The challenge: Coverage of a warehouse by WiFi including HIGH-DENSITY-SHELF
The coverage of a warehouse including HigH-Density-shelf is a real challenge because the whole area needs to be covered by WLAN. By using conventional solutions it means very often a lot of wireless equipment
A warehouse does not stand still: Sometimes it is totally full of goods and the next day it is almost empty. The consequences are disruptions and errors, e.g. interferences, roaming problems, and – as a result – connection disrupts. Neither a well-done site survey can predict this exactly. A well-sectored concept is essential in the 2,4-GHz-band as only three channels work without overlapping.
Ocean Fair International faced this problem. The question was: Is there any way to prevent such problems in a “moving” warehouse world?
The solution: Radiating Cable
With Radiating Cable we are able to cover huge areas with Wifi-signals – by using fewer channels! especially Mobile-shelf-Warehouses are typical fields of application to use Radiating Cable.
Today the Ocean Fair International is using WLAN with Radiating Cables in their headquarters in Techno Park (Jebel Ali), Dubai (U.A.E.). After visiting the site the SIEVERS-GROUP-RF-specialists designed the concept for a full-coverage-antenna-solution. The installation was done by TLS-IT engineering-team supervised by SIEVERS-engineers (Germany).
By using Radiating Cable the number of the installed access points diminishes about to one-third of a conventional solution. Additionally, you need much less cabling to connect the access points, the high frequency inside the warehouses falls; further fewer channels mean fewer interferences and roaming-processes inWLAN.
Redundant WLAN-surroundings can be installed by feeding-in several access points with so-called combiners. An intrusion of DECT-signals were also possible (2,4 GHz cable).
Radiating Cable can guarantee an all-over coverage in all critical surroundings – not only in High-Density-Warehouses. The innovative system can also be utilized in offices with suspended ceilings.
