Wi-Fi Buyers Guide - Supplier Checklist

How Many Wi-Fi Networks are Fit for Purpose?
As independent consultants, we can see that today's network engineers lack the essential skills needed to Plan, Design, Survey, Implement, Secure and Support enterprise-grade Wi-Fi networks.
The consequences - which we see every week - are that many Wi-Fi networks being installed today are poorly designed and engineered.
We have seen countless examples of poor practice in terms of wireless network planning, design, survey, installation, configuration, support and troubleshooting.
