At the forefront of using technology for the good of their residents, Epping Forest District Council has introduced “Guest Access” allowing Wi-Fi access for visitors within their Civic Offices.
Situated to the North-East of Greater London within Essex, Epping Forest is a forward thinking district council with 125,000 people and a good portion of the ancient woodland of Epping Forest. To improve its secure wireless network it turned to AIT for advice.
Epping Forest District Council’s new secure wireless network provides better coverage and improved speed. The “controller-less” solution provides improved network resilience by removing the single point of failure and allows for a much more efficient wireless network as radio and data decisions are made at the network’s edge rather than in a data centre in another site. The solution is ideal for local government organisations who need PSN CoCo compliance and also would like to offer controlled guest access for visitors.
