UAE’s National Catering Company (NCC) has deployed Zebra Technologies Corporation’s T5 Power Broadband solution to connect 234 residential caravans in the remote desert area of Al-Ruwais near Abu Dhabi.
The residents can improve their experience of uninterrupted connectivity for all their mobile devices with the high speed Wi-Fi offered by the new system using NCC’s current telephone wiring for fast, easy and cost effective upgrades.
Company said NCC previous wireless network was unreliable and provided limited or no connectivity to some of the caravans which required residents to find random points to access the network.
Meanwhile, the new wireless system enables residents to use uninterrupted high speed connectivity as well as provide the flexibility to meet future customer demand.
Also the new technology is cost effective and provides wireless access to residents over existing telephone lines.
The T5 Power Broadband system was integrated with the wireless networks used by Zebra’s self-scanning solution in the village’s retail outlets.
To deliver high speed coverage in the caravan existing wall jacks plates were replaced with TW 511 wall plate access points, company officials said.
NCC can also monitor network performance, identify issues and address problems before they impact service quality.
