New York City construction companies face many challenges out in the field, not the least of which is finding a clear, reliable Wi-Fi signal at the job site. The reason for needing a strong wireless signal is simple: Construction foremen need to be able to email back and forth with their associates at the home office, and they also need to have Web access to many different sites that aid them in their tasks. This is crucial, actually, for a construction foreman, who can then forgo carrying around loads of bulky blueprints and other documents in favor of accessing them online. Also, the cell data plans subscribed to by foremen may not be enough to cover them in the field. Race Computer Services of the NJ/NYC metro area helps foremen dial in Wi-Fi signals using mobile devices such as phones, tablets and laptops that have the proper network permissions, data plans and access.
Knowing that it is absolutely vital that New York construction foremen have full, unfettered Wi-Fi network access, getting construction companies hooked up with reliable IT systems experts is another challenge. This is where Race Computer Services comes in. Their long list of IT services includes mobility and wireless solutions, along with virtualization, security and cloud computing. And, with the City of New York partnering with more than 50 communications companies to convert nearly 9,700 pay phones into Wi-Fi hotspots, the work of companies like Race Computer Services just got that much easier. But, a challenge still exists in constructing connectivity that doesn’t “bleed” or drop off, as well as keeping those connections secure in the strictest sense.
The Race for Wi-Fi Solutions
Thanks to New York’s Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications (DoITT) and their move to advance the Big Apple’s wireless connectivity via outmoded, repurposed pay phones, construction companies will now be able to connect to Wi-Fi hotspots anywhere in New York City. But having the city become, virtually, one big hotspot presents new challenges. A major one is keeping data transmissions secure. And, with big, important construction projects, secrecy could be a matter of national security— for real. The prevalence of hackers hacking into Wi-Fi signals is at a fever pitch these days, and cybersecurity has become a red-letter issue. But, Race CS IT experts have enough collective experience to be able to offer construction foremen up-to-date, airtight data security solutions when going wireless.
