It is important to understand that a wireless network isn’t wireless at all. There are cables, access points, and various other pieces of hardware that need to be installed when implementing a wireless network. With any installation, there are specific tools that are required to get the job done. While a WiFi project might require some specific tools depending on the building’s materials, size, and network needs, we have compiled a list of the basic tools and materials needed for a WiFi installation kit.
Upgrading the WiFi in a large space is a big project. Upgrading the WiFi on a university’s campus is a huge project. With numerous academic and residential buildings, stadiums, and even outdoor areas, it is imperative to plan the project accordingly so as to not disrupt business, learning, and living conditions. A complete WiFi upgrade is not a simple task. It takes planning and patience. There are three main phases of a campus WiFi upgrade: design, installation, and testing.
Most organizations have a budget process that must be followed to allocate funds. In some cases, these project funds are allocated on a yearly cycle. Therefore, when planning a WiFi project, it is important to understand all aspects and stages of the project in order to determine an appropriate budget. While every project will ultimately have different requirements, all WiFi projects have the same four cost elements - labor, materials, other direct costs (ODC), and travel, which can be broken down as follows:
