Free to move around your business
with total connectivity.
Whether you are in an office, hotel, trade fair or similar, you need mobility and connectivity to your laptop, tablet or smart phone without cables. That’s the importance of Wi-Fi!
Not many years ago, most branch sites and companies in the SME segment were only using a cabled network. Access points were only installed for very specific places. For example meeting rooms.
However the large increase in laptops, tablets and smart phones, has drastically increased, as well as the concept of BYODs. Hence the installation of access point networks has also increased exceptionally and Wi-Fi has extended to many other concepts, such as point of sales, client information points, hotel rooms, etc.
Today, Wi-Fi is a vital part of any company’s communication network and IT infrastructure. Not just limited to internet access, but to virtually all connections that before were via cable and perhaps even more.
Teldat has developed a wide series of indoor access points for offices, hotels and other indoor sites. From our 802.11n device, Teldat AP221n, to our 802.11ac units Teldat AP222ac and Teldat AP222ac-ext. All these Wi-Fi units have a captive portal available, Teldat HotSpot by WifiGo.
Whether to increase the level of employee freedom to move around the internal company building with total connectivity or to set up Hot Spots for the concept of Hospitality access points. Whatever the wide spectrum of indoor Wi-Fi scenarios, Teldat indoor access point devices will always cover the strict requirements that Wireless LAN scenarios demand.
These access points vary in that the Teldat AP222ac has internal antennas, whilst the Teldat AP222ac-ext has four external antennas. There is also the Teldat AP221n which is a more economical access point.
As each product name indicates, those with an “ac” extension, support the latest wireless standard.
The Teldat CIT operating system, applied by all Teldat routers, is also used by Teldat-AP22X access points for their management systems.
There are two Teldat management systems. The Wireless LAN Controller is for smaller local set ups and the Teldat Colibri NetManager is for larger and geographically extended access point deployments.
Moreover, there is a Teldat HotSpot by WiFiGo, which offers network access control and a user management system. It offers security and legal standards, as well as simplicity at the same time, especially for guests and business users.
- With the increase of wireless devices used in offices, such as laptops and tablets, Wi-Fi has been converted into a must. Employees now move much more around the office with their laptops and tablets and they need to be connected. Whether in a meeting to show work on the cloud or to directly work at locations which are not their normal desks.
- BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device) is increasing significantly in the work place, especially in certain sectors, such as education. In many cases schools or universities have not got the budget to supply students with laptops or tablets. BYOD with Wi-Fi is much simpler to manage and in the case of certain devices such as tablets, it’s the only way to have them connected.
- Virtually any hotel of whatever category to date, needs to have Wi-Fi. A Hotel with business clients, has no choice. A wired connection does not give the business client any freedom. For those Hotels who are in the holiday segment, they also need Wireless LAN to allow clients to connect to tablets or smart phones. Especially when in a foreign country, the added value of Wi-Fi given to a Hotel client is huge, as they can avoid roaming cost which are extremely high.
- Perhaps the retail and restaurant industry started deploying Wi-Fi slightly later than in offices, but it is clearly a huge advantage for these market segments. One important solution introduced by Wi-Fi has been the wireless Point of Sales. With Wireless LAN, the point of sales can be taken to wherever the client is in a shop or a restaurant and not the other way round, which was very inconvenient for the client. Another advantage that Wi-Fi has given restaurant clients is being totally connected whilst dining without having to use their personal cellular connections. This usually gives customers a broader connection and is more economical for them.
