Precision Global Manufacturer
Europlacer is an award-winning, global surface mount
technology (SMT) line solution provider, building
machines that put microchips onto circuit boards
within their manufacturing clients' production
processes. With over 50 years of proud heritage,
Europlacer offers a diverse range of solutions to
complex technical challenges in the SMT pick and
place marketplace. Group IT Manager Stuart Watts is
responsible for technology and infrastructure across
all Europlacer' sites worldwide, including two main
factories in the UK and France.
Mission Critical Connectivity
Europlacer relies on Wi-Fi in its office and factory
workplaces. Connectivity is required throughout the
factory, across a very large area. Stuart explains,
"Employees and our manufacturing partners use
laptops to manage production processes and
equipment, so there are many business-critical
devices connected at once. For security, we don't
allow our numerous site visitors onto our corporate
network, so we also need solid guest Wi-Fi.
"When it comes to value and useability, it's all about the
ease of management and the quality of the equipment. The
TP-Link build quality feels spot on and the value is
brilliant. I'm also impressed by the continual product
Group IT Manager, Europlacer
Seamless Continuous Coverage
"Most of our business infrastructure systems are
cloud-based. The people who operate them move
around the building and use their devices all over
the place. For example, they need to get files
from Share point and download installation files.
So the Wi-Fi signal must be seamless throughout
without any dead zones. We need to be able to
connect to our business systems consistently,
without any disruption as people move around the
Value for Money
Historically, Europlacer has used big-name brands to
provide Wi-Fi access points and switching. But
Stuart has become less happy with the products and
value in recent years."I feel these brands rely more on reputation than
quality. You can't do anything without a
subscription or license just to manage your own
Europlacer has a longstanding relationship with reseller
OpenCloud and Stuart sought a recommendation from his
trusted account manager Daniel Webb, who recommended
TP-Link’s Omada cloud-managed solution.
"Daniel at OpenCloud is a great advocate for TP-Link. On
his advice, I bought a couple of switches and a small
network for the UK factory - I fell in love with it! The
IT was so easy to use and manage-even the portal layout
was a breath of fresh air. When you buy these things,
you tend to have to go through loads of menus and almost
need to go on a course to learn the basic functionality.
With the Omada cloud management, we didn't need
Working in partnership with OpenCloud, Stuart
replaced all the switches in Europlacer’s head
office, and in the connected factory with
Omada-compatible ones. On Daniel Webb's further
recommendation, Stuart tried out a TP-Link access
"It was super-easy to manage-we plugged it in and
it worked right away. It was a no-brainer to
replace our existing access points across the
site. Instead of having individual access points
for guest and employee access, the Omada access
points provide both SSID from the same unit. This
cuts down on IT clutter and reduces hardware
costs. We now have ten access points covering the
whole of the UK office-they work brilliantly.”
Highly satisfied with the UK site's TP-Link
equipment, Stuart decided to roll it out to the
largest Europlacer factory, in France, to replace
"TP-Link did a remote site survey using the
floorplan we provided to tell us how many access
points we needed and where to place them. It was
very useful-we needed fewer units than we thought
and there are no dead spots now."
Stuart also required new CCTV devices to monitor equipment
and access in the UK offices and factory. Again, following
OpenCloud's recommendation, he selected TP-Link's VIGI
surveillance equipment and installed cameras and HD
recorders at the UK site.
"It all works as designed - I now intend to install the
same system in France. I've also replaced old power over
ethernet (PoE)switches with TP-Link ones to power our
VOIP phone system."
Stuart is very satisfied with all the TP-Link equipment.
"Having installed similar systems in the UK and France,
I have a clear view of both sites and complete remote
cloud management of the entire network. I aim to do the
same in our office in the US and continue rolling it out
to the rest of the sites globally. Having a consistent
setup streamlines the management for me and my team-we
only need to use the Omada portal. It's very
user-friendly and we've quickly got to know all its
"Our factories are huge open spaces. Making sure
that there's solid Wi-Fi throughout is a
challenge. The coverage recommendation from
TP-Link's remote survey was very helpful and
accurate. We have the Wi-Fi coverage we need
without interference to sensitive equipment in
some areas of the factory. We were also pleased to
find we didn't need extra access points in our
temperature-controlled test environments. The
remote survey correctly predicted that they would
be served effectively by nearby units."
Convenient App Management
Stuart and his team find the Omada cloud management
app especially useful.
"If we get any alerts, such as firmware updates
being needed, we can log in right away, wherever
we are and set them off without interruption. You
can keep an eye on the logs at any time if there
are any issues. Also, in the Omada portal, there's
a floorplan map. Some of my technical team don't
visit our French factory often-the map shows them
where a switch or item is, so it's easy to locate
the target device even though it's a huge building
on three floors."
"I work both from home and from the office and manage
Wi-Fi networks at all our sites. With the Omada Cloud
Management platform I can diagnose and fix almost anything
remotely and rapidly-it's been a game changer."
Being able to allocate permissions to different
staff is also useful in Europlacer's multi-site
"Our French staff have access to their local
facility, the same goes for the US team. It's good
security practice to confine their access to the
systems they need to work on."
Stuart intends to continue installing Omada across
Europlacer's global estate. He highlights the value
of the devices, the intuitive and feature-rich Cloud
management platform and the network performance as
"We’ve got a dedicated fibre connection to our
premises and average 950 Mbps both up and down.
With the Omada solution, we are easily getting
600-700 Mbps all over the building. Before
installing Omada we were struggling to get 300
Mbps. The whole team has been thoroughly
