Technical Warehousing & Distribution

Canwell Group is a pioneer in the Technical Warehousing sector. Whether your needs require an integrated solution coinciding with our Custom Build To Order program or just space for storage, Canwell Group has become the go-to partner for major RBOC, CLEC, and ILECs. This business unit was born from the idea that all major deployments require complex shipping and distribution schedules. Our spin on this age-old industry: if customers have to meet distribution and shipping needs, why not do it with a technical firm that understands the equipment and site requirements. Furthermore, because we know the equipment, we can package this offering with our EFI&T to cut down on mobilizations. We now offer standard freight or custom truck configurations depending on the solution, globally.

We have further enhanced our Distribution reach by adding algorithm-based software solutions to manage Just-In-Time (JIT) Supply-Chain programs. We have global warehouse hubs committed to our Standard of Excellence so that streamlined processes are adhered to across all borders. As our responsibilities have grown so has our investment to infrastructure and commitment to excellence.

Wireless LAN & MESH Networks

Wireless 802.11 networks are a valuable architecture for staying connected. They provide increased productivity and make the idea of an “anywhere office” possible. The key to building reliable and secure wireless networks is all in the design. Whether it is wireless LAN’s in an office building, or point-to-point bridges providing connectivity to remote sites, Canwell Group has the solution.

The foundation of every design is a solid site survey. Our engineers can perform physical site surveys as well as utilize predictive modeling in software. Based on these surveys, Canwell Group can design a reliable and secure network. With each challenge and requirement, Canwell Group can ensure your wireless networking needs are met. Planning on an RFID deployment? Want to design a network to support wireless voice? All of these requirements entail special consideration in wireless design, and Canwell Group has it covered.

Post survey our installation technicians will cable and install the solution. Each wireless deployment requires a follow up survey to ensure your network is working as designed. The survey is done to make certain that the network you requested is delivered as promised.

wireless LAN MESH networks

What we’ve found is that many wireless networks were installed without site surveys. In many cases, these networks work fine. In many other situations, users can find the networks unusable. Canwell Group can work with existing wireless networks to troubleshoot and resolve wireless issues. Environments and user requirements change. These changes can dramatically affect a wireless installation. Canwell Group can analyze existing networks and provide a solution.

Whatever the area, whatever the challenge, Canwell Group can get the signal there, and get your “anywhere office” up and running.
