Nebula Makes Complex Deployments in 50,000-square-meter Italian Warehouse a Breeze

Boasting one of Italy’s leading distribution networks, Sogedim was used to fulfillment requests. But, with a disjointed network offering wireless coverage to only limited parts of its sprawling new logistics center, Sogedim turned to system integrator So.Roasi with a fulfillment request of its own. The company wanted to consolidate and expand its network to incorporate the center’s offices plus every square foot of its massive warehouse. That meant providing reliable, high-performance WiFi across 40,000 square meters of warehouse shelving and 10,000 square meters of open warehouse. Leveraging its expertise in complex, large-scale deployments, So.Roasi knew Zyxel’s equipment would be up to the challenge. The existing infrastructure was first expanded to ensure reliable coverage throughout the center, with the deployment of 90 WAX510D access points, featuring dual-optimized antennas. Next, two ATP500 ATP firewalls were used to enable VPN connections with other offices and the internet. Finally, 10 XGS1930-24HP smart-managed PoE switches were used to connect network cabinets across the site. With the new network now humming along, Sogedim says the difference is night-and-day, citing unprecedented efficiency and staff’s ability to manage the network comprehensively anytime, anywhere.

Zyxel’s equipment has delivered seamless WiFi coverage across 40,000 square meters of shelves and 10,000 square meters of open warehouse for the new headquarters in Mesero. And critical, it also ensures comprehensive network management via the cloud for the customer’s IT team, wherever they are.
