Warehouse Wireless

Introducing Barcoding

Project Brief

Big Jig Toys are a very well established toy manufacturing and wholesaler firm based in Kent with a large warehouse facility over multiple buildings.

Big Jig had already started the rollout of their new wireless LAN for the warehouse and building links, however due to unforeseen circumstances they were unable to complete the project. Sam the Operations Director called MPR IT and asked if we would take on the project and carry out the remainder of the work to get their needed wireless up and running ASAP!

Project Solution

MPR IT were more than happy to provide assistance, Big Jig had elected to use Ubiquity Wireless Hardware and switches, which we have vast experience with along with warehouse wireless installations.

Some of the difficulties we faced on this project were that the main warehouse is made up of several buildings combined, which also has dense ceiling height racking throughout. Materials stored are mostly high density hardwood toys, which makes RF signal propagation difficult, careful planning and deployment was therefore essential for full coverage.

Cabling work was required along with physical installation of the hardware, configuration and testing.

In total we rolled out a Wireless Point to Point bridge and 14 Access Points to the warehouse.
