A Wireless Technology Tutorial

Wireless networks allow untethered communication between devices utilizing radio frequencies to transmit and receive data over the air. This enables true business mobility, giving businesses the ability to interact with customers, connect employees, and obtain real-time information anywhere there is a signal. A well-operating wireless network combined with mobile handheld devices empower the capture of inventory and asset transactions at the precise moments they occur, increasing productivity while lowering operating costs.

Examples of Wireless Technology

  • Wireless LANs (802.11a/b/g)
  • Bluetooth, the current standard for short-range, point-to-multipoint communications
  • GPRS/CDMA, combining a cellular phone network
  • RTLS, employing Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum technology to determine the location of transmitting beacons

Key Benefits of Implementing Wireless Technology

  • Elimination of complex construction, infrastructure, and cabling requirement
  • Instant and untethered data capture and continuous access to shared information
  • Easy wireless setup for teleconferencing and changing workspaces
  • Network reach to areas that cannot be wired
  • Scalability with quick and simple corporate expansion by adding additional access points

Wireless Technology Is the Ideal Solution for Complex Environments

  • Preparation and production floors
  • Warehouse and cold storage
  • Outdoor and freezer applications
  • Receiving and shipping area
  • Bridging between buildings

Wireless technologies will continue to evolve and offer a higher standard of life by making us more mobile and increasing our ability to interact with each other, thus removing the distance barrier by giving truly untethered access to business information when it’s needed most.
