Glenmorangie is said to have “substantially” enhanced and extended its corporate Wi-Fi network following a connectivity project undertaken with enterprise IT specialist Systal Technology Solutions.
Owned by Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, Glenmorangie is the world-famous whisky distillery. It has its global headquarters in Edinburgh, with further offices and a bottling facility in nearby Livingston, West Lothian. Around 200 people work across the company’s various locations.
When the business was experiencing a range of connectivity and reliability issues with its wireless network, it consulted Systal, which has its head office just outside Glasgow. Its engineers carried out wireless measurements which mapped out a comprehensive picture of existing Wi-Fi performance and a framework for improvement.
They conducted a signal propagation review, created a new RF template, made changes to roaming and configuration settings, and installed new APs from Cisco’s Aironet 2700 Seriesto enable all users to connect to the network at similar speeds.
All this is said to have resulted in up to three times greater availability of 1.3Gbps rates across Glenmorangie’s Wi-Fi entire infrastructure, as well as a reduction in instances of latency.
It’s claimed the company’s warehouse team’s efficiency has now increased, and that members of staff in the head office are also experiencing improved Wi-Fi connectivity, enabling them to focus on both immediate tasks and longer-term business strategy without network disruption.
