Challenges
  • On its premises in Bad Salzuflen, in the north of Germany, POS TUNING was operating a local network based on ALE LAN and WLAN technology. In 2017, the company decided to upgrade its WLAN since existing components had reached the end of their lifecycle and were no longer able to offer adequate performance. 

 

  • In addition, more bandwidth was needed to achieve complete WLAN coverage of the entire site. Further requirements were the creation of guest WiFi access without additional software as well as a centralized, unified network management system for LAN and WLAN for greater efficiency and simplicity.
