Mobility is the #1 issue facing Enterprise IT today. With the rapid growth of smart devices, organizations are increasingly depending on wireless to transform their businesses.
Learn from Gartner?s Tim Zimmerman the best practices to implement a WLAN.
The Wireless LAN (WLAN) market is maturing, but still generates some significant innovations to compete with wireline and cellular networking. It also continues to produce differentiation, even though core features have become commoditized, and consolidation among vendors continues.
As wireless expectations and demands continue to rise, and as WLANs continue to meet those demands, wired networks will increasingly become the difficult-to-justify cost that WLANs were a few years ago. The question is not ...
March 2012- A BYOD solution should automate the device onboarding process for employees and guests, as well as the administration and enforcement of policies, by gathering information about the context of the device, user and connection. BYOD also requires real-time visibility and reporting to quickly measure, enforce, and meet compliance mandates.
March 2012- Long derided as an overhyped concept, network access control (NAC) has emerged as an important solution for mitigating the risks of consumerization. Network and security managers will use NAC to retain control of the network in a "bring your own device" (BYOD) environment.
Download this whitepaper to learn how state and local governments can leverage next-generation mobility to imrpove access for workers and citizens, while protecting privacy/data easing/unifying management and lowering total cost of ownership.
April 2010- While many forms of wireless-LAN assurance and verification tools have become available over the past decade or so of the history of the WLAN and Wi-Fi, one of the last to be addressed is the ability to examine activity at the physical layer(PHY) – in other words, to look at what’s happening in the air itself, what we call spectral assurance (SA). SA is particularly important not just because the frequencies used by WLANs ...
March 2010- Unified networking is now firmly established as one of the key directions for LAN deployments going forward. As is the case with the improvement in visibility and strategic direction resulting from the ratification of the 802.11n standard,there is little question today regarding the viability of the unified approach, nor with the system vendors’ ability to field product lines implementing the concept. Learn about the benefits of unified networks in this whitepaper from Farpoint Group. ...
Healthcare and life sciences organizations depend on knowledge workers – physicians, researchers, technicians, nurses, analysts, statisticians, salespeople and other professionals – who count on being able to work anytime, anywhere.
A recent report from Forrester® Consulting confirms that healthcare organizations are among the most mobile in the world, and among the most concerned with issues like regulatory compliance and data security.
Employees today are connecting their laptops to the Internet from everywhere: homes and offices, airports and train stations, hotels and retail stores, street corners and moving cars.
These mobile workers expect simple connectivity and fast performance. They expect to be able to use whatever access method is most convenient, but they don’t pay much attention to cost or security. So it is no surprise that wireless costs are spiraling upward, while security ...
January 2010- The electrical power generation, transmission, and distribution system has survived for decades with limited intelligence. But the emergence of independent power producers, green power sources, and new regulatory regimes is making it imperative to add smarts to the grid.
June 2009- IT managers face a difficult task in trying to offer robust services and applications while reducing IT costs and complexity.
