SKT, Construction of Smart Office Environment
SK T-Tower is the headquarters of SK Telecom. Inside the building, different types of mobile devices, such as laptops, smartphones and tablets, are in use, and with the increase in WLAN traffic and the use of quality multimedia data, the volume of wireless data sees an explosive growth. Users want limitless Internet access in various places in addition to designated areas.
Samsung ElectronicsOne of the world's largest semiconductor manufacturers, Samsung Electronics is also South Korea's top electronics company. It makes many kinds of consumer devices, semiconductors, and communications devices.
Construction & Buildings
SK Telecom is South Korea's largest wireless carrier, it leads the local market with 50.5% share as of 2008. SK Telecom employs more than 20,000 employees.
- CONNECTIVITY PROTOCOLS
In order to make changes in work environment, Samsung’s WLAN system has been installed in SK T-Tower to ensure stable WLAN service, and the gigabyte-speed AP device has allowed 802.11ac mobile devices to exert their highest performances. The “security AP” equipped with a security sensor makes it possible to offer a flawless WLAN security service without an additional security sensor. Hardware Components - Access Point: WEA 403i - AP Controller: WEC8500 - WLAN Manger: WEM - WIPS Server

- SOLUTION MATURITY
Emerging (technology has been on the market for > 2 years)
- OPERATIONAL IMPACT
Impact #1 [Data Management - Connectivity Stability]
Stable Internet access anywhere in the office with the optimum RF pattern using multi-antenna technology.
Impact #2 [Efficiency Improvement - Maintenance]
Ongoing application development and improvements are relatively quick and inexpensive to implement due to the system's flexibility.
- QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
The newly installed LAN showed 4-10 times better performance than the existing WLAN.
Samsung's solution saved cost for WLAN establishment more than 30% compared to a standalone WIPS and features a more powerful security function.
- USE CASES
Process Control & Optimization (PCO)Process Control and Optimization (PCO) is the discipline of adjusting a process to maintain or optimize a specified set of parameters without violating process constraints.The PCO market is being driven by rising demand for energy efficient production processes, safety and security concerns, and the development of IoT systems that can reliably predict process deviations.Fundamentally, there are three parameters that can be adjusted to affect optimal performance:- Equipment optimizationThe first step is to verify that the existing equipment is being used to its fullest advantage by examining operating data to identify equipment bottlenecks.- Operating proceduresOperating procedures may vary widely from person-to-person or from shift-to-shift. Automation of the plant can help significantly. But automation will be of no help if the operators take control and run the plant in manual.- Control optimizationIn a typical processing plant, such as a chemical plant or oil refinery, there are hundreds or even thousands of control loops. Each control loop is responsible for controlling one part of the process, such as maintaining a temperature, level, or flow. If the control loop is not properly designed and tuned, the process runs below its optimum. The process will be more expensive to operate, and equipment will wear out prematurely. For each control loop to run optimally, identification of sensor, valve, and tuning problems is important. It has been well documented that over 35% of control loops typically have problems. The process of continuously monitoring and optimizing the entire plant is sometimes called performance supervision.
