Services Offerings

Carolina Advanced Digital’s Professional Services team offers a comprehensive suite of wireless networking services from scoping through implementation and ongoing support and maintenance. Tailored services are offered to meet the unique needs of client environments and projects. In addition to custom services, our core competency service packages include the packages below.

Wireless Design

Successful wireless starts with a solid wireless design which takes in to consideration a multitude of factors related to RF planning, logical network planning, security, and integration. Our team offers a full suite of design services for any enterprise wireless solution, from product selection to recommended AP placement, physical RF specifications for power and channel settings, density and coverage design, and security both integrated and overlaid. Design services can be combined with installation and configuration services, or delivered a la carte.

Predictive Mapping

Predictive mapping and planning services use specialized software to model a physical environment and determine predicted coverage, signal strength, quality and the resulting throughput. Predictive mapping is used to plan AP placement for the most effective and efficient coverage for high quality RF signal, low interference, and the best coverage to support density requirements. Predictive services are available as remote services with deliverables for a single room, a building, or an entire campus or volume of remote buildings.

Wireless Turnkey

Carolina Advanced Digital offers turnkey wireless solutions that include the wireless design, integration with the wired network including IP and VLAN planning and configuration, planning of required firewall changes, DNS, DHCP, and endpoint configurations. Full turnkey services include the physical installation of APs and any required cabling, PoE switching, and full configuration of the wireless network components, plus knowledge exchange or customized training for your wireless network management team. Services include deliverables detailing the planning, security, implementation and AP placement. 

Wireless Security Enhancement

Security is a key component of all our services, and wireless is one of the most critical environments to secure in most organizations. Wireless Security Enhancement services include a review of current wireless security posture for both management and endpoint/user connectivity to make recommendations and then implement security enhancements such as migration to 802.1X for device or user authentication, secure key exchange and encryption and enhancements to the wireless management protocols to remove less secure protocols and force encrypted management and logging.

Advanced Wireless Security Integration

In high risk and regulated environments, basic wireless security enhancements may not be sufficient to secure the wireless environment. Advanced Wireless Security Integration services use leading IDS/IPS solutions in integrated or overlay systems to add layers of security, threat mitigation, and enterprise policy control.

Custom Services

Custom services can be scoped for practically any enterprise wireless need, regardless of size or manufacturer environment.

Success Stories

Our Professional Services team has worked with hundreds of customers and wireless networks across a variety of industries ranging from K12 schools to high-security nuclear facilities at the Department of Energy.
