INEOS are one of the largest global manufacturers of petrochemicals, speciality chemicals and oil products with revenues over $60 billion.

The challenge

INEOS are one of the largest global manufacturers of petrochemicals, speciality chemicals and oil products with revenues over $60 billion. It comprises of 34 businesses each with a major chemical company heritage. Its production network spans 181 sites in 22 countries throughout the world.

INEOS engaged Performance Networks to conduct a wireless site survey covering their Hans Crescent Knightsbridge Offices.

Users were experiencing drop outs across the WiFi network using a variety of devices across all five floors.

The hardware used onsite was High end dual-band Cisco Access points (APs), switches and controllers.

Survey results

Performance Networks used Ekahau Site Survey/Spectrum Analysis and Wireshark captures to perform a full wireless analysis and build a thorough report detailing the current WiFi network, issues, causes and remedies.

The survey report detailed several issues that were contributing to the performance issues being experienced, these included heavily congested 2.4GHz band, isolated coverage gaps, client device roaming issues between APs and too many client devices using the 2.4GHz band.

The solution

Performance Networks made various recommendations following the initial survey, all documented to the client in a detailed WiFi optimisation report built from the initial survey data.

The first stage of the works was to re-position and mount the APs to fill the coverage gaps, these works were carried out by the Ineos team working from the Performance Networks design survey information.

Once all optimisation works and user testing had had been carried out a verification survey was undertaken.  This then detailed both technically and graphically the performance of the optimised WiFi network.

The results

We’re now pleased to be working with INEOS on a design and implementation project at a new site they have recently opened.

Cables

Ineos engaged us to review the configurations of multiple Cisco catalyst switches across 4 Ineos sites and provide best practise recommendations.

The Remit

Ineos engaged us to review the configurations of multiple Cisco catalyst switches across 4 Ineos sites and provide best practise recommendations.

The Audit

A list of recommendations was supplied detailing:

  • Upgrade firmware to latest recommended versions
  • Best practice Cisco security hardening recommendations
  • Consistent configurations for stability across all switches.

A full Visio diagram was provided showing the current physical & logical layout.

We have also provided Ineos with multiple WiFi designs & Fault finding surveys for their sites.
