(Original Workshop - Tuesday, December 17th, 2013)
Mobile devices are playing a larger part in today's businesses. Enterprise IT managers are struggling to keep pace with mobility's dramatic effects on workplace productivity and requirements.
With the fast pace of mobility adoption by consumers, network usage has started to outrun the infrastructure of most enterprises’ mobile networks. One of the growing trends weighing heavily on the minds of most network IT professionals is bring-your-own-device (BYOD) access. Other trends that place a heavy demand on organizational infrastructure include the growth of bandwidth-intensive applications, such as video streaming. Included in all of this is the user’s expectation of always-on network and application performance.
802.11ac is the next generation of Wi-Fi. It is designed to give enterprises the tools to meet the demands of BYOD access, high bandwidth applications, and the always-on connected user. This workshop presents the benefits of 802.11ac and how it is optimized for high density and high bandwidth. Central to the discussion is how 802.11ac can provide a significant performance increase over 802.11n and how this can decrease the total cost of ownership for your enterprise network.
In this workshop, Mark Denny, Cisco Mobility Product Manager, explores the features and the benefits of 802.11ac. Since more and more enterprise networks are considering adopting this technology, he discusses how 802.11ac can be used today.
Whether you are an IT manager or an administrator, this workshop will provide you with valuable information on the benefits of 802.11ac, and how to take full advantage of this emerging technology.
