Westgate House Nursing Home based in Northamptonshire had recently installed a CLB Acoustic Monitoring solution for their residents. Their existing legacy WiFi system was causing problems with connectivity in general and in particular to this new technology – a remedy needed to be found.
Adaptive IT were tasked with supplying and installing a new WiFi solution that would improve the quality of coverage and performance for all technologies across the site.
Adaptive IT's Solution
As part of an initial investigative visit WiFi analytics software was used to evaluate the current infrastructure and highlight where improvements needed to be made in key areas.
Utilising heat map software Adaptive were able to plan the deployment of the new wireless access points to maximise coverage and signal strength.
The installation phase was in a live Care Home environment so every effort then needed to be made that these works were undertaken with the minimum of noise and obstruction. Close planning in tandem with the Westgate staff ensured that this was achieved.
Post install performance and coverage have improved immeasurably meaning technologies are more reliable and work effectively. Westgate also have the option of secure separate WiFi networks for Staff, Residents and Guests.
The project was done in a manner that caused little or no disruption to our residents, which was no small achievement and required very flexible working by Adaptive.
I would not hesitate to use Adaptive IT Solutions for future projects.
