Working from home?

Working from home?

How to avoid poor video conferencing!

With the corona virus around, many of us are working from home. As we are all adapting to this new situation, we want to come across as professional as possible, with the kids running around or consuming all your bandwidth for gaming.

Simple rules to improve the experience

A few simple rules can make the conferencing experience a lot better.

  1. If possible, join the conference from a separate room, where the cat is not jumping in front of the webcam and dryer isn’t emitting the main noise.
  2. Make sure you position yourself in such way that the light is coming from the front, not from the back. Otherwise, your picture will come across as very dark.
  3. Test your connection, microphone, camera and speakers of your laptop well in advance of the call. It can be very disturbing when someone is holding up the meeting, because their microphone is not working.
  4. Position your camera, so that is at eye level. No one wants the view up your nostrils during the meeting.
  5. When you are not talking, go on mute. Most laptops have the speakers and microphones very close together, often resulting in annoying feedback. Also, the entire team does not need to hear you ordering your pizza during the call.

How to avoid choppy audio, freezing video and failures to share screens?

In most cases, this is simply the result of not enough bandwidth.  Either your current Wi-Fi system is not providing enough coverage and throughput in your home or some-one in your family is using the bandwidth you need for gaming or Netflix.

Upgrade your Wi-Fi system

Assuming that your ISP is providing enough signal, both can be resolved by upgrading your Wi-Fi system.

With modern Wi-Fi equipment you can simply allocate a maximum bandwidth to that x-box, streaming TV and prioritize the bandwidth allocation for your work or school laptops. This is called ‘Quality of Service’ and is a handy tool built in professional AP’s to avoid your video conference failing.

Most retail grade Wi-Fi-routers have very cheap antenna’s and even though the box said it offers a Gazillion Gigabit connection, it usually doesn’t. Apart from the quality of the antenna’s these devices are often placed in worst possible spots for getting a signal to, like the basement or electricity closet.

Let the router route and let the wireless be done by access points. In this way, you can place the AP’s in the best spots to cover the entire house and get a consistent signal throughout the house.

Taking Wireless Networking to the next level!

Taking Wireless Networking to the next level!

Like with all our products, we think about the applications of the products, how it is going to be installed and what challenges an installer might encounter when installing and then we start designing.

Niveo makes life easier, with the best possible performance.

Here are a few examples of what we have done (so far) with wireless networking.

Start with the best possible components
When making an access point, it is not the speeds the marketing department puts on the box that is important. That are just trinkets. What is important is how it performs: Actual throughput speeds, usable coverage, stability of the signal, sensitivity of the antennas.
These make the difference between professional equipment and mass market retail grade DIY equipment: There is no financial shortcut to great performance! As a rule, we use the best chipset, antennas available, outperforming nearly everything out there! 

  •  Much higher throughput
  • Much better effective coverage
  • Much more stable signal and low risk of drop off
  • Much higher capacity for handling and managing multiple clients
  • 120+ concurrent users on a single access point
  • Exceptionally high NAT conversion


Build very intelligent software

  • Built in AP-guard software the AP’s can detect issues and autonomous resolve issues by a reboot sequence.
  • Unique Reboot Scheduler, prevents issu
  • es and congestion and maintains the highest possible performance
  • Built in channel analyzer, helps finding the best channel for optimized performance…Hey, it can even do it automatically for you!
  • It will automatically adjust the channels if interference changes
  • Smart QoS for prioritization

 

Seamless roaming

  • Very quick hand off from AP to AP
  • No latency as with ‘repeater’ or Mesh networks

 

Build very handy Controllers

  • Controller based load balancing and flow control, so the wireless streams are distributed over the AP’s to optimize network performance
  • Supports up to 200 AP’s in a network (NWAC-7000)
  • Supports up to 20 AP’s in a network (NRS-RC1)
  • Built in Gateway
  • Built in Firewall
  • Built in Router
  • And even a Built in PoE-switch (NRS-RC1)

Make you do as little as possible

  • Zero config installation of the NRS-RC1 and the NRS-AP10
  • Just plug, play & walk away!
  • But if you really want, please see next section:

 

High levels of management

  • The AP’s can be used with or without controller: It will still do roaming!!!
  • Cloud management in case you want to access it remotely. But why would you? It does everything by itself, so we built something you don’t actually need.
  • Supports captive portals/authentication portals for internet café and hospitality
  • Supports Facebook and Google authentication
