A Creative Solution to Warehouse Wi-Fi Connectivity

 

When installing a Multigigabit Wi-Fi system in a large facility like a warehouse, how can you run the Ethernet cabling long enough to provide proper connectivity and PoE to the Wireless Access Points (WAP), without additional IDFs, boosters or extenders? In this video, you will see how Creative Security Solutions of Piscataway, NJ simplified the design of this 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi deployment.

These days, wireless and mobile technologies like Wi-Fi 6 and 802.11ac Wave 2 have revolutionized how warehouse’s function. Their efficiency and productivity now often hinge on having a robust and reliable wireless infrastructure. The installation needs to satisfy the expectation, today and in the future - of multigigabit speed – without dead zones and constant disconnections of the multitude of wireless devices that keep a modern warehouse operation going strong. 

It remains a fact that the wireless Internet in a facility like a large warehouse depends on extended cable runs to provide the power and the connectivity to the network backbone. In situations like these, installers and end users have normally had to make compromises like:

  • allocating precious square footage for IDFs or MDFs (instead of warehouse rack space)
  • installing boosters/extenders up in the ceiling where servicing those devices requires renting a scissors lift (expensive, time consuming, etc.)

On this video, you will see how Creative Security Solutions very much lived up to its name and found a solution to this challenge – running cable an extended distance from “Point A to Point B” to implement Multi-Gig Wi-Fi across a massive warehouse space - with “no extra equipment” and “no extra costs.”

Hint: It is a GameChanger!
