WiFi plays an integral role in the day to day operations of most modern warehouses. And, as such always needs to be relied on to function properly. Warehouse and distribution environments can be complex and demanding. When it comes to installing a warehouse WiFi solution, it needs to fit every requirement that you set. The warehouse wireless signal strength needs to be robust and the coverage needs to be wide enough, but you can’t overlap signals or else it can cause interference.
With so many variables and considerations to keep in mind, it’s essential that you choose warehouse wireless specialists to assist with your warehouse networking requirements. Our expertise in warehouse wireless installations will ensure that your productivity and connectivity is maximised, ensuring the highest level of efficiency from your warehouse and workforce.
The Do’s & Don’ts of WiFi Design
WHY DO I NEED WIFI IN MY WAREHOUSE?
Benefits of Warehouse WiFi
Warehouses are busy environments and therefore companies are utilising technology more and more to streamline processes and increase efficiency, which requires a reliable and robust warehouse wireless network.
Warehouse WiFi improves productivity in the following ways:
- Improved resource utilisation
- Organised inventory management
- Replace slow and error-prone paper systems
- Real-time order fulfilment updates
- Handheld devices for all warehouse employees
- Improved visualisation of resources and analytics
- Adapt to fast-paced environments that require precision and flexibility
- Increase in accuracy, efficiency and productivity of workforce, ultimately reducing overall costs of operation
These are just a few of the major advantages you can expect to see when you install a secure and robust warehouse wireless solution.
Warehouse WiFi Site Survey
Wireless site surveys are critical when designing and planning a new warehouse WiFi network as warehouse and logistics environments are complex and challenging. Warehouses hold large quantities of stock and vast amount of racking, as well as moving forklift trucks and machinery which can all cause interference, therefore it is vital that a survey is carried out when investing in a new warehouse wireless network. Redway Networks specialist team of engineers have a wealth of experience in installing warehouse wireless and recognise the importance of consistent coverage within a supply chain environment. The potential challenges of metal racking and the changing environment of a warehouse will be carefully considered when designing the WiFi network and our team are very familiar with these complex settings.
As well as surveying for new or upgrading warehouse wireless networks, we are highly skilled in troubleshooting areas of WiFi loss within warehouse environments. As highlighted, Warehouse WiFi is a particularly complex area and our expert team have a wealth of experience of diagnosing and solving issues within these operations.

Warehouse Wireless Design and Planning
Not only do we specialise in warehouse WiFi solutions, we also have a wealth of experience in designing and planning wireless networks across a range of logistics and supply chain operations. Once our Ekahau certified engineers have carried out a site survey across your operation, they will then determine the optimal placement of access points to provide maximum coverage and minimal overlap, taking the structure into careful consideration. Our WLAN engineers will then produce a detailed design with recommendations of hardware requirements for maximum warehouse wireless coverage. We will then arrange for our team to attend your site to carry out the installation, working around your operation to minimise any disruption. If required, we’ll provide a post-installation survey and examination of the warehouse WiFi solution to ensure it’s working at optimal efficiency.
