After an introductory assessment, APN will work with your IT department and park management to complete a site survey to determine the most appropriate locations for installation. From there, we’ll install all of the components to deliver Wi-Fi to both visitors and park staff.
Upon completion of the site survey, we’ll install the system… we’ll just need access to electricity (typically through a light post) that will power our access points. Before the system is live, we’ll restrict access to any sites that aren’t family friendly. We’ll provide bimonthly reports that track usage patterns that can be invaluable for a wide range of departmental issues from resources scheduling to security.
