For automated material handling and logistics applications, the past couple of years have shown more than ever that reliable wireless communications are a must for busy facilities teeming with moving equipment. These factors have meant that items must move through material handling and logistics facilities as quickly as possible – and reliable connectivity is how many companies are ensuring this quick movement. Wireless technology can also enable reliable communications for logistics mainstays such as automated storage and retrieval systems and conveyance systems. However, Wi-Fi remains a reliable communications avenue for automated material handling applications – and its latest version, Wi-Fi 6, has advantages for industrial applications. Both of these options provide the reliable wireless connectivity that automated material handling applications need.
