Zebra Brings Modern Wi-Fi to Moscow’s Gorky Park

Posted March 23, 2016

Motorola AP 6562 Access PointMoscow’s Gorky Park has recently deployed a wireless network solution from Zebra to enable thousands of visitors to the park to simultaneously access wireless connectivity for a first-class visitor experience. The new Wi-Fi infrastructure replaces a legacy network which was failing to meet the latest requirements across the parterre section of the Park and cope with bring-your-own-device (BYOD) demand. The new wireless network provides robust security and delivers reliable, seamless coverage of the 68.9 hectare park.

Utilizing AP6562 access points across outdoor and indoor locations in the park, Zebra WiNG architecture was installed to provide a quality Wi-Fi service based on the number of mobile clients in different areas across the park. The design support for thousands of mobile devices allows visitors to use enterprise-grade Wi-Fi at an almost unlimited speed in both 2.4 and 5 GHz bands through a distributed WiNG architecture which prevents bottlenecks or connection losses. Visitors experience seamless high-speed Wi-Fi roaming on a secure network that protects their devices and the entire network from hacking. As a result, visitors to the Gorky Park can use a variety of online resources and social media as well as high-bandwidth applications like YouTube and Skype with confidence.

Wireless Access a Top Priority for Hotel Guests

Posted June 3, 2013

Wireless access is the top customer demand of hotel guests in their rooms and throughout the hotel properties, according to a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Motorola in April 2013. This survey includes responses from 500 North American hotel guests, including business and recreational travelers.

The results are very indicative of a common desire for wireless connectivity by the vast majority of hotel guests. 90% of guest wanted Wi-Fi as an amenity among both business and recreational travelers. Likewise, over 90% of the guests wanted Wi-Fi access in their hotel rooms and not just in common areas and 40% of business travelers would not stay at a hotel without any internet access.

It is fairly obvious that wireless internet connectivity has become a key concern for travelers and will be a key differentiator for hotel properties. Being able to provide comprehensive and easy to access wireless connectivity to guests is now becoming a default standard in the hotel experience.

Posted February 21, 2013

VDC Research, a leading Auto-ID and Barcode research firm, is hosting a webinar on February 26th on the benefits and impact of using barcodes within the ever expanding use of mobile to mobile communications. As more business move away from fixed to mobile computing solutions,  manufacturers of barcode scanning and printing solutions have the potential to be at the forefront of this ongoing M2M evolution.

The 45 minute webinar will cover:

  • The measurable benefits of incorporating barcoding into enterprise operations as companies invest in resources to build out their M2M connectivity and communications platform in support of applications throughout the extended supply chain.
  • The impact that the changing nature of barcodes is having on how enterprises connect and communicate with their customers via smart devices – both professional and consumer-grade.
  • The role that barcodes play in triggering seamless communication across channels, networks and organizational boundaries.
  • How barcoding with M2M helps companies leverage actionable business intelligence and analytics across diverse vertical markets and installation environments.
  • Why M2M and IoT (Internet of Things) should be an integral part of barcode technology vendors’ strategic and operational objectives and how they can get there before it is too late.

The Importance of Enhanced Security and Encryption Protocols for Wireless Hardware

Posted September 17, 2012

In the storefront, at the office, throughout the warehouse, and on the road, wireless technology is a critical tool for conducting and improving business. Yet, despite its ubiquitous presence in business, we still read, almost daily, about hackers breaking into large network databases—heightening concerns about identity theft and credit card fraud. Security risks associated with wireless networks have forced businesses to comply with new, more stringent regulations for network security and data encryption. This document outlines the risks your wireless network faces and summarizes current state-of-the-art wireless hardware security systems. It also highlights critical factors to consider when selecting hardware partners to protect your future investment in wireless technology.

The Business Case for Wireless

The use of 802.11 wireless devices has been a driving force in the advance of worker efficiency. It has also brought higher levels of service to retail and commercial customers alike. The unassailable benefits of wireless devices are driving the growth of 802.11 technology. According to the Wi-Fi Alliance, chipsets sold on an annual basis to support wireless technology will grow to one billion units by 2012 (Ref. ABI Research). Clearly, companies that ignore the value of wireless technology will be left behind as their competitors benefit from its many advantages. However, the use of wireless technology is not without risks, and astute companies will take measures to mitigate these risks before wholly embracing wireless devices.

Choosing the Right Connectivity

Posted June 7, 2012

”Always connected” was a phrase without meaning 20 years ago; today, being always connected is a necessity. Enterprises of every type know they need employees with more mobility – and more connectedness – than ever to grow their businesses and remain competitive. But which type of wireless technology to use is difficult to determine. This paper examines the wireless options for mobile computer connectivity and takes a close look at some nontraditional choices that can save you money while still delivering improved productivity.

Communicating within four walls usually relies on 802.11a/b/g/n (also called Wi-Fi or WLAN for wireless local-area networks). Going outside the four walls requires other technology, typically wireless widearea networks (WWAN) or satellite. Each has strengths and weaknesses.
