Additional Master Units

Additional Hot Spots

Slave Units

Networking Info-Point

£800 per unit + VAT

The coverage of an Info-Point Master unit can be extended by adding wireless Access Points or 'Slaves', so that users can move seamlessly around the coverage area. This is useful at complex indoor locations that normally block Wi-Fi signals. It also increases the simultaneous user capacity for high traffic areas at major attractions.

We can survey a site and produce a test report in order to determine a network topology and budget that will guarantee coverage for visitor areas.

Wireless access points do not require network cabling, but have to be powered, which can be mains, battery, or solar.
