Additional capabilities such as client load balancing, airtime fairness, band steering, and per user rate limiting ensure hundreds of users can be served by each access point while delivering reliable and fast Wi-Fi connectivity

In-Store Applications

Retailers are increasingly leveraging technology to enhance the In-store experience and improve their operating efficiencies.

Examples include:

  • Digital signage applications showing product and store promotions
  • IP video for security or for detailed customer traffic analysis
  • Mobile PoS applications being run from smartphones and tablets. In addition to eliminating lines and enabling store staff to spend more time with customers, this frees up additional space for merchandise and other displays.
  • VoWLAN to enable store associates to stay connected even while on the floor, improving customer service and productivity
  • Inventory tracking using bar-code scanners
