The TPI Difference
We begin with initial consultation to our clients to determine which technologies offer the best overall fit into your enterprise, and then advise on your options for specific brands of equipment, deployment plans and system management techniques. We are very experienced in configuration and commissioning of solutions from Cisco and Zebra Technologies (formally Motorola) — the two market leaders.
IT professionals rely on our expertise when selecting wireless LAN technologies. The myriad of available options can create confusion. For example, traditional RF access points (referred to as “autonomous”) may be the best option for some sites while a controller/switch-based infrastructure might offer significant advantages for the enterprise. Wireless security capabilities, including encryption, authentication, and wireless intrusion protection, are also key elements of determining which infrastructure is a best fit.
Bottom Line: TPI has the experience and expertise to provide the most flexible and cost-efficient wireless network design for your business.
