Axis Group – Wireless Solution

The Brief/Challenge

The Axis Group of companies provide high quality facility services to discerning clients from a variety of sectors. Their core expertise lies in the delivery of security, cleaning, and reception management services.

The client advised they were experiencing a lot of wireless connection issues in some of their offices. It was found with the increasing number of laptops, mobiles and tablets connecting to the office WiFi, users were having connectivity issues due to the network being overloaded and running on low end Wireless devices.

Also as part of the IT Strategy there was a motivation to move onto a more secure wireless platform to improve performance, security and compliancy. 


The Solution

As a Cisco Meraki partner our recommendation was to migrate the client sites over to the Cloud managed platform. Cisco Meraki is the leader in cloud controlled WiFi, Routing and Security. 

LP Networks assessed the various locations and physically installed the devices across the offices in the UK in a phased approach. Authentication with Active Directory was configured so when users connect to the Corporate Wireless Network they do so with their Network logon credentials.

Then other wireless networks were created to provide Guest wireless access and separation from the internal network.

Benefits

Since the implementation, the service tickets associated with wireless have almost been iradicated completely. Employees moving between locations can do so seamlessly.

The Axis Group now have a Secure wireless access solution which benefits them in the following ways.

  • Improved performance, stability and reliability
  • Enhanced security and compliance
  • Corporate branded landing pages to enhance professional outlook
  • Authentication via Active Directory for seamless connection
  • Secure, isolated Guest Wireless for visitors or contractors 
  • Automated reports
  • Monitoring Alerts
  • If required there are marketing benefits with the ability to configure Splash pages for public network to link to Facebook or other marketing engines.
