Isola Group, an electronics manufacturing company was plagued with problems of maintaining different wireless technologies along with security, connectivity and reliability issues in all its facilities.
Also Isola employees were not able to access barcode readers, and executives were faced with log-in problems in different locations. To overcome all these issues, Isola selected Motorola (News - Alert) PartnerEmpower platinum partner American barcode and RFID Inc. to implement a centralized, site-based management system.
Motorola Solutions deployed a corporate-wide wireless local area network (WLAN) for Isola, which according to Imran Akbar, vice president and general manager, enterprise networks and communications at Motorola Solutions can be purpose-built for the unique set of requirements the manufacturing sector has.
The industrial wireless solution from Motorola can easily adapt to changing RF conditions, types of devices and applications. It also optimizes bandwidth to augment production capabilities by providing seamless, wireless coverage.
This system provides new sensors and access points (AP) that are powered by Motorola’s WiNG 5 WLAN solution. Also Motorola’s AirDefense (News - Alert) services platform helps in managing, monitoring and protecting Isola’s WLAN environments in all its offices and factories in the U.S, Europe and Asia, said officials.
The WiNG 5 operating system helps users to create network awareness for the WLAN, so that the infrastructure in a wireless network can enhance the efficiency of wireless transmission.
Motorola’s WLAN solution has enabled Isola’s employees to increase the speed, security and reliability of file transfers. In addition, Motorola’s centralized controllers ensure comprehensive, hierarchical management to enhance security and site-survivability at the edge of the network, as well as optimize seamless roaming between sites.
The access points deployed by Motorola in the branch offices and headquarters of Isola can cost effectively support demanding applications like voice and video also.
