Consistently making the best choice takes specialized knowledge and experience. It’s not enough to know which products can solve a customer’s problems. It’s more important to know how to integrate them correctly with operations and personnel. New solutions depend upon multiple independent systems. Whether that means specialized electrical and data connectivity, regular maintenance configurations, or operational training; Renaissance has what it takes to help you make the best choice.
- Enabling all or part of the existing infrastructure to meet new system requirements requires a comprehensive analysis of when it makes sense to share a network, or when it makes sense to build a stand alone network. Renaissance can bridge the gap between the systems’ requirements and the network’s capabilities.
When engineered and installed correctly demanding applications like video surveillance, mobile wireless systems, and all types of audio devices can work together without slowing each other down. All these systems place different demands upon your network.
Video surveillance systems demand specialized network storage, and intercoms and communications systems demand specific network latency requirements. It’s important to have a partner who can balance the functional system requirements with the networking requirements. Not doing so could potentially lead to configuration mistakes, poor network performance, or system outages.
- Wireless networks provide a faster more cost effective installation. In many situations wireless access allows networks to be installed and transmitting data within hours compared of weeks with wired networks. Wireless networks allow connectivity to be extended or contracted easily. If the network needs to be relocated it is much easier to move wireless devices than to uproot an entire wired network. For city wide or large campus applications it is cost effective to install wireless networks instead of running structured cabling between and through every building. Wireless improves productivity by allowing authorized users instant access without requiring a physical interface. Wireless mesh networks and WiFi hotspots can also provide entire fleets of municipal vehicles and employees with mobile access to network resources.
Adding wireless connectivity is more challenging than installing a few wireless routers at the edge of your network and configuring a WEP. Wireless mesh networks require multiple nodes and wireless backhauls, and each device using the network must be configured securely.
