Technical Requirements of a project

Some of the Technical Requirements of our projects

This section will contain a breakdown of the technical components and how we envisage to maintain and upgrade the network to achieve maximum uptime, bandwidth and throughput, all to ensure that the end user has a positive experience when connected to the Wi-Fi.

Hardware overview

The below contains a breakdown of how the current hardware will be managed and the hardware types that will be utilised for the expansion of the Wi-Fi network;

Access Points.

  • Entelek will use Ruckus Wireless equipment connected to a cloud-based ruckus controller for centralised monitoring and maintenance of all existing access points and new access points

  • The Wireless equipment will cater for the following Wireless band standards IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wave 2

  • The access points will make use of the following security, WPA-PSK, WPA-TKIP, WPA2 AES, 802.11i, Dynamic PSK.

  • All Access Points will make use of dynamic channelfly that uses machine learning to automatically find the least congested channels

  • An access point will have the capability to carry 100 concurrent users

  • It will be possible to provide and manage Open access services to 3rd party clients, the access point can provision up to 31 SSID’s per access point

  • Access points have the capability to make use of smartcast QOS (Quality of Service).

  • Access points are IPv4 and IPv6 capable

  • Access points use between 7.9W - 11.86W

  • Access point will be powered by POE (Power over Ethernet) and is 802.3af/at compatible


  • All cabling to the access points will use CAT6 cabling

  • Cable will be a solid core

  • Cable will be UV protected including foil protection and braiding to prevent any cable damage

  • Cables will be terminated utilising shielded CAT6 RJ45 connectors


  • Entelek will use Ubiquiti Tough/Edge switches for centralised monitoring, configuring and bulk firmware upgrades.

  • POE out Voltage range 22-24VDC

  • Max power consumption 60W

  • Passive POE

  • Wall mountable for ease of installation in outdoor enclosures

  • Operating temperatures -25 to 55 Degrees Celsius

  • Management Network interface is 10/100 Ethernet port

  • Data Port interfaces are 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports

  • Switches can be remotely monitored on a central dashboard that provides uptime, latency, port throughput and CPU utilisation

  • VLAN capabilities for Open Access

  • Alerts can be configured for downtime on the device itself and centralised dashboard


  • Cabinets will be locked with a unique key and lock

  • The cabinets will be big enough to house all relevant equipment in them

  • The cabinets will be protected from erosion
