A key consideration when specifying the right solution was the variety of roles the network would be used for. Under one roof the solution would have to cope with the demands from the warehouse operators using barcode scanners, the IT team and sales and marketing teams all requiring connectivity for different uses. With this in mind, the Aerohive Networks controller-less WLAN solution was chosen. The controller-less architecture makes management of the wireless network far simpler without compromising on the security and performance. Scalability is also made easy allowing Casio to expand their network as and when they need to in relation to the number of users.
Nazim AliAhmed, Systems Manager at Casio stated –
“After some research and recommendations, we shortlisted the Aerohive and Ruckus solutions as the front runners to replace the existing Netgear solution. AIT were introduced as an Aerohive Elite Partner and they kindly offered us a site survey with a fully functioning trial. We were given the opportunity to also trial the Ruckus solution by another reseller. Both were very impressive and could have easily fit in with what we needed, but in the end decided the Aerohive controller-less architecture was the way forward. That coupled with initial dealings with AIT and their in depth knowledge of the solution, we were confident we had the right solution with the right people to be working with on this project.”
