AmericasMart Atlanta, the nation’s largest wholesale marketplace, was running a legacy HPE wireless network supporting up to 40,000 concurrent connections and 35,000 users in a 7.2 million square foot facility. AmericasMart wanted to replace its aging wireless infrastructure with a new solution that would provide traffic data analysis to improve visitor navigation and enhance the customer user experience. AmericasMart was also interested in better serving its customers by providing enhanced WLAN connectivity and performance via a pay-for-enhanced-access model.
Working in concert with HPE Aruba, our parent company Driven Technologies provided a migration plan that included the design, installation and configuration of more than 1,000 wireless access points and 3,000+ beacons in a controller-based architecture (the largest beacon deployment in the world). Driven Technologies and Aruba proposed a solution utilizing Meridian Beacon technology to provide navigation services, ArubaOS 8.0, Clearpass for Network Access Control and Airwave for advanced reporting.
