Our Customers Say

“We use or have used RF Works on every new construction project that is in progress right now. They know how UCSF does business, does NOT need any hand holding or explaining IT standards or teaching them about wireless engineering, Jim just takes care of it and it works beautifully.”
“From connectivity, coverage and performance issues with the need to be sensitive to budget, we hired RF-Works to assess, design and rebuild our wireless network. Now we have an easily manageable high speed, coverage everywhere – wireless network; it works so well, we were able to discontinue TV cable services to the residence rooms, resulting in a major cost savings.”
