This gives users the ability to move around within the area and remain connected to the network. Through a gateway, a WLAN can also provide a connection to the wider Internet. With industrial WLAN compliant components in place, it's possible to connect devices that are in motion or static with little fuss and with minimal outlay. Providing fast, reliable connectivity, even in harsh environments, remote locations, or on the move.
