WiFi project Robijnhof evaluated

Wireless Leiden has realized some time ago WiFi in all community and service rooms in "verzorgingshuis Robijnhof". The effectiveness of the installation has been evaluated on June 19, 2013 by measuring the coverage in all the rooms that were included in the project.

Everywhere the reception of our WiFi was good or at least satisfactory. By making a few modifications and - if necessary - adding a few "repeaters" the reception wikk be good in all planned places.
