Warehouse, Logistics, & Manufacturing

For high-performance networks in challenging locations.

Warehouses and manufacturing facilities are complex environments where leaders strive for new ways to improve safety, efficiency, and revenue. Warehouse leaders look to technology to drive these improvements – including temperature scanning at ingress/egress points to keep employees safe, plus smart inventory management and robots to improve efficiencies and revenue.

The success of these technologies relies on the same thing: a communication network that is rugged, reliable, and uninterrupted.

Ventev provides the solutions that power, protect, and connect warehouse and manufacturing networks. Ventev’s easy-to-install, industry-leading product lines provide a comprehensive ecosystem of wireless products to keep warehouse and manufacturing teams (and robots!) connected and the data flowing.

CHALLENGE:

Mitigating RF Unfriendly Environments

Warehouses are usually large open areas with high ceilings and lots of metal racks. This creates a nightmare scenario for deploying a wireless network. Large spaces with high ceilings mean using traditional mounting locations; it can be tough getting wireless to the ground where it is needed. And the RF-blocking metal racking inhibits wireless coverage, often resulting in poor connectivity.

Rely on Ventev’s innovative mounting ecosystem and antenna solutions to mitigate RF unfriendly environments.

Extending the network to the yard

Warehouse IT managers are turning to IoT to monitor assets and inventory. However, a robust wireless infrastructure is required for IoT to work effectively. This becomes a challenge when assets and stock are used or stored outside.

Connectivity in the far-reaching corners of the yard is difficult to achieve because of the power implications. In areas where there is no mains power trenching can be expensive and time-consuming.

Ventev works with warehouse network engineers to solve for this problem using Ventev power solutions. Ventev’s power lineup can provide mains and/or backup power in any environment. The turnkey, radio/switch agnostic solutions make extending the network outside in almost any environment easy.
