Quatred's Solutions Approach

  • Contact List

    • Contact information for all parties involved.

  • Warrant of Coverage

    • Site survey results are warranted for one (1) year from the survey conclusion date to provide 100% RF coverage in the regions documented within the report if Quatred installs and configures the RF Infrastructure defined in the report.

  • Site Description

    • Includes site location address, floor plans, coverage areas, the type of construction, the number of floors, the number of buildings, etc.

  • Method of Testing

    • Provides the customer with a description of what tools (both hardware as well as software versions) were used to do the testing, the data rate desired, and how the survey was preformed.

  • Power Requirements

    • Defines the power requirements for all wireless infrastructure equipment.

  • General Network Description

    • General description of the pre-existing wired network and infrastucture.  Definition of existing MDF/IDFs, types of connections (Token Ring, Ethernet, ATM, fiber, etc.), the types of connecting devices (Nortel Baystack 350 switch, Linksys 2400 hub, Cisco 2600 router, etc.)

  • Preliminary Equipment List

    • Details the components recommended for a wireless deployment.

  • Area-by-area Analysis

    • Defines Access Point and/or Access Port (AP) locations, type of antennas, data rates, transmit power, and mounting instructions.  Photographs of the exact locations where the APs will be mounted and the identification of which MDF/IDF they will be associated with are provided.


 

1. Site Evaluation & Survey

 

A Quatred wireless local area network (WLAN) site survey is a physical survey of the site by experienced wireless system engineers to define requirements for a wireless network.

 

The Site Survey Report identifies the RF components required and their respective locations within the facility and all of the required specifications to facilitate the installation and implementation of the RF infrastructure to achieve the desired wireless coverage.  The report contains the following information:


 

2. Install & Configure Equipment

  • Radio Frequency (RF)

    • Configuration of Mobile Units (Pistol Grips, Palms, Wearables, Vehicle Mounts, Stationary Mounts, etc.)

      Bar Code label printers (Desktop, Portables, Automatic Print Applicators)

  • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

    • Configuration of readers

    • Integration to host

    • RFID tag encoding printers (Desktop, Automatic Print Applicators

3. System Design & Build

  • Functional / Technical Design

  • Design Review / Revisions

  • Build System utilizing QUICK® (Quatred Universal Interface Control Kit)

  • Design Bar Code Labels and/or RFID Tags

  • Bar Code existing Source Documents

  • Technical Test

  • Draft user test cases​

 

4. Hardware & Software Training

  • Technical Training (Hardware & Software)

  • Equipment Training (Hardware & Software)

  • Software Training (Functionality Walkthrough)

5. System Pilot Test & Tune

  • Users test the system in a pilot environment

  • Systems issues are logged and recorded

  • System is fine-tuned based on "hands-on" understanding

  • System is phased in or run in parallel

6. Implement & Go Live

  • Deploy System (may be phased or area specific)

  • Provide assistance and guidance for users during go live

  • Manage implementation and undertaking
