The 802.11ac standard brings opportunities to deliver wireless networks to support the future needs of clients especially with the growing demands made on the Wi-Fi network from BOYD smartphones, tablets and laptops. Just like 802.11n, b and g before, 802.11ac promises even greater speeds. 802.11ac will achieve speeds of 1.3Gbs and potentially up to 6.9Gbs if all the new proposed techniques for increasing speed are adopted. This white paper discusses how 802.11ac is being designed to meet the demands of clients in the future, help you understand the technology, what is likely to happen in the transition from 802.11n to ac and how you can get ready to meet these new demands
Years of observing hundreds of network managers has revealed 7 habits that differentiate the effective network manager from the others. In this white paper, we will identify those 7 habits and discuss how these habits contribute to providing a well performing and reliable network. When problems do occur, these problems can be resolved in a timely manner, reducing the impact on the business, while at the same time, maintaining the credibility of the networking department.
Wi-Fi design guides and deployment best practices are plentiful – many of which can be helpful. The trouble is, if the Wi-Fi is already installed and running, then a design guide isn’t as useful as troubleshooting. This white paper looks at solutions a different way. The goal here is to look at five common problems that plague wireless installations and how to solve them while keeping the solutions straightforward. Each and every problem listed in this paper has a simple solution. What's more, all of the problems are common, and all of the solutions are in WLAN infrastructure settings.
Our increased dependence on complex information systems and ever-growing numbers of network endpoints, make the role of IT first responders a critical one. More work is being demanded of fewer, often less skilled, network and PC technicians. The sprawl of their networks across metros, regions, and even the globe adds to the difficulties of keeping systems running. This reliance on the connected world demands that frontline personnel keep networks running, whether troubleshooting an end user's problem, setting up new cubicles, or deploying new technology, such as VoIP, IP surveillance or Wi-Fi. Continuous advances in networking technologies—from health care to government, energy to education—depend on the ability to share and grow ever bigger ideas more and more quickly.
With the workforce more mobile than ever before, this whitepaper looks at how an "all-wireless workplace" approach can result in a 75% reduction in onboarding cost and 34% drop in infrastructure cost.
This case study looks at how Galaxy Macau were able to create a reliable, scalable network infrastructure to keep pace with expanding operations and provide their guests and customers with a seamless mobile experience.
This case study looks at how Cricket Tasmania was able to enhance guest experience, promote and develop cricket in Tasmania and cope with increasingly-concentrated demand on their network.
In this case study find out how Henry Ford Health System, a comprehensive and integrated health system organisation, is able to provide wall-to-wall Wi-Fi coverage to support more than 24,000 staff members and back over 3,500 medical devices on site.
Wi-Fi is fast becoming the preferred method to connect medical devices in hospitals. This whitepaper looks at the new FDA guidelines for on-boarding medical devices are and best practices for integrating wireless medical devices.
The rapid adoption of Wi-Fi by medical device manufacturers has meant means that the hospital IT departments now have to support more equpiment than ever before on their wireless local area networks. Find out in this whitepaper the risks associated with this transition and how you can prevent bottlenecks at Wi-Fi access points.
