Supporting the Integration of New Technologies for Enterprise

Sol Distribution can provide a number of solutions for the Enterprise sector; in fact this is the sector that the company has traditionally sold its products into before expanding into other, more specialist markets. Enterprises today face a rapidly shifting technology landscape, where bringing your own device (BYOD) is expected by employees, whilst the strongest data security is expected by the board coming to terms with more stringent data regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

IT departments need to be flexible and innovative, and picking the best component or platform and being able to do so with complete freedom and flexibility is absolutely necessary if an enterprise is to remain competitive. With this in mind, Sol Distribution works with some of the most innovative vendors in today’s IT marketplace to provide our reseller partners products and services to differentiate their offering from the competition.

Wireless LAN Infrastructure

ALE can provide a wide variety of indoor and outdoor access points including Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) technologies support versatile deployments in any size network.

Controllerless Architecture

ALE WLAN products do not use controllers, they use a distributed intelligence model, where the tasks that would have been performed by the controller are distributed across the access points, and if one goes down, they can intelligently reroute traffic to maintain coverage. This architecture can support up to 4,000 APs in a single deployment (10,000 by the end of 2020)

Advantages of ALE WLAN Architecture:

  No single point of failure
  No Bottlenecks
  Simple deployment
  Improved security, resiliency, performance
  Simplified operations, low TCO

Asset Tracking

Asset tracking identifies the location of equipment or people, in real-time, using tags with GPS, BLE or RFID technology to broadcast their location. And you can track more than just the whereabouts of your assets.  You can learn about equipment usage patterns and locations – even when it’s not in use.

Asset tracking analytics provide information about how items are used, which departments use them the most, how often they get moved around the premises, how far they travel on a daily basis and even when the asset was last maintained. This information helps organisation optimise asset usage.
