LAN3 Helps Leading Barristers' Chamber with Wireless Roll-out.

Faced with a move to a new 40,000 sq ft office, 39 Essex Chambers required a solution that would cause zero disruption to the work of the Chamber’s 100+ Barristers, while leaving flexibility to ‘throttle up’ the system in the future.

LAN3 installed a cloud managed Aerohive Wi-Fi solution, and the difference was immediate – to date Alex Herbert, IT Manager at 39 Essex Chambers, has received zero complaints from staff regarding the reliability of the wireless.

How to Provide Fast and Reliable Wi-Fi at an International Barristers’ Chamber

 

A move to a new 40,000 sq ft office prompted a search for a new solution, and the selection criteria was clear: “We wanted to ensure the new system would provide reliable coverage, would be simple to deploy and manage, and allow for the expansion the network in the future” said Alex Herbert.

“As the volume of both staff and clients bringing their own device to the office and connecting to the wireless infrastructure continued to rise, we realised it was time to implement a high-performance wireless solution that was BYOD ready.”

“With offices as far away as Singapore, the ability to manage our entire network from one central point back in the UK was also key to us.”

 “The new wireless network is saving me time and is very reliable. I’ve received zero complaints from staff and clients.

“The flexibility the Aerohive solution is going to provide me moving forward, once we ‘throttle up’ the system, is a real benefit.”

How LAN3's Solution Helped

The ease of implementation in partnership with LAN3 exceeded expectations: "The first AP was up and running in 15 minutes, and subsequent units literally as fast as they could be unboxed and plugged in," he said.

Additionally, 39 Essex Chambers enjoy the support structure working with LAN3 offers. Alex Herbert said: “As specialists in working with Aerohive and Extreme Networks, LAN3 were the obvious choice due to the Engineers who specialise in the these technologies, and the dedicated Service Centre who support us, rather than simply being box shifters.”
