Morgan Advanced Materials (LSE: MGAM) is a global manufacturer of specialist products, utilising carbon, advanced ceramics and composites for a broad range of markets including electronics, energy, healthcare, defence, petrochemical, security and transport.
A production environment of this kind creates a myriad of hurdles for any wireless network.
Huge blast kilns and heavy milling machines together with high energy power transformers and cabling create challenging conditions for radio signals to propagate creating an unreliable and patchy network.
For Morgan Advanced Ceramics this created real problems across the factory floor. The existing wireless coverage (used for monitoring machines) was all but unusable due to its poor reliability, forcing managers to rely on paper based systems to keep track.
Employees across multiple sites were also having issues gaining access to the network.
