The National Fire Fighting Mfg.

Some of their better known projects are the Dubai World Central International Airport, Burj Khalifah, Palm Jumeriah – the world’s largest man-made island, and the Parish Sorbonne University etc.
NAFFCO has been aggressively expanding offices and manufacturing facilities across the city of Dubai. NAFFCO management decided to interconnect its satellite facilities with its head office, however due to the relatively long distances between facilities, wire based connectivity was not feasible. MISSAN Computers, a pioneer service provider for a wide array of business needs ranging from wireless, voice & telephony, to business continuity & disaster recovery and CCTV, stepped in to connect the different offices and facilities.
NAFFCO selected Proxim’s high performance Tsunami® QB point to point solutions to connect its offices within the city. With the head office as the central aggregation point, four point to point connections were deployed to the old office, warehouse (project Store), pipe factory, and fire trucks factory. Two more point to point links were placed for CCTVs and a connection between the old office and brass light as shown above.
“When NAFFCO approached us for a reliable and cost-efficient solution. We evaluated a couple of wireless solution providers but only the Tsunami® gave us the needed performance over the distances.” – Sushil Warrier, Business Development Manager, MISSAN IT Solutions & Services.
“Despite the dense wireless environment, the network performs with almost zero down time and from an installation perspective, the entire process was quick and hassle free.” – Abu Amir Mohammad General Manager, MISSAN IT Solutions & Services.
The network allows increased collaboration between departments and teams. NAFFCO is able to aggregate all its sales, marketing, logistics and production information to its central database in the head office. The IT team runs enterprise resource planning applications on its new network that includes heavy applications such as CAD/CAM, VoIP for free intra-office calls. The network also supports the BYOD wave where employees use their personal phones and tablets to work.
