Intermec And Ruckus Team To Deliver Wi-Fi Enabled Rugged Mobile Solutions To Optimize Performance And Reliability In The Distribution Center

Stocks in this article: INRKUS

SUNNYVALE, Calif. and EVERETT, Wash., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Ruckus Wireless, Inc. (NYSE: RKUS) announced today a partnership with Intermec, Inc. (NYSE: IN) to deliver new wireless distribution systems that bring together best-in-class wireless scanning and Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi technologies to improve performance and streamline workflow within distribution center (DC) and manufacturing operations.

Linking Intermec solutions to backend warehouse management and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems requires consistent, reliable wireless connectivity. Because warehouses, DCs and terminals are challenging radio frequency (RF) environments, with floor to ceiling steel racks and changing inventory levels, they often suffer from RF dead spots or poor signal coverage, leading to lost information, which in turn can create lower workforce morale and performance issues when additional inventory work is required on top of already stressful workloads. Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi technology provides a solution to these challenges.

Ruckus ZoneFlex access points (APs) leverage the company's patented BeamFlex technology to deliver reliable Wi-Fi performance, extended reach and automatic adaption to changes in the physical environment—items crucial for warehouses using Intermec technology for managing their supply chains. Warehouses, distribution centers, loading docks, marine terminals and other sites around the world with mission-critical mobility requirements and limited IT resources already use Ruckus products and technology to build more robust, adaptive and affordable wireless LAN (WLAN) environments.

Modern supply chains have increasingly higher customer service level requirements while reducing costs. Intermec delivers a complete lineup of rugged, reliable and versatile solutions for the distribution center. Its bar code scanners, rugged mobile computers and Vocollect voice solutions are deployed globally by leading warehouses, distribution centers, and other enterprises that rely on accurate and timely data to track, manage and move products.
