What are the benefits of industrial WLAN?

The way that we connect to the Internet has changed since the introduction of industrial WLAN. Businesses around the globe are noticing the advantages of choosing high-speed wireless data services that don't require investment in expensive infrastructure or temporary plant closures. With industrial WLAN compliant components in place, it's possible to connect devices that are in motion or static with little fuss and with minimal outlay. You'll enjoy fast, reliable connectivity, even in harsh environments, remote locations, or on the move.

When should you consider industrial WLAN?

When devices are moving, for example, on rail networks, industrial WLAN is the ideal solution. During refurbishment programmes, it may not be possible to add additional cables to provide inter-carriage connectivity. Neratec industrial WLAN products provide outstanding connectivity with fast data rates without the need for extra cabling. In effect, industrial WLAN simply means a set of connected devices. Device networks can be configured so that they communicate with each other directly or via a bridge or access point like the Neratec DT5422, for example. This adaptable access point combines exceptional manufacturing processes with an impressive range of features. It's based on the latest IEEE 802.11ac Wave2 technology and supports 4x4 multi-user MIMO. Performance is guaranteed over the DT5422's temperature range making it an excellent choice for rail transportation use.

What are the advantages of industrial WLAN for your customers?

With industrial WLAN connected via superior components like those you can see at, rail passengers are able to access the Internet quickly and with the minimum of fuss. Your staff also enjoy the advantages of secure carriage to carriage or train to ground communication. Furthermore, IWLAN connectivity enables you to inform customers of your services through an ever-changing selection of travel information or informative content.

Is industrial WLAN the same as Wi-Fi?

No, industrial WLAN differs from the Wi-Fi you use at home. It is designed to operate over approximately the same local area network range (around 100 meters with a data range of 600 M/bits over the 2.4-5GHz frequency range) and has many of the same features. However, for business, industrial WLAN is more reliable. That's because it requires careful planning and certain protocols are implemented to make real-time communication failsafe. Roaming, the ability to pass data between various access points, can be ten to 100 times faster than regular Wi-Fi, so industrial WLAN is often the best solution for transportation companies who need faster connections between moving devices.
