Expert Tips for Planning an Industrial Wireless Network

Wi-Fi is now present everywhere and people have become comfortable using it for just about any application. For example, many systems designers are choosing to move their industrial applications from wired Ethernet to wireless utilizing Wi-Fi. The advantages of moving to a wireless design are numerous. Wireless allows for client devices to be located in difficult to reach areas, and it saves on installation and wiring costs in remote locations. The benefit of not having to re-wire your plant infrastructure when relocating machines on the plant floor is yet another advantage.
