Provide network connections to additional work spaces required by company expansion. The expansion require that a dual bridge be provided to an engineering area and a second bridge to two hangers that housed both engineering and aircraft maintenance functions. 


The company had a network infrastructure in place and the recommended solution was to add 802.11g bridges. Bandwidth considerations for voice over IP and data suggested a dual bridge to the engineering area for a total bandwidth of 108Mbps. Six Cisco 802.11g bridges were installed that provided an extremely reliable wireless network. In addition to the bridges, a fiber optic cable was pulled to connect the dual bridge to a second engineering work space. The second bridge supported the engineering and aircraft maintenance functions housed in two remote hangers. The engineering and aircraft maintenance areas required the installation of one bridge, 26 LAN ports, and six Cisco access points.

Main Building Installation

Main Building
Three Cisco 802.11g Bridges were installed on the main office building and connected
