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

Insource Technology, the largest privately held IT integration company in Texas specializing in network infrastructure and ERP systems, has installed Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi to work with Intermec products in a number of leading warehouse and manufacturing companies such as:  StarPak, Polytex, Superbag, Exel Logistics, Tifco Industries, Utex Industries and MOGAS Industries.

"The combination of Intermec scanners and Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi has proven to be highly effective in streamlining our customers' warehouse operations," said David Black, president of Insource Technology Corporation. "Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi technology was a perfect match to help provide us with better, more reliable performance in our customers' loading dock areas and have made their overall operations definitely much smoother."

As logistics facilities deploy supply chain management technology from Intermec to further streamline and accelerate their operations, there is a growing need for strong wireless connectivity. In addition to traditional AIDC terminals and mobile computers, facilities are also deploying new technologies such as voice-prompted data collection and VoIP that require even better wireless performance.

"Intermec provides a broad range of rugged mobile solutions for warehouses, distribution centers and logistics operations," said Andy Stento, senior director of Channel Sales and Strategic Alliances, Intermec. "Ruckus provides excellent Wi-Fi infrastructure that excels in challenging RF environments like these. Together, Ruckus and Intermec enable high-performance, cost-effective warehouse supply chain management, which means hassle-free operations and low TCO."

Ruckus BeamFlex Technology is Key

Ruckus BeamFlex technology, the industry's most advanced adaptive Wi-Fi antenna implementation, combines a compact internal antenna array with expert control software to continuously optimize the connection for each connected client, bypassing interference and physical barriers. Highly sensitive antenna elements also deliver the industry's most powerful Wi-Fi receiving capabilities. This dramatically increases range and performance of the Wi-Fi network while automatically adapting to constantly changing RF environments like warehouses and DCs.

Another key capability is BeamFlex+. BeamFlex+ automatically adapts Wi-Fi signals to the changing orientation of handheld devices through the use of polarization diversity with maximal ratio combining (PD-MRC). This enables Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi access points to provide better reception for hard to hear clients and more consistent performance as clients constantly change orientation. For instance, an Intermec scanner may be held upright for some tasks, and laid flat on a table for others. Because they have an array of internal antennas, Ruckus APs are uniquely able to listen better as these devices change orientation, ensuring the best connection at all times.
