In a rapidly evolving business landscape, organizations face a new set of connectivity and security challenges. Some of the common and/or trending network infrastructure and connectivity problems include:

Scenario 1: Poor wireless experience – End-users experience constant wireless disconnect/reconnect while roaming throughout an office. Applications behave poorly when transitioning from back and forth from a wired to wireless network.

Scenario 2: Secure resource access regardless of user location or endpoint type (LAN, Wireless, VPN) is an issue. In the post-COVID world, organizations will look to provide increased employee flexibility by offering a hybrid workplace where only a small subset of staff work in the office at any given time. From a network perspective, the challenge is to provide reliable, convenient connectivity while adhering to a “zero-trust model.”

Scenario 3: During the early days for the COVID-19 pandemic, many hospitals had to provide medical services out of parking lots and medical tents. With traditional patient screening methods no longer feasible, hospitals needed a new way for patient screening processes while: 1) maintaining social distancing from other non-COVID patients, and 2) providing essential data services and real-time access to—and update of—patient medical records.

Solving for Scenario 1: Derive Technologies has developed a phased approach that improves RF services and ensures a thorough and reliable troubleshooting experience. We utilize our in-depth knowledge, expertise, and industry- and application-based best practices to identify and correct wireless radio frequency issues and deliver a secure, scalable, high-performance wireless infrastructure. Derive's methodology and approach includes:

Phase1: Wireless Network Site Survey

We use the Ekahau Pro software tool to identify all wireless RF-related issues during the network site survey phase. The Ekahau tool generates a list of problems presently affecting the wireless network which require investigation and resolution. Issues identified during this phase can include co-channel interference and poor signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), which indicates how much wireless signal strength exceeds ambient noise levels.

Phase2: Fine-Tune Wireless Radio Frequency

In conjunction with the client's IT staff, Derive recommends changes to the wireless network during the fine-tuning phase, utilizing a real-time spectrum analyzer to verify proposed changes. Some changes may be disruptive, hence our need to work closely with an organization’s IT staff. Examples of disruptive changes may include (but not limited to) assigning a static channel to a specific access point, reducing the transmit power to a particular access point, or disabling unneeded radios.

Solving for Scenario 2: Leveraging policy-based access control solutions like Cisco’s Identity Services Engine or Aruba’s ClearPass Policy Manager, we automate provisioning of numerous resources and provide a secure access strategy, regardless of endpoint device type or user locations (local or remote). Both products provide a rich set of features and functionality to help secure the network:

  • Wired, wireless, and VPN network admissions control with device health posturing and profiling
  • Network segmentation, ensuring only permitted end-to-end traffic flows may traverse the network, and enabling organizations to realize a zero-trust security model

Solving for Scenario 3: Derive Technologies’ engineering made this possible with the Emergency Network Extension System (ENES) kit. ENES provides a “network in a box”—a high-performance, easily deployed means of utilizing LTE cellular data service vendors to securely extend a hospital’s internal data network to one or more temporary, remote locations with the need for additional wired infrastructure. Remote sites like medical relief tents placed in parking lots and other ad-hoc sites gain secure Internet and VPN access to hospital resources. This unique solution satisfies hospitals and other healthcare organizations that experience the need to expand the physical range of their data connectivity capabilities to accommodate patient care needs. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic proved the effectiveness of this solution.
