Case Study: Altai Speeds Up Operation for CONCOR in India
Container Corporation of India Ltd. (CONCOR) is the market leader in the container ports and logistics industries in India. To cope with the quick development and on-going expansion of the company, CONCOR decided to deploy a Radio Data Terminals supported by a reliable wireless network. CONCOR required a Wi-Fi network to accurately manage the data from the field and validate from the database of their Inland Container Depots (ICD). The Wi-Fi would also need to support a large number of devices sharing the network.
Altai Wi-Fi Coverage Area
The coverage area includes the stack area, rail side, yards, administrative building, and warehouses. Thousands of containers metal containers, densely stacked five containers, surround the environment. Metal is an obstacle for a Wi-Fi signal to penetrate.
Altai Wi-Fi Products Used
The Wi-Fi Solution
Standard Wi-Fi products in the market could not meet CONCOR’s challenging requirements. However, with patented smart antenna technology, Altai’s Wi-Fi base-station was able to provide coverage to the large outdoor area with stable and robust signal strength.
Altai’s solution has enabled CONCOR to remotely manage their multiple Inland Container Depots (ICD) locations. With Altai Super Wi-Fi, CONCOR’s ICD management team can now easily locate a container and obtain data in minutes. CONCOR is satisfied with Altai’s solution, which doesn’t not only satisfy their requirements but also significantly improves operational efficiencies.
Altai Product Profile
Altai A8n Base Station
Altai’s A8n Super Wi-Fi base station is an advanced 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi solution. With its 8×8 MIMO and Altai’s smart antenna technology, it is designed for broadest coverage range and best non-line–of-sight (NLOS) performance.
Operating concurrently in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, the Super Wi-Fi A8n base station can provide access connectivity in both bands as well as long-range (up to 30 kilometres) backhauling in the 5GHz band.
Altai A2e(ac) Access Point
The A2e 5 GHz radio provides two external antenna ports. This allows the user to choose the exact antenna gain they require for a particular application. It also enables users to select the type of antenna they need for point-to-point or point-to-multi-point applications.
Altai Access Controller
With a central processor that employs up to four cores, each with two threads, the AltaiGate 200 is like having a total of 8 virtual CPUs. Its powerful hardware allows it to manage up to 200 Altai Super Wi-Fi access points and 4,000 client devices from a single location. An alternative to the Altai Access Controller is AltaiCare, a cloud-based management platform.
