As warehouses come under increasing pressure to move more products faster, legacy technologies like wireless networks may be holding operations back. Seven of 10 warehouses are experiencing continual problems with their wireless networks. As newer devices such as Android handheld devices are added to aging wireless networks, the ability to keep devices secure and connected becomes more challenging.
Network performance problems can erode the productivity that wireless connectivity was installed to improve. Downtime, troubleshooting and problem solving interrupt the flow of work and distract IT professionals from mission-critical tasks. And chronic issues can impact employee morale.
If your operation is experiencing wireless networking problems, a wireless site assessment can help discover network weaknesses and provide a plan for improvement. A reliable wireless system that supports current device technology will improve productivity, help you get the most from your wireless devices and provide an edge in securing your network.
As handheld device technology advances, the problems with your legacy wireless network are likely to increase. If your operation experiences any of these networking issues, it’s time to take control of productivity.
As technology advances, so do security threats. Legacy networks were not designed with business-critical mobility or IoT access in mind. So the security features of these systems haven’t kept pace with how they’re actually used in the field.
In the past, security was configured manually and seldom updated. Modern wireless networks are equipped with the necessary security features required to automatically discover and secure mobile devices according to policies, with tools to provide visibility into the entire mobile device pool. The cumbersome nature of the old manual methods simply can’t keep up with today’s threats. Today’s wireless networks have security built in with automated tools to help you secure hundreds or thousands of devices at scale.
