Cost-effective solutions to facilitate connectivity and enhance productivity, both at home and abroad have become a critical success factor for Australian businesses. But how to balance cost versus connectivity? This paper provides an insight into trends in international business communication, and how Australian businesses are attempting to manage this challenge.
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.
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.
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 proliferation of mobility and IoT putting unprecedented demand on today’s networks, delivering a robust network that can handle hundreds or even thousands of simultaneous connections has never been more important. While wired networks solved this problem decades ago with switches, it’s a wireless network challenge that still haunts IT teams. In their latest whitepaper, Aruba explores how the new wireless standard, 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6), is changing the game by delivering a Wi-Fi network that behaves less like an old bridged network and more like a high-speed modern switched network delivering an unparalleled user experience.
Four trends continue to drive changes in the field service market: an increased focus on workforce optimization, improved service quality levels, a move to more flexible software models (for example, software as a service or cloud), and wireless mobility. Read on.
While all Wi-Fi vendors understand the need for and are taking steps in the directions of a fully-distributed architecture, crossing the bridge from controller-based to controller-less takes a significant amount of time and effort because all system features and the user interface must be re-architected for a fully-distributed platform. We invite you to take the road less traveled: controller-less. Read on.
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.
Internet bandwidth is a finite and expensive resource; protect it from spammers, criminals, hackers, timewasters and employee misuse. Your company’s internet link is precious. Not only is it expensive and limited but it is a vital business tool. Yet our analysis shows that companies can lose around a quarter of their internet bandwidth to employee web misuse, streaming media and spam. Imagine if you had to give up a quarter of your office space for non-work activities; it’s inconceivable. But when it comes to internet bandwidth, most companies don’t even know about the loss, let alone take steps to prevent it.
Security of a wireless network still ranks as one of the largest concerns of IT professionals planning to roll out an enterprise wireless LAN. Many people erroneously believe that a wireless LAN is inherently insecure. This is largely due to security flaws in early Wi-Fi protocols like WEP (Wired Equivalency Protocol), more recent vulnerabilities found in TKIP and lack of awareness as to how to deploy a secure WLAN. This whitepaper will help the wireless network administrator or security manager to understand the security capabilities in a modern Wi-Fi solution, where they should be used and how the WLAN integrates with other security devices in the network.
