Group 4 Project 2 any areas that may lack a strong enough signal in which to access the network, thus either moving their devices, or, installing an WiFi extender to boost the signal for that specific area. This product can be downloaded onto any smartphone or a tablet. Once installed, the device can receive any signal from any wireless device within range, and can supply to the user data to assist them in providing a connection to the network. To download the app, the user will have the ability to use the app, free of charge, for the first 30 days. Afterward, the user will be charged an initial fee for the use of the product and all patches during the version will be free. If there is an upgrade to the product, the user, who has already purchased the product, will only need to pay a small fee for the upgrade while other users, downloading it for the first time will pay the full price. Business goals and problem being solved - submitted by Diane The problem that will be solved with our newly created app Wi-Fi Find, is to have the capabilities to find different areas that does not receive a wireless signal on a smartphone, tablet, or any other wireless device. A wireless dead zone is an area within a business, house, office, or an apartment that does not have Wi-Fi coverage in which, wireless devices cannot connect to the wireless network. If the Wi-Fi does not work properly then one will not be able to receive a signal. Wi-Fi Find will pin point those problem areas quickly with the use of any wireless device. The interference of anything with Wi-Fi radio waves most likely can produce a dead zone. Many offices, houses, different businesses, and apartments were built way before Wi-Fi was created. A lot of old houses has walls that are made of very thick plaster that usually has chicken wire to support the walls in which, can block Wi-Fi signaling; however, in offices file cabinets can also block Wi-Fi signaling, as well (Hoffman, 2013, p. 1).

Group 4 Project 3 With downloading our app Wi-Fi on any wireless device, one will be able to quickly identify a dead zone by simply picking up the device and viewing the red, yellow, and green light indicators. If the indicator signaling is at a low level it will become red and the signal strength is unreliable and the wireless device will have a low speed. If the indicator signaling is at a medium level or in the middle of the indicator, it will become yellow and the signal strength is

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
