Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN)

The Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) service provides user mobility within an agency office building to visitors or clients with access to the Internet. WLAN service is designed to serve agency visitors and guests. It is a shared technology and offers no guarantees for consistent bandwidth or performance. During the design phase, DoIT will determine access point locations based on coverage and device counts (access points) that will allow for optimum speed and access. An average of thirty devices can connect for each wireless access point installed. Access points are connected via cabling and a switch to your network’s WAN bandwidth.

Service Detail

There is limited security within this wireless network (i.e. simple SSID password).

Range depends on design and composition of the building.

Performance can be affected by the number of users signed on at any given time.

The wireless network is protected by the DoIT ISP firewall.

Price/Cost Description

For more information regarding pricing, please refer to our FY21-FY23 Service Rates Guide.

Customer Responsibilities

Network Engineering & Design

Network design services are geared toward making an agency’s data and voice networks operate more efficiently. Many agency networks are operating at below their optimum efficiency. Inefficient networks are responsible for a tremendous amount of lost time, money, productivity, and business. DoIT’s network professionals can design and spec new networks, tune existing legacy networks and help to plan for future upgrades necessary to keep data flowing smoothly.

Offering design and installation services, as well as, staff training and experience with a wide range of networking equipment allow DoIT staff to quickly and efficiently implement the right solution. Additionally, the team is a great source for an independent third party audit if an agency already has a network but is not sure it is running to its full or desired potential.

What causes inefficient network processes? Often it’s outdated equipment. Technology marches forward at a fast pace, and components that were state-of-the-art a few years ago can become obsolete. Other causes of inefficient networks are poor quality equipment, poor implementation, and poor maintenance. These are all areas that go hand-in-hand with network design services. DoIT staff is trained to consider not just planning and implementation, but the whole picture. This picture includes both network upgrades and network maintenance. These services ensure that the newly designed network doesn’t fall into the cycle of neglect and disarray that’s often the downfall of even the most conscientiously designed networks.

Process Steps:

  • Customer provides overview of current and future network requirements.
  • DoIT Design staff produces a technical network design document that addresses all features of the network requirements statement.
  • DoIT technical staff provides oversight, testing and optional implementation services during the network installation phase.

Benefits Include:

  • Knowledge of State Government
  • Established procedures for skill acquisition and staff augmentation of DoIT staff
  • Experience in multiple network platforms/solutions
  • Better understanding of your business requirements
  • Sharing of ideas between government entities
  • Projects are tracked and status communicated by industry recognized standards, procedures and tools

Business Value:

This service provides cost and personnel savings because the customer does not have to establish or maintain professional technical staff to satisfy their technology needs. The service allows the customer to concentrate on their core business. Cost avoidance, through good communication, will be realized as a result of project management skills.
