Cisco Mobility—Getting Ready for 802.11ac

Preparing For 802.11ac—The Next Step In Wi-Fi

Cisco Mobility—Getting Ready for 802.11ac
(Original Webcast: Tuesday, July 17, 2012 10:00 am Pacific Time)

There’s no question that demand for network capacity and bandwidth is growing.

  • By the year 2015, it is projected there will be 15 billion new networked mobile devices
  • Seventy-five percent of employees use multiple devices for work
  • One hundred percent of IT staff struggle to keep up with mobile needs

Organizations that have not migrated to 802.11n need to make a change to support the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend that is undoubtedly affecting the way that they do business. But what happens as their needs grow? With more mobile devices, new wireless clients, and higher consumer expectations, IT simply can’t compromise on performance, user experience, and security.

802.11ac, the next generation of Wi-Fi, is the emerging standard from the IEEE and promises to be very exciting since it will address some critical pain points faced by users of Wi-Fi today—more bandwidth and more simultaneous users.

Watch this webcast, and get ready for 802.11ac.
