The Town of Canmore has a population of roughly 13,000 residents and is approximately an hour and half from downtown Calgary and five minutes from Banff National Park. Canmore has over 71 kilometres of multi-use trails within the town limits and is within close proximity to 5 major ski resorts. The Town of Canmore was looking to replace their existing Wi-Fi network. The access points offered limited range and management capabilities. They also wanted to eliminate their yearly licensing fee and have the capabilities to seamlessly increase their network.
Rigstar’s Network Team visited the seven (7) sites throughout the town and tested the current signal strength in each facility. Our team prepared a detailed site survey, which highlighted the networks current health and options for an enhanced Wi-Fi system. Based on our proposed recommendations the IT Department within the Town of Canmore selected a solution that met their initial criteria. Rigstar’s Field Technicians replaced the existing 26 access points and re-tested the signal strength throughout the buildings. Our Network Team setup a management portable for the end user and trained them on the applications within the software.
The newly installed Wi-Fi system exceeded the Town of Canmore’s expectations and they’re extremely happy about not having to pay a yearly licensing fee. The system is designed to allow for future growth and can be managed through any smart device.
