Asia Airfreight Terminal (AAT), a leading cargo handling company based out of Hong Kong International Airport, was facing challenges with its Wi-Fi network, which was critical for the functioning of its automated Material Handling System (MHS) within the warehouse. Any interference or lost signals could directly impact their operational efficiency. AAT also had separate networks for their office and CCTV cameras, which made the job of their data center challenging. The company was in search of a Wi-Fi network configuration that could streamline their networks and reduce its network management workload. AAT was already running on equipment from a competing vendor, and the new solution needed to prove its worth in scalability and reliability.

About The Customer
Asia Airfreight Terminal (AAT) is a leading cargo handling company based out of Hong Kong International Airport. The company handles cargo from the world’s leading airlines and prides itself on having state-of-the-art facilities and IT capabilities. Wi-Fi is mission-critical for AAT as they depend on it for the functioning of an automated Material Handling System (MHS) within the warehouse. The company also has separate networks for their office and CCTV cameras, which are managed by their data center. AAT was already running on equipment from a competing vendor and was in search of a Wi-Fi network configuration that could streamline their networks and reduce its network management workload.
AAT found the solution to their challenges with CommScope and its RUCKUS family of solutions. CommScope set up a six-month proof of concept (POC) using three RUCKUS T310 outdoor access points (APs) with Mesh technology. The Mesh technology offered a reliable configuration that overcame the cabling difficulties for the environment. Network traffic within a Mesh travels through wireless links to other APs until it reaches one directly connected to the wired network. This setup minimized interference and noise while optimizing network performance. Following the success of the POC, AAT deployed RUCKUS indoor and outdoor APs for their MHS. CommScope also demonstrated its capabilities in other networking areas, such as the office network and the CCTV system. They installed RUCKUS ICX 7150 switches to handle the office network traffic and showed that the current Wi-Fi Mesh configuration could handle CCTV system real-time feed without challenges.
