In today’s highly competitive business environment, logistics center operators need to run their operations more efficiently than ever before. The key efficiency tools used in the logistics sector today, such as handheld scanners, RFID tags, Wi-Fi phones, and automatic pick and place robots, are entirely dependent on the presence of a reliable WLAN infrastructure.

However, implementing a reliable, effective WLAN in a logistics environment is a very difficult task for traditional WLAN technologies. The presence of large metal surfaces in the ceiling and walls of the logistics center, high shelves filled with changing inventory, moving vehicles, and large distances, create a very challenging RF environment. Furthermore, the inherent mobility of clients makes additional performance demands on the WLAN.
