Strengthen Your Wireless Network Connection
When it comes to wireless communications, most industrial environments are three to five years behind the carpeted space. After years of focusing heavily on corporate office and branch WLANs, many organizations are surprised at what they’re finding when they look to leverage today’s advanced mobility tools beyond the carpeted space. They’re discovering that while they’ve been concentrating elsewhere, their industrial wireless communications needs have both substantially grown and radically changed, to the point where existing networks and traditional approaches will no longer support the operational performance that is required to thrive in a changing market.
Industrial wireless network operations and IT managers face a host of difficult challenges that are unique to industrial environments. Overcoming these challenges is what an industrial strength wireless network is all about. You need a system that’s tough, intelligent and reliable enough to meet and master a host of major communications challenges you don’t find in carpeted spaces.
As you examine your current industrial wireless system, or plan a new or upgraded network, it’s crucial to understand the specific challenges you will face and the capabilities your network will need to provide to overcome them. Thoughtful and thorough answers to these five questions will help you ensure that your wireless network is truly industrial strength.
