Airvine University Applications Chapter 2A, multi family units.
We’re all familiar with multi family units. Many of us live in a multi family unit. But how’s that network? When was the Wi-Fi installed in that multi family unit? Notice the multi family unit, the MDU.
Did they use IoT to control your heating or your electricity? Is there video security around the complex? All of these things were probably not envisioned when those buildings were first constructed.
The problem in the MDU space, existing older cabling doesn’t have the capacity and the performance that you need for all these expanded applications.
And if you’re going to go ahead and try and upgrade that application, it can be disruptive to tenants. Running new cable can be very costly and time consuming. Often these cables need to be deployed in conduits, which is an additional cost. There’s a lengthy permit process that usually goes along with these re-cabling projects.
And the growth of IoT on existing networks is a security nightmare. There’s not an IT executive out there who’s comfortable with the idea of having his IoT network and his information network on the same piece of wire.
And if you want to offer your tenants a consistent user experience throughout the property, you likely want to deploy managed Wi-Fi. Today, many property owners can’t deploy managed Wi-Fi because the infrastructure is owned by a third party. Enter the Wave Tunnel solution by Airvine.
This solution is multi Gigabit connectivity. It is low latency, and as we mentioned it is wireless, so deployment can be done with just a few boxes hanging on a ceiling and you’ve got a multi Gigabit connection.
Installing a wave tunnel node as you can see in the lower right, requires nothing more than a screwdriver and a smartphone with minimal installation effort and time.
These networks can be deployed in days or as much as a week if you’re doing a larger project.
As always with any wireless solution offered by Airvine, security is top of mind. Our VineOS operating system offers triple layer security to ensure that your your networks will be secured within and without.
With this multi Gigabit low latency solution, you can deploy Wi-Fi throughout the complex, not just in tenant departments.
It can be used for leak detection, door locks, HVAC control, and cameras.
So if you’re an MDU owner or a property manager and you’re looking to figure out how you’re going to improve this situation, come click right here and we’ll give you a 5 to 8 minute video that goes into more detail as to exactly how the wave tunnel solution is right for you.
