Tele2’s wireless network connects Axfood’s warehouse in Sweden


Swedish telecommunications operator Tele2 is building and maintaining grocery company Axfood’s wireless network in the group’s new logistics facility.

The wireless network will connect robots, machines, and other IT systems inside the logistics centre, which is currently being built by procurement and logistics company Dagab.

Tele2 will connect the new warehouse primarily through wireless Wi-Fi that will control hand scanners, forklift computers, cameras, alarms, solar energy plants, and more.

Axfood’s new facility in Bålsta, outside Stockholm, Sweden, is the equivalent in size to 14 football fields with 126 000 square metres of floor space and a ceiling height of 30 metres.

Operations in Bålsta will supply grocery shops, e-commerce customers, and the service trade in the Mälardalen region and further north. The facility will be highly automated with three different temperature zones and hold frozen, chilled and temperate goods.

“Few things are more exciting right now than seeing how our customers find new and innovative ways to make their operations more effective when we give them the opportunity through faster and more secure connectivity,” says Tele2 BWB sales director Sofia Ahlmark Hyvärinen.

“The agreement with Tele2 means that we at Axfood can focus on further developing our operations at the same time as Tele2 contributes with its competencies in the secure, sustainable and stable operation of our network,” says Axfood head of IT operations Pär-Olof Skåntorp.

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.
