Breaking Boundaries and Galloping Towards Superior Connectivity for Belgian Dressage Stable

As a prestigious dressage stable, everything seemed flawless except for the limitations imposed by their network infrastructure. Their objective is to provide a high-quality wireless network for visitors and support their students with recorded or live lessons. However, the existing network fell short of meeting expectations. They require a new network covering a 40,000 sqm area, delivering high speed and low latency to facilitate video meetings, security cameras, and calving alarm systems within the pregnant mares' barn. Initially, they installed a wireless router in the main building, but the WiFi signals only reached the private garden. Extending the network to the stables proved challenging due to the harsh conditions and long distance. After a thorough evaluation, they embraced Zyxel's Nebula cloud networking solution, equipped with access points and smart managed switches, to establish a reliable network. Zyxel's splash-proof NWA55AXE outdoor access points were mounted on the outside walls of the stables and riding arenas to bridge the two buildings, seamlessly connecting the two buildings. These access points were specifically designed to withstand extreme weather, enduring scorching summers and chilling winters alike. With WiFi 6 technology, users can enjoy fast and low-latency connectivity, ensuring an optimal wireless experience. The GS1915-8EP switches provide power to the three access points through Ethernet cables and effectively distribute the LAN networking as required. The new network guarantees stable and secure connectivity for both employees and visitors. With Nebula acting as their guiding star, network management has become effortless, liberating the organization from concerns of slow speeds and interruptions.

It's a huge advantage to have camera access from anywhere with internet, giving us peace of mind about the safety of our beloved horses. With the new network, we can train clients in other countries through video sessions on our tablets.
