To have a warehouse wireless survey – or not?

To have a warehouse wireless survey – or not?b2ap3_thumbnail_AP650.jpg

Providing large facilities such as a warehouse with wireless is not a straight forward task and without planning can end up with inadequate coverage and suffer from low performance. To prevent this from happening you can commission a Research Frequency (RF) site survey. This enables an appropriate wireless network to be designed that will deliver the coverage, data rates, roaming capabilities, resilience and network capacity you require.

The Perils of Discounting

With the Christmas season upon us and a constant wave of discounts being offered both on line and in the high street, I have been left surprised by some of the promotions and offers that big, traditional business have run through December.

For many years the RFID technology was trying to get traction. The truth is that it has its own market place that the barcode is not suited to in the same way that barcode technology has market places that RFID cannot work. Yes there are areas in the middle where both can and do work, in these environments the “right” choice is often as much a decision of the heart and not the head, giving the IT department an interesting project to work with.

So two 11 hour flights and an 8 hour time difference experienced to visit the biggest Sage North America event ever staged, was it worth it – yes absolutely.

Whilst the location of Las Vegas for this year’s summit was a “love or hate” it town, the event itself was superbly organised, with diverse and wide ranging content.

Each of the four days started with a Keynote Speech where the goal was to inspire and let the audience “Grow from Here” that presented a different view of business and politics which I would suggest that everyone in the audience took something from.
