Overview

Transistor is a new fintech-focused coworking space situated in Kreuzberg Berlin. They opened earlier this year, and host Financial Technology orientated freelancers and start-ups. Consequently, they required cutting edge network support for their clients.

Network Challenges

  • Due to the public nature of the space, a high level of network security was required, both through the wireless and wired networks.
  • The office is situated in an old repurposed industrial building. The architecture uses a large amount of metal and glass, which created a challenging environment for a wireless network.
  • A high level of RF (Radio Frequency) interference from the neighboring offices disrupted the the wireless clients from receiving continuous connectivity.
  • A variety of users on the network required special attention. These included software developers, video streamers and fintech companies sharing the same medium and internet connectivity.
  • The previous system had insufficient internet connectivity and no backup line.

Network Solutions

After detailed analysis and budget considerations, our team delivered the following tailored solution.

Design

A comprehensive site survey including spectrum analysis was conducted and the results guided us to overcome the challenging environment. A network designed to support high density usage on regular basis and supporting a spontaneous growth due to events and large meetings.

Implementation

All the products were installed and configured by our team based on the industry best practices, combining security and ultra speed internet connectivity. The network is secured through a 802.1x protocol with AES encryption. Guests and temporary network users authenticate through a captive portal and use a separate network.

Support

On-going support during the business hours covers all IT topics starting from wifi connectivity issues to more complex VPN and Routing diagnostics.
