Commercial warehouse design and updating Sexpic chats
Directional antennas are made to focus RF into areas for coverage whereas Omni-directional antennas are designed to provide 360 degrees of coverage.
There are different wifi antennas and each is made for a specific purpose.
To reinforce the previous solution is another design issue.
When these computers, which have wireless cards installed in them, are installed on the vehicle they are sometimes placed inside the protective metal mesh cages surrounding the operator.In the case of directional antennas aimed in direct opposing locations a phenomenon referred to as “hidden node” would be created.This “hidden node” occurs when two clients in opposing directions connect to the same AP. Set the power to 50% and make small increments up and down to find a good balance of power and wifi coverage. This becomes an issue then when the client associates to that access point when there actually may be a closer one to them.Because most warehouse wifi networks were designed and deployed with access points using 2.4GHz spectrum the channel selection is limited.Because of the limited channel selection it is very easy to induce another issue called “co-channel interference”. Too many or too few access points Updated firmware will have bug fixes, newer standards and other enhancements that will help clients work better with access points and vice versa.The directional antenna would be a better choice aimed at the ground to create a cone of coverage and not a floating donut up in the air.The metal mesh cage blocks or severely inhibits RF performance.Extending the antennas to the outside of the cage will fix or greatly improve the RF functions.
