Infrastructure : Low Energy Wi-Fi

It should be faster?

It has been a common understanding that a faster speed comes with a stronger signal. Indeed, it is partially right. According to IEEE and experience, a X dBm signal level with good noise rate is already enough to provide technically maximum speed. And nowadays when you get close to a wireless router, the rate will be X+20 dBm or even more. This 20 dBm difference is huge because +3 dBm means double radio frequency energy. Hence, +20 dBm is around X+(3*7) dBm which then the energy level is X*2*2*2*2*2*2*2 = 128X.

128 times of required level!

This is what exactly happening around us and our kids because of few reasons:

1) lack of proof that RF signal hurts us
2) lack of knowledge of calculation of energy level and best location for installation
3) require to penetrate walls and also overcome noise from environment
4) common practice to support high density clients

Although Wi-Fi signal is relatively low energy radio technology comparing to our mobile phone networks but it is surrounding us and a must in our living. We need to manage the signal as well as bandwidth and cost to minimize the risk of any health related problem when keep explored in radio full environment.

What is the solution/product?

Actually, there is no single solution that could solve every cases. We use different techniques to solve the problem:

1) measure and manage AccessPoint radio power
2) re-allocate AccessPoint location
3) radio power distribution by our Distributed Antenna System
4) shielding
