(Original Workshop - Tuesday, July 16, 2013)
With the fast pace of mobility adoption by consumers, network usage has started to outrun the infrastructure of most enterprises’ wireless networks. Among the growing trends that weigh heavily on the minds of most network IT professionals is bring your own device, or BYOD.
With BYOD comes the growth of bandwidth-intensive applications such as video streaming, which places a high demand on organizational infrastructure. Compounding the urgency for enterprises to align to the trends and meet user demands is the end-user’s expectation of always-on network and application performance.
The next generation of Wi-Fi is here in the form of 802.11ac. 802.11ac is designed to give enterprises the tools to meet the demands of the BYOD and the always-connected user. This emerging technology is the most efficient Wi-Fi standard to date and is optimized for high density and high bandwidth.
In this workshop, Cisco Mobility Product Manager Mark Denny will explore the features and the benefits of 802.11ac. Since more and more enterprise networks are considering adopting this technology, he will discuss how 802.11ac is being used today.
As a part of this discussion, IT representatives from Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas will also share about their plans for 802.11ac in the healthcare industry.
Whether you are an IT manager or an administrator, this webinar can provide you with valuable information on benefits of 802.11ac, and how to best use this emerging technology.
