Wireless is a constantly evolving technology. Mobile networks have grown to include much more than wireless Internet connectivity, and require careful planning, engineering, and support. Considerations must be made for the expected traffic patterns and levels of performance, access, and quality of service. The environment must provide guaranteed levels of reliability and fault-tolerance, and support sufficient levels of security to prevent intrusions and detect attacks.
The need for integrated mobility solutions drives business communications innovation. Gone are the days when unique, specialized systems and applications were deployed to meet the needs of a small subset of end-users, or larger single-function systems were deployed across a campus or enterprise, lacking any real integration for efficient interaction. The complexity of today’s mobile infrastructures and devices demand an environment designed by skilled professionals. Due to Axispoint’s attention to detail and advanced wireless skill set, we received Cisco’s highest honor – Mobility Partner of the Year - besting 13,500 other partners in the United States and Canada.
Axispoint’s Mobility Design Consulting team have developed mature methodologies for design, implementation and support that exceed the requirements of the customer, including wireless voice communications, location and asset tracking, in-building cellular telephone service rebroadcasting and fixed mobile convergence solutions.
Axispoint Mobility Solutions Include:
The standards-based Wireless LAN (WLAN) provides the groundwork for supporting many of the Mobility Solutions delivered today. It is based on the IEEE 802.11 standards for wireless network communications.
Outdoor wireless communications requires a different set of criteria than indoor wireless systems. The wireless mesh infrastructure supports wireless interconnection between access points. We understand the challenges associated with these complex deployments.
Challenges often exist extending network connectivity between facilities. Wireless Wide Area Networks (Wireless WANs) can mitigate the high costs and lengthy implementation cycles associated with these connectivity challenges. Axispoint is experienced in the provisioning of these solutions, positioning both cost effective and highly reliable systems.
Wireless networks were originally designed to support limited mobile communications and simple mobile devices, but have evolved to include robust voice and video communications. Networks must be carefully and redundantly designed for the added complexity that accompanies voice traffic. Axispoint maintains extensive knowledge in Voice over WLAN deployments, successfully installing many environments to support Cisco, Ascom and SpectraLink handsets in addition to Vocera Communications badges.
AeroScout Visibility Solutions provide a unified platform that provides visibility into the control and management of mobile devices, assets, inventory and people across numerous industries. AeroScout solutions leverage standard Wi-Fi networks to present a single unified wireless architecture for visibility through real-time location services (RTLS). The Axispoint AeroScout practice is dedicated to leveraging our Cisco Unified Wireless Network expertise to ensure complete integration with all Cisco and AeroScout components and controls, providing successful solution deployment and management.
Axispoint’s Universal Wireless Network solutions deliver any mix of wireless services over a single, broadband infrastructure within a specific area, single building, or multi-building campus. Often called an in-building distributed antennas system or DAS, this environment supports rebroadcasting signals from wireless cellular telephone service and paging providers, public safety agency emergency transmissions, and Wi-Fi WLAN services. Axispoint leverages its wireless networking expertise to ensure the successful deployment of approved DAS solutions. We understand the pressure points and design criteria associated with these solutions and strive to obtain service provider input and acceptance from the earliest stages of engagement with a client and throughout the solution definition, design and deployment.
- Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) is the culmination of several disparate communications methodologies, resulting in the seamless transition from one communications medium to another to meet predefined performance, cost and efficiency goals. This is accomplished with dual-mode phones that support full operation on cellular and Wi-Fi networks, and back-end context aware routing platforms that seamlessly determine when a given device utilizes either wireless platform for communication. Axispoint is well positioned to support these emerging solutions under cooperative efforts between the Mobile Solutions, Converged Technology, Security Solutions, and Data Center Services groups to qualify the best core, back-end and mobile device requirements to design and deploy the best solutions to meet our clients’ needs.
As mobile data device deployment expands, the management, monitoring and control requirements for data storage, corporate access, and usage monitoring become central to their successful usage and operation. Mobile device management provides the platform to control devices that remain mobile from the first day of assignment until turned in or upgraded to a new device.
Axispoint Mobile Business Solutions - An Experienced Team
The Axispoint Mobile Business Solutions Team possesses the rare ability to combine business-savvy technology vision and implementation experience.
Our senior mobility thinkers hail from national and global manufacturers and integrators, many of whom were involved in the earliest days of Wi-Fi and helped lead its maturation. Our capabilities range from endpoints to infrastructure to custom applications, and as a result, we are regularly sought out by leading manufacturers to participate in advanced technology pilot programs that allow us to continually offer innovative solutions to our clients.
We count among our team one of the founding members of Cisco Systems’ Global Mobility Industry Steering Council, which provides senior guidance on market trends and input on solution offerings for the world’s largest manufacturer of wireless equipment.
