Seamless wireless connectivity is critical for organizations. To ensure that a wireless network is configured and deployed properly requires checking the performance of the WLAN and confirming that no area is left without coverage. A wireless assessment is crucial to analyzing, planning, and designing a successful wireless network installation. An assessment will give you a better understanding of workloads and costs, allowing you to scale correctly and prevent poor performance that can interrupt the business. Each Juniper assessment includes a diagnosis of existing issues in the current network and a recommendation report.
The Discovery Workshop is the first step of the Juniper Mist™ Wi-Fi Assessment Service. Prior to the workshop, the Juniper consultant will send the customer a wireless assessment questionnaire to complete. Those answers, in combination with the customer’s floor plans and other relevant information, will be used to gather additional information about the wireless network during the Discovery Workshop. As a second step, the Juniper consultant will complete a Configuration Review. This step requires mapping the data gathered in the Discovery Workshop and examining the configurations and network topology to determine whether they meet best practices. A site visit is also required to verify the signal strengths and placement of wireless access points (WAPs). During the site visit, the Juniper consultant will access areas where the WAPs are mounted and verify the method, alignment, and orientation. The consultant will also require access to the switches during the site visit to verify configuration and connectivity. After the analysis, the Juniper consultant will prepare a Findings Report and send a draft to the customer to verify the contents. Once the report findings have been approved, Juniper will hold a Report Presentation Workshop to review and discuss the findings and recommendations.
