TCIC practices the 3 steps of wireless networking technology selection! What do we mean by 3 steps?

We need collaborative wireless tools and technologies

1. Untethered communications solutions go well beyond the desktop IP phone, by extending your coverage to VoIP phones, PDAs, cell phones, Laptops and any new IP enabled device.

2. Applications such as e-mail, voicemail, instant messaging, or text messaging are a given

3. Presence capabilities to access contact availability and communication preference (phone, e-mail, IM, or text message) is a must

4. Audio- and video-conferencing capabilities are needed to allow users to share documents on demand

It must be an intuitive technological Implementation

1. Wired and wireless IP networking technologies bring a whole new dimension to corporate connectivity and the use of data, we encourage deploying these

2. Device specific applications running on laptop and netbook computers, PDAs, mobile phones, smart phones, and wireless IP phones need ease of use tools to be of value.

3. Training and uptake should be easy for the user.

4.Security solutions are needed to prevent unauthorized access and information gathering

The system must be context aware

1. Network aware applications bind the pieces together

2.Wireless LANs must aid in getting location based services on mobile devices, assets and people throughout a building

3. Active and passive RF identification (RFID) and 802.11 tags need be smart enough to alert you that that assets have moved, changed condition like volume, speed, direction and availability
