LOGISTICS FAQs

What infrastructure is required to cover a large warehouse?

A large distribution center typically requires a radio repeater system connected to an antenna or multiple antennas. A properly designed repeater system will ensure reliable radio coverage while minimizing infrastructure costs.

Will the radios work outside? Can we communicate with yard trucks and the guard shack?

Yes, repeater systems can be designed to provide reliable in-building coverage and outside coverage. Advanced Wireless Communications typically designs systems to provide “fence-to-fence” radio coverage.

What solutions are available for forklifts and MHEs?

Advanced Wireless Communications recommends installing a mobile radio into forklifts and MHEs. The mounted radio provides the user with easy access to the radio and speaker mic. The radio is powered by the electrical system of the forklift.

Can I connect multiple buildings?

Yes, it is possible to link radio systems in multiple buildings. These linked radio systems allow radio users to communicate between geographically separated locations.

Why do I need an FCC license?

The Federal Communications Commission regulates the use of radio frequencies and therefore radio which requires an FCC Radio License. A radio license is a benefit that protects the radio system from unauthorized users. A radio license requires an affordable one-time fee and provides 10 years of radio use. Advanced Wireless Communications handles FCC licensing on behalf of our customers.

Do radios work in freezer sections?

Yes. Insulated refrigerator/freezer sections can pose challenges for reliable radio coverage. Advanced Wireless Communications has extensive experience in providing coverage in cold chain environments.

Battery Life? Will the radios last for a full shift?

Battery life is affected by multiple factors particularly usage – that is, the amount of time the radio is transmitting or receiving. Generally speaking, with average usage, a radio will provide 10 to 12 hours of “floor time” use.

What is ERRS?

ERRS stands for Emergency Responder Radio System. An ERRS is designed to maintain radio communications and the safety of firefighters while inside buildings. Most states and municipalities require the building owners to provide signal boosting equipment to achieve reliable radio coverage.
