analysis, and network optimization. dimension action. The administrator can centrally manage the network through the Web page from any location.
