ENA AdvantEdge includes assessment, design, implementation, project management, and validation services.

Designing and deploying a building-wide or campus-wide Wi-Fi network is a challenging and time-consuming project for today’s 21st century technology departments. ENA AdvantEdge provides your organization with a team of experienced engineers and project managers who will create and implement a scalable wireless networking solution that meets your organization’s present and future coverage and capacity needs.

As an experienced provider of Wi-Fi services to K–12 schools, higher education institutions, and libraries, we understand your unique challenges as well as your structural and geographic limitations. Our solutions are tailored to meet your needs, providing you with ubiquitous Wi-Fi access while eliminating unnecessary build-outs and/or equipment costs.

What’s included with ENA AdvantEdge?

 

Assessment

ENA engineers perform a comprehensive in-person site survey to assess your network coverage and capacity requirements. Because every building and campus is different, our engineers will discuss with you your technology visions and mobility plans, conduct a facility walkthrough assessment to determine your equipment needs, and perform a radio frequency (RF) site survey of the existing WLAN. They then compile a high-level list of recommendations from this data and propose the best solution for you.

Design

From the assessment, a Wi-Fi design is created—which includes a detailed blueprint of the proposed WLAN—to meet identified requirements for coverage, capacity, user density, and mobility needs. The design includes specifications for access point (AP) quantity, placement, channel plan, and power plan.

Equipment

ENA offers state-of-the-art enterprise-grade equipment to support a robust Wi-Fi design and implementation.

Project Management

Dedicated project management is included with every ENA AdvantEdge implementation to ensure a seamless and stress-free Wi-Fi deployment.

Implementation

Based on the design, an ENA project manager coordinates the network implementation, which includes installation of new fiber and/or low-voltage copper cabling; AP labeling, mounting, and patching; and rack installation of new switches.

Activation and Validation

Once implementation is complete, an ENA project manager organizes the activation and validation, wherein an ENA engineer visits your site to configure and activate your WLAN, ensures RF coverage matches the Wi-Fi design, and performs final validation testing to ensure successful authentication, roaming, and performance of the wireless network.

Training

Upon activation and validation, an ENA trainer provides self-management training on the newly-installed WLAN, including system monitoring, configuration, and reporting. Training is offered for various skill levels, including network engineer, facility engineer, and business administrator.

The rest is in your hands!

After your custom-tailored Wi-Fi solution has been deployed, you are in control of your network’s management and monitoring. ENA AdvantEdge does not include ENA monitoring, maintenance, or reporting.

Note: ENA co-management options are available. Please inquire with your ENA account representative.
