There are many great reasons to choose wireless local area networks (WLANs) for your warehouse(s). Time and time again, we’ve seen companies implement a wireless LAN for one function, such as logging incoming supplies on the receiving dock, to running wireless applications throughout their entire warehouse or group of warehouses.
Let’s take a look at the types of applications in warehouses that prove most useful, and which issues you should consider when deploying WLAN for these applications.
Start with Receiving
Most companies have some type of receiving function, no matter what industry they’re in. Manufacturers are shipped a never-ending flow of incoming components and raw materials that will eventually make up their final products, while retail stores must keep stock of the latest products and hospitals receive daily shipments of medical supplies. In all of these instances, companies must monitor incoming goods to update accounting records and inventory databases, alert any parties who need to know and initiate payment for all received items.
Wireless Bar Code Systems
Wireless bar code systems provide a number of benefits over paper-based systems in terms of receiving functions. As an item is unloaded from a vehicle, a warehouse clerk can perform the following actions:
- The clerk scans the item’s bar code, which identifies the part number.
- The bar code data is transmitted over the wireless network to a database. This database marks the item as received and updates other applicable databases.
- The bar code system, through a handheld scanner/printer, prints important data on a label that the clerk can attach to the item. Using a wireless scanner for this function increases the mobility of users and enables them to perform the receiving actions directly after unloading.

Honeywell’s new wearable solution for the rugged enterprise class Dolphin 70e mobile device provides a hands-free computing solution. Hands-free computing opens up opportunities to increase efficiency and reduce labor costs throughout a company. Small parts picking, case picking, large package handling, sortation, and truck loading are just a few of the areas that can benefit using a hands-free computing solution. The wearable solution for the Dolphin 70e mobile device provides a new approach to enabling hands-free operations to help organizations streamline operations and improve productivity, without the cost and hassle of reengineering existing processes.
The Honeywell Dolphin 70e Wearable Solution is designed to wear for extended periods of time and be easily shared between workers. With its large display, flexible touch screen keypads, WEH 6.5 architecture, and support for tethered and BT ring scanners- the Wearable Solution is ideally suited to give workers the freedom of movement to maximize workflow productivity.
Several software enhancements have been incorporated to make use as a wearable device even more user friendly. Pairing the BT ring scanners is now as easy as scanning a single barcode. APIs are available that allow voice applications to optimize voice recognition performance and the user’s audio experience. An integrated keyboard designer is included that allows creation of popup keypads that are appropriate for the operation at hand. The appropriate keypad can be invoked by the user using hot keys, by a local application using an API, or by a Telnet host using special commands to the terminal emulation SW. This provides for a context-sensitive keypad: the users see only the keys they need when they need them.
