Thirty years on and this family run landscaping supply company has grown from ½ acre to 3 hectares and employing over 30 staff.
With such large growth of the business coupled with the expansion of the site, the owners decided to build a dedicated Customer Service Centre approximately 700m from the main business office.
The client wanted continuation of the phone, internet and eftpos machines at the new site without duplication of resources. After receiving quotes on cables and various other combinations of data transfer, they decided on an Altai WiFi solution.
Normally a straightforward point to point solution, but due to the terrain and location of the remote site, there was no line of sight so it was handled as a point to multi-point solution.
1 x Altai A2ei – Dual band WiFi access point
The Altai A2-Ei WiFi Dual-band Business WiFi Access Point is designed to be used to provide 2.4 and 5 GHz dual-band dual-concurrent access coverage for both outdoor and indoor areas, and to increase system capacity, extend coverage, fill-in areas of low or blocked signals caused by obstructions.
2 x Altai A2n – WiFi access point bridge
The Altai A2 Business WiFi Access Point/Bridge is designed to be used to increase system capacity, extend coverage, fill-in areas of low or blocked signals caused by obstructions and bridge wirelessly to remote site.
Both products are capable of providing the highest possible data throughput and capacity that the 802.11n standards can offer.
Even with no direct line of site, the point to multi-point upload and back haul speeds were exceptional and robust – now operating at near full capacity and reliable in all weather conditions.
“We are discovering the full potential of the Altai product range in multiple applications. The entire range is easy to configure, manage and ultimately the best ‘bang for your buck’ available. Altai products are a great solution for small business’ that don’t want to go to the cost and effort of laying fibre optics or cables.” Geoff Carroll, RF Engineer, Powertec Telecommunications
