NETWORKS MAPPING AND ANALYSIS IMPROVE WI-FI PERFORMANCE
In Souza Cruz in Uberlândia
WIRELESS SITE SURVEY
THE CONNECTION IMPROVEMENTS
In the search for improvements in the wireless network connection, not always expanding the infrastructure is the best solution. In the production Souza Cruz unit in Uberlândia (MG) – which adds more than 16 thousand m² -, operating with two parallel structures and in simultaneous operation, for example, meant to generate oscillations in the signal transmission of its Wireless connection. In order to solve the flaws and improve the network, the company relied on Nap IT consulting.
The first step was to apply the WLAN Assessment service and map the entire technological environment. The unit had received the wireless network integration in the quality area for the barcode readers use, which had lowered considerably the connection performance levels. Next, Nap IT also conducted the Wireless Site Survey to measure the Wi-Fi signal delivery and the ability to cover the environment.
Case Uberlândia Souza Cruz
Wireless Site Survey
Identify excess access points generating access interferences to the main systems of Souza Cruz
GENERAL CORPORATE NETWORK
The analysis was aimed at observing the installed networks real conditions and aligning the technologies to arrive at a signal complete range.
The parameters presented by the Wireless Site Survey showed that the installed Access Points excess was generating interferences and making the network communication difficult. The unit had seven Access Points, four integrated to the quality network and three older equipment, dedicated to the general corporate network.
According to Nap IT Network Engineer, Gustavo Emerim, the proposal was to take the new network installed advantage with more modern and robust equipment, to transmit the two necessary networks concomitantly.
This way, in addition to improving the network performance available to employees, the solution applied avoided high investments in technology upgrades, with direct benefits to the unit strategic planning.
For Souza Cruz IT manager, Márcio Neves, the solutions applied by Nap IT demonstrated the need to optimally design the technologies to the environment so that they act in their best performance.
