INNOVATION AND CONNECTIVITY THROUGH TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION
VEI Global have been working with one of largest retailers globally for several years, implementing some of their key infrastructure projects. VEI have Wi-Fi enabled all of their retail stores and helped transform their network to improve communication efficiency and increase store output and productivity.
The client required Wi-Fi coverage and network connectivity throughout their stores, offices and warehouses. The Wi-Fi solution deployed supports both their end-customers and their own retail staff.
VEI’s implementation team successfully completed installations for over 400 x customer sites across 20 x European countries and 3 x different continents globally, overcoming local language barriers, site set-up complexities and challenging project timelines.
DEFINING THE PROJECT NEEDS
VEI worked with our client partner to define site scope for connectivity. Working with “best practice” industry tools, including Ekahau and Airmagnet, VEI determined equipment needed for full site coverage. VEI completed predictive and feasibility surveys prior to installation. Once our solution was implemented, VEI completed back-end support including controller configuration and Wi-Fi access point on-boarding. In addition, VEI completes passive surveys to optimise performance at these sites, to ensure there is always 100% coverage throughout the client’s facility.
Some of the client’s sites include challenging warehouse environments, which requires our engineers to operate MEWP (Mobile Elevated Works Platforms) and certification to work at heights. VEI are looking forward to the next phase of deployment to Wi-Fi 6, as we continue to support the current infrastructure in the estate from our 24/7 Global Service Desk.
