Is Your Wireless Network Industrial Strength?

After years of focusing heavily on corporate office and branch WLANs, many organizations need to deploy advanced mobility tools beyond the carpeted space. However, industrial and non-industrial facilities have different wireless needs.

Planning and implementation are no longer as simple as asking how many square feet you have-- the type of materials used in constructing your building and calculating how many access points you'll need.
