Wi-Fi Solutions That Can Handle Your Construction Jobsite

Fully connecting a jobsite will enhance productivity, profitability, and safety on the jobsite. Due to the increase in digital dependency in the construction field, there is an unmet need for reliable connectivity and asset management across the jobsite. Sharing data has become more necessary for contractors, yet limited connectivity options exist.

In the coming months, DEWALT will launch a fully connected system, including a Wi-Fi mesh network and later an IoT (Internet of Things) platform. The Wi-Fi mesh technology provides a key solution with its ruggedized access points built to withstand the harsh and variable conditions of a construction jobsite. It enables contractors to collaborate in realtime across large-scale jobsites and to easily access critical site information such as prints, schedules, budgets, and RFIs (requests for information).

The key here is fostering growth in both the building and construction industries, which are so vital to local and global economies. Thus, by helping contractors and trades better leverage technology, DEWALT will be able to provide solutions for gathering in-depth jobsite data for better decision-making, which ultimately enhances productivity and safety.

The Wi-Fi solution is the foundation of an entire end-to-end solution. DEWALT will also offer an IoT platform, enabling contractors to understand the location and utilization of assets and data on site.

This is just one example of total asset management. This type of technology will become part of a larger digital platform, providing critical data to inform decision-making.

These types of solutions will connect the jobsite in a revolutionary way, allowing contractors to improve efficiency, profitability, and safety through unparalleled connectivity, insights, and asset optimization.
