A radio frequency (RF) site survey is the first step in the deployment of a wireless network and is the process of planning and designing a suitable network by understanding:      

  • Required wireless coverage      
  • Network capacity
  • Roaming capability
  • Quality of Service

The survey involves a site visit to run tests to determine the presence of RF interference and identify optimum installation locations for access points. Further analysis of building floor plans, visual inspections of the facility, and usage of site survey tools determines the appropriate placement of wireless devices.

Ridgewall will also work with you to identify and source the most appropriate hardware for your business as well as the installation and testing.

Vehicle installations

Ridgewall offers nationwide installation services for a wide range of manufacturer-approved in-vehicle cradles.

Forklift Installations

We can recommend and install a range of forklift hardware including mobile computers, barcode scanners, forklift terminals, etc.

Clients use our Pre-sales Tech Support to identify the correct products and services to match their specific business requirements. The team are able to give advice on a range of criteria, from whether a device is rugged enough for the client's working environment, through to printer speeds, barcode reader scan ranges, and much more.

We also currently provide telephone support for customer applications if required. Dedicated helpdesk operatives are trained to a very high level by the customer initially and then by our own team in the use of the customer's application. We then provide 1st and 2nd line support to the customer with 3rd line support being handed back to the customer's solution provider. Our 3rd line support still handles the relationship with the end user but also manages the relationship with the service provider, with SLA/KPI elements captured throughout the process.
