About Midwest Service & Supply

Nearly 20 years ago, Midwest Service & Supply began as a service provider to retailers for reclamation needs by providing warehousing, software, and asset recovery solutions.  As the industry evolved, Midwest Services & Supply continued to expand its operations and organization. Today, we have flourished as one of the leading distributors in the liquidation and closeout industry, known for our assortments of brand name products and diversified product categories. With extensive capital in place, we are able to offer an array of services to our partners, including manufacturers, retailers, insurance companies, government agencies and secondary market vendors. Our core business today includes returns management, asset recovery, and distribution. At Midwest Services & Supply, what separates us from the competition is our capability, experience, and knowledge on how to maximize the value of distressed assets via the appropriate distribution channels.

Objective

Reliable WiFi coverage through out the facility with a focus on speed, stability and mobility. This use case requires users with mobile devices to be able to roam around the entire facility while maintaining solid, reliable connectivity. Scalability of the system with future growth in mind is also a critical aspect to protect the capital investment.

Challenge

The design requires accounting for floor to ceiling packaging containing a wide variety of contents which could interfere with coverage and throughput. The facility is a continuously changing environment where operators move quickly across the 250,000+ sf warehouse.

Solution

We used a combination of state-of-the-art equipment, careful planning, placement, and thorough testing to fine tune a solution that meets the strict standards of our customer’s use case. We built in additional headroom with growth and scalability in mind to help account for future expansion.

Ideal Coverage

With pallets stacked over 30 feet high and a constantly shifting landscape, coverage can be a challenge. In such a fluid environment, accounting for change is extremely important in order to fully blanket all areas of the facility in stable and fast WiFi. The modular system that we deployed provides us with the flexibility to adapt to the environment as it grows and changes.

Faster Throughput and Lower Latency

Connection stability and speed are tied directly to productivity in this facility. Any gaps in coverage or stability issues can cause delays which have a direct effect on the company’s bottom line. With a combination of fiber optics, network quality of service, and the latest in wireless technology we created a network that allows devices to communicate quickly and efficiently anywhere in the building.

Fully Encrypted

Cyber security is an essential consideration in the design of any network or information system. We use military grade encryption to ensure that data is secured. Coupling this with robust monitoring and management tools enables us to ensure that the network can grow and change to counter new threats as they emerge.
