Nowadays, Wi-Fi deployments face several challenges that benefit from a collaborative industry effort to create a new level of efficiency, performance and reduced time-to-market. Given the inconsistencies in deployment methods and resulting differences in meeting end-user expectations, an industry-wide set of deployment guidelines will help ensure more a standardized approach in effectively deploying Wi-Fi networks, across industry verticals. This project defines an industry standardized approach encompassing different deployments phases across different types of environments: • Pre-installation guidelines (Site survey, Radio spectrum analysis), • Design (Design objectives & KPI targets, Wi-Fi network design), • Installation and testing (Channel management, Performance considerations), • Use cases in reality and future, • Configuration and operation

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Target Audience

Target Audience includes WBA members, Device vendors, device service provider, Wi-Fi advocates, industry analysts, Wi-Fi operators, Cellular Operators, networking equipment providers.

Business objectives

  • Harmonize Wi-Fi networks for best practice deployment addressing multiple verticals

  • Give more confidence to service providers to deploy Wi-Fi networks

Target Outcomes

The Wi-Fi Deployment Guideline Series help operators & technology players to make the best decisions when deploying their networks. The Guidelines and the Checklists cover a collection of baseline standards that encompass the lifecycle deployment phases including: Planning Guidelines, Site Survey, Radio Spectrum Analysis, Wi-Fi Network Implementation, and Configuration and Operation to targeted vertical market. This umbrella forms the basis of the Wi-Fi Deployment Guidelines Series that the WBA will extend to key industry verticals and applications. The focus areas making up the series include: In-Flight Connectivity, In-Home Wi-Fi, Connected Vehicle, Enterprise Wi-Fi, Venue/Stadium Wi-Fi, City Wi-Fi, and Hospitality Wi-Fi.
