Wireless Networking

In some situations, cabling may not be a feasible option to stay connected.  For example many older buildings such as churches, offices that were converted from old homes, etc. were not built to be cabled.  Whether it's solid walls, little to no space in the attic, or endless other reasons behind your cabling woes, wireless technology could be the solution to your troubles.

WAPs

Wireless access points, also known as WAPs, are probably a tool you're familiar with inside your own home.  While the business technology behind wireless access points may get a little more in-depth, they both work off of the same technology.  Having a wireless network
allows your users to roam around more freely with the use of tablets, laptops, phones, and other portable wireless devices.  Many businesses now also provide free WiFi use to their customers by use of a dedicated segment of your network to keep them from accessing the employee network.

Point to Point

Point to point wireless bridges are an excellent solution for networking two separate physical locations together.  The bridge enables users to share an internet connection and data between locations.  It is much more economical than the traditional route of cabling businesses together, and will also save you money.

Phones

RCI provides wireless portable telephones with an excellent range.  For small offices, a consumer-grade portable phone may be adequate. However for warehouses, factories, schools, or other large facilities, you will need someone who specializes in wireless technology.  RCI carries a full range of IP and analog wireless telephones designed specifically for extended range and to be able to take any abuse that a production environment may throw at it.

Network Management

  IT needs come up all the time, usually when you least expect it.  Sometimes it really is as easy as a simple reboot, however sometimes the issue requires professional intervention.

For your IT troubleshooting needs, RCI offers managed IT as a service.  For a nominal monthly fee, we will take care of all your companies network needs.   Is your network having a meltdown? Are you having a meltdown because of your network?  Need advice on software and hardware purchases?  Whether it's a simple question that can be answered over the phone, or a major repair or programming issue that requires onsite attention, we have you covered.   We offer competitive rates and give our clients the piece of mind to know that no matter the problem, they don't have to solve it on their own.
