Wireless Network installation – Clitheroe Lancashire

June 17, 2011 posted by Lucas Communications

The brief was to install a wireless (Wi-Fi) network that would seamlessly cover a 3 storey Georgian property allowing multiple users’ access to the main server to stream multimedia including movies and music. After a free on-site wireless survey the following solution was proposed;

  • To install a 6 x NetGear  ProSafe dual-band access points supporting wireless N and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE)
  • 1 x NetGear ProSafe 16 AP Wireless Management System, this will manage all the access points from a central location.
  • 1 x NetGear FS108P – 8 port 10/100 switch with 4 ports PoE to power 3 of the access points from a lofted area.
  • 1 x NetGear GS724TP – 24 port rack-mount Gigabit Switch with PoE to power the other remaining APs.
