Integrating Voice and WLAN
Many data collection devices include Voice-over IP (VoIP) technology in order allow workers to communicate with others both on and outside of the network. However, since workers are often mobile, it is important to make sure complete coverage throughout the facility. Because of this, it is necessary to make sure your existing WLAN can support voice capabilities so that the quality of the call is maintained throughout the warehouse.
802.11 is commonly used in the world of wireless, however, it was not originally designed for devices with limited battery capacity, thus impacting the use for wireless VoIP clients, as they have limited battery capacity.
