Wifirst's deployment factory

Wifirst relies on a precise and rigorous project methodology, based on the experience acquired through the deployment of 250,000 access points, 30,000 switches and 20,000 Internet links in France and abroad.

Project management in 3 phases:  « Think, Build, Run »

Think Build Run EN 2023
During the numerous large-scale LAN/WiFi and WAN projects we have conducted, we have always brought the same rigour to the deployment phase, as this phase directly conditions the operability of the service, and ultimately its quality and customer satisfaction. Wifirst's ability to carry out massive deployments is based on several key success factors.

A flexible, responsive and scalable structure in Europe...

Wifirst has been able to maintain an unrivalled flexibility and agility, thanks to its reactive structure and its unique specialisation in the WiFi operator business. This allows us to adapt our approach to the specificities of each client's context, whether it is to deploy an independent establishment or a fleet of several thousand sites.

This structure is supported in particular by staff resources:

  • centralised project management based on a team of qualified and experienced telecom project managers (a dedicated project manager is assigned to each new site)
  • an in-house team of auditors to carry out precise technical studies prior to deployment
  • on-site installations carried out by a network of service providers trained and certified by our technical teams
This organisation allows us to manage a large number of simultaneous projects and therefore to equip many sites in a short time.

.... but also in the rest of the world!

Wifirst is structured to be able to respond easily and quickly to connectivity needs around the world. We are running infrastructure in almost 40 countries in 2021 and this number is growing steadily through the development of our existing customers and the signing of new international contracts.

The centralisation of our project management/maintenance activities and the use of local service providers for on-site interventions (deployment and maintenance), trained and certified by our technical teams, allow us to export our activity to any country in the world in a very short timeframe in accordance with the needs of our clients.

In addition, we have headquarters in London (UK) and Barcelona (Spain), allowing us to develop an international culture internally and increase our footprint in the European market.

Tools and procedures adapted to industrialise deployment

Wifirst teams have the technical means to easily orchestrate the various components involved in a deployment project (interactions with the customer, organisation of interventions, management of equipment, etc.):

  • Wifirst Deployment, a tailor-made project management tool, allows the breakdown and monitoring of each stage of the project
  • Wifirst Site Survey, a tool for carrying out pre-visits and WiFi coverage surveys, developed to compensate for the shortcomings of existing tools and directly connect to our information system
  • A logistic platform where all the equipment necessary for the deployment is stored, dimensioned to respond to large volumes and respect precise deadlines

The industrialisation of our deployment processes and tools contributes directly to the success of our clients' projects, by optimising the quality of the installations and compliance with the deadlines imposed, in a climate of totally transparent communication.
