A New Wi-Fi network infrastructure for warehouse logistics robotic system

More about Customers

Decathlon, a French chain of family sport hypermarkets — is actively upscaling its online store.

NISSA Engineering is a company focusing on rapidly growing, technologically and conceptually advanced robotics and automation areas. It was founded in 2018.


To provide high-speed uninterrupted operation of warehouse facilities, Decathlon Western Europe decided to implement first robotic system of online batching of orders.

NISSA Engineering provides Decathlon with services for development, simulation, deployment, integration with customer WMS system and maintenance of warehouse logistics robotic system.

One of the key components for successful operation of the robotic warehouse system is a reliable and high-performance IT infrastructure of a fulfillment center. Special focus is made on seamless Wi-Fi network that should meet the high requirements formulated by NISSA Engineering together with Geek+ who manufactures the robots.

LWCOM technical experts were involved to ensure compliance with the stringent standards for manufacturing and design of the data transfer wireless network infrastructure.


The key objective of the company’s radio engineers was to develop and implement a Wi-Fi network coverage architecture to provide uninterrupted and stable operation of robotics in all warehouse zones of Decathlon center.

The project scope included:

Predictive planning of wireless coverage with selection of best areas for access groups in the logistics center
Delivery of complete hardware set to the customer’s facility. The network was built using Ruckus R510 access groups set in Unleashed mode
Installation, startup and commissioning of the wireless network
Post-project radio survey of Wi-Fi network to validate the quality of access groups installation and correspondence of radio coverage parameters to the customer’s requirements


Simultaneously with design and deployment of Wi-Fi network, IT hardware was delivered and implemented in order to arrange the network infrastructure, data processing environment and protection of solutions package from external cyberthreats.

Warehouse data transfer network is built using Cisco Catalyst switches; the computation center is a cluster of HPE Proliant servers, while information security is provided with Cisco ASA firewalls.

Project Equipment

  • Ruckus R510 access groups
  • HPE Proliant servers
  • Cisco Catalyst 3650 switches
  • Cisco ASA 5506 firewalls


Cooperation between LWCOM and NISSA Engineering integrators resulted in a new high-performance fail-safe infrastructure of a warehouse logistics robotic system wireless network whose coverage parameters meet the specified manufacturer standards.

The companies continue cooperation to provide incident support.
