So you’ve deployed a few office Wi-Fi networks, but are you prepared for the unique challenges presented by manufacturing and warehouse environments?

Warehouse and manufacturing environments are where radio frequency (RF) starts behaving differently, and many of the other laws you’re used to don’t apply anymore either. From AP and antenna placement and AP configs to ease of maintenance and troubleshooting, everything is different in a warehouse or manufacturing facility.

Learn more from industry’s undisputed manufacturing / warehouse Wi-Fi experts, Elizabeth and Francois, on our next webinar.

Topics covered include:

  • The difference between industrial Wi-Fi and carpeted space WLANs
  • RF behavior in industrial environments
  • Challenges of high ceiling environments
  • Access point placement considerations
  • Directional antennas – where to use and how
  • Limitations set by 24/7 operational environments

„I get involved in some of the toughest Wi-Fi designs out there. We just did the Mobile World Congress Wi-Fi network that served 22,000 simultaneous users. Ekahau Site Survey was my Wi-Fi planning tool of choice there, as it always is. It’s the quickest to use, and provides superior 3D planning accuracy. Oh, and they’re friendliest bunch of folks out there – helps when you need customer support.”
