Problems solved

I can't get good coverage using Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi access points on high ceilings are unable to provide sufficient indoor and outdoor coverage since the area is too large

My current solution does not provide reliable performance

Despite adding more Wi-Fi APs and tweaking network parameters, my employees are still frustrated about lagging applications and use case bugs, even in areas of coverage.

Mobility is a problem. Wi-Fi handover cannot keep up with my mobile asset (AMRs, forklift trucks, etc) connectivity needs.

Wi-Fi is unable to support mobility, which leads to latency peaks when handing over from one access point to another.

I need to connect more workers, machines and other assets to Wi-Fi to enable new use cases but I'm worried it won't support the increased load

My Wi-Fi network is overloaded and adding more access points or new channels will only degrade performance given the increased interference that it will create.

How MPW works

The MPW solution is comprised of mandatory and optional components. Mandatory components include a selection of indoor/outdoor 4.9/LTE & 5G radio portfolio, the Compact Mobility Unit which implements 4G/5G core network and IP transport to interconnect the components. Optional components include Network management (MantaRay NM), Group Communication (GC), Enterprise Voice Core (EVC) and MX Industrial Edge (MXIE), all of which you can easily deploy for maximum benefit to digitalize your enterprise .

Customer success stories

Use case: Finland’s Posiva was the first company in the world to build a safe disposal facility for spent nuclear fuel. Its latest process innovation involves transporting waste through underground tunnels with remote-controlled vehicles and autonomous robots to keep human operators safe. That required a highly reliable network that could function nearly half a kilometer below the surface of the Earth.

Use case: Brazilian electric power utility, Elektro, wanted to increase grid reliability and sought a robust solution to connect the necessary IoT devices to enable grid automation.



Use case: Sempra, a leading US developer of renewable energy, wanted to connect sensors to monitor data and the health of wind turbine pitch mechanisms and assembly
