E2 Radio Talks Mobility Challenges, Opportunities

There's a lot to talk about when it comes to mobility. Join E2 Radio and wireless expert Lee Badman to talk 802.11ac, BYOD and more.

Mobility is an opportunity and challenge. From a business perspective, mobile devices present new ways to interact with customers and partners, and organizations need a clear mobile strategy to take full advantage. Internally, IT is expected to provide robust, secure wireless access while allowing employees to connect to corporate resources using whatever device they want.

In other words, there’s a lot to talk about when it comes to mobility. Tune in to E2 Radio on Friday March 14 at 2:00 EST and chat with Lee Badman, a network engineer and wireless technical lead at Syracuse University. Lee is also chair of the Mobility track at Interop Las Vegas.

E2 Radio host Curt Franklin will talk with Lee about the incredible growth of wireless technology in the enterprise, including the ins and outs of the 802.11ac standard. The new standard promises incredible performance boosts to WLANs, but also requires careful planning to maximize investments in new products.

Lee will also share highlights from the Interop Mobility track, which covers topics such as wireless security, essential tools for WLAN engineers, the pros and cons of BYOD, and optimal WLAN design for retail, healthcare and manufacturing.

Sign up now to join the conversation on E2 Radio and chat with Lee and your IT peers.

In addition to Lee’s role running the wireless network at Syracuse, he also teaches classes on networking, wireless network administration, and wireless security. He’s a long-time contributor to Network Computing. Lee spent 10 years in the US Air Force as an Electronic Warfare Systems Technician and Master Technical Training Instructor. He has presented at several higher education and industry conferences, and has done extensive freelance writing work for IT, low-voltage, and communications periodicals.
