Factory Wireless Networks
Regardless of the size of your factory, we can accurately plan, install, configure and test a factory wireless network to ensure your employees have immediate Wi-Fi access with no signal drop outs or delays.
Factories and manufacturing environments are driving towards leaner more efficient environments in the current challenging economic times. The supply chain requires accurate real time information which supports business critical information. The introduction of ERP and planning solutions through production environments is driving the need for factory wireless. Using scanning and reader devices to transfer product and quantity information across a secure wireless network to Sales order processing and stock control systems is dramatically increasing efficiency, improving accuracy and speeding up the supply chain process.
Following recent factory wireless installations we are seeing an uptake in wireless connectivity to support the change in behaviour of the factory and manufacturing processes. Some manufacturers have been using wireless for some time and are now looking for next generation solutions to keep their competitive advantage.
The early adopters of wireless within factories typically extended their current office / fixed infrastructure to the factory floor as part of a move to a new ERP or stock control solution to refresh the current business strategy to remain competitive. These later adaptors have the benefit of utilising the latest N wireless technology which gives faster throughput of information and allow application such as voice to run in parallel with mission critical data solutions with managed Quality of Service.
The second group of businesses have had a bespoke wireless system installed but now wish to extend the coverage to all areas. This is to allow them to benefit from the range of new technologies, applications and devices to improve current performance.
From our experience, either solution requires an accurate survey and planning process to fully understand what you’re looking to do and how you can achieve it. The structure and contents of the factory will affect the performance of a wireless solution. The devices and applications you’re looking to run, whether they are fixed or moving around your site will again have a bearing on the overall performance of the wireless network.
There are many challenges to installing wireless in these environments and achieving 100% coverage to support modern factory and manufacturing appliances. The process requires experience, technical understanding and the foresight to be able to scale the solution for maximum ROI.
Following our proven approach, we have delivered a number of cost effective, secure wireless solutions into manufacturing environments.
Clear Coverage Plans - Heat maps of planned coverage generated prior to the install to simplify the solution and keep hardware costs to a minimum.
Mesh Technology - Utilised to help reduce physical cabling costs and constraints where possible.
Resilient Failover Design - Ensuring the wireless will operate at all times based on the criticality of the solution.
Affordable On/Off Site Support - Available as service level agreements operated through the PWWN support desk and carried out by our highlight experienced and qualified IT technical specialist.
By following our proven approach we are confident in delivering the perfect wireless solutions for your manufacturing environment. So much so, we offer a 100% satisfaction money back guarantee that the solution will meet your expectations laid out in the consultation.
With flexibility in procurement on a rental or capital basis, our solutions can be supported through standard break fix support or fully managed solutions delivering you a wireless solution without the hassle of managing it at a fixed monthly costs.
