Dear Tengo Family,
I hope this update finds you well during your fall preparations to be in a new and cooler season.
WiFi Network turn-ups for the Winter season have commenced! For those of you who don’t know. Tengo uses these onsite “turn-ups” to tune and validate that networks are operating efficiently before a season starts. With disuse in an offseason, a turn-up can ensure a seamless season opening! WiFi Turn-ups were so popular for customers last year that we expanded the offering & participating locations this year!
In other news, as many of you are aware, a fundamental aspect of a seamless WiFi installation involves the local/state-regulated process of permitting. We’re in the midst of supporting a customer in Florida who will be presenting to a city planning council. This is a very complex permitting issue; some of the city staff are attempting to rewrite the definition of a WiFi access point, thus further complicating the permitting process (I think we helped write the book on WiFi access points!). Lastly, see the photo below of a recent and very iconic installation we performed in New York City! On a personal note, my mom turned 86 on September 24th. Happy Birthday mom!
Key thoughts for your Consideration
- The 802.11B operates on 2.4 GHz frequency at up to 11 Mbps (megabits-per-second)
- The 80211G operates on the 2.4GHz frequency at up to 54 Mbps
- 802.11N can operate on either 5 GHz frequency at a theoretical maximum speed of 300 Mbps or on the 2.4 frequency in “mixed mode” which will support systems only capable of using 802.11B or 802.11G (2009)
- In essence, 802.11AC is a supercharged version of 802.11N, offering link speeds ranging from 344 Mbps, all the way through several gigabits per second. (2013; WAVE2 in 2015)
