Last week, Mojo introduced the C-130, the industry’s first tri-radio Wave 2 access point with a 2x2 802.11ac third radio. (In an earlier post, Hemant Chaskar explained the security benefits of a 2x2 third radio.) In this post, I will show how that third radio provides significant performance improvements, especially for enterprises running voice and video over WiFi.
WiFi, like walkie-talkies, uses a shared medium. Only one device can effectively transmit at a time. When two people talk on walkie-talkies at the same time, neither is understood. The serial nature (one transmission at a time) limits the capacity of the channel. Capacity can be increased by having users talk faster, or by compressing what is said by using abbreviations for words or phrases. (OMG, this blog post has TMI!)
WIPS monitoring requires scanning all WiFi channels in round-robin fashion to detect threats and vulnerabilities. This scanning can be in one of two forms:
- background scanning, in which a radio that provides WiFi access service intermittently scans off-service channels, or
- dedicated scanning, in which a radio is dedicated to security and does not provide WiFi access service.
For enterprises that desire strong WIPS security and/or those that deploy real-time applications, background scanning isn’t adequate for the following reasons:
As a leader in secure cloud managed WiFi, we look to introduce products that push the envelope in the industry. With that in mind, we’re extremely excited and proud to introduce the C-130 for a few key reasons.
First, the C-130 is the most powerful, versatile, and multi-purpose tri-radio 802.11ac Wave 2 access point. Second, Mojo Networks pricing makes the C-130 the best option on the market, even better than dual-radio access points.
Hello, Mojo world! As you saw, in April we had a new release that brought new features to our access points and our cloud. Today I want to hone in on Mojo Wireless Manager’s new Monitoring tab. We recognize that the average IT organization spends almost 80% of their day on monitoring and troubleshooting, and that with the growing demand for fast, reliable WiFi it’s paramount that you see what’s happening everywhere, so you can take action fast.
Simplify Your WLAN Planning
Mojo Networks recently announced the new version of Mojo Planner, a Windows-based predictive wireless LAN planning tool for our customers and partners. It optimizes your WLAN based on WiFi coverage, capacity, and security.
We hear this question a lot. The explosion of mobile devices and the increased bandwidth possibilities of 802.11ac Wave 2 mean even greater demands on WiFi networks. That often means more pain for network managers, but eliminating those pains is our goal at Mojo Networks.
Your current WiFi vendors are making a fortune on your back. They’re overcharging you, keeping you tied to on-premise controllers, and limiting your choices. They’re doing what’s best for them and not what’s best for you, all under the premise of “enterprise grade” and “high performance” marketing jargon.
It wasn’t too long ago that we announced how we’re changing the way customers purchase WiFi. We don’t want you stuck in a business model that stymies innovation and maintains expensive, inefficient processes. We know there’s a better way. And so today I am proud to announce the new Mojo Lifetime Limited Warranty: a continuation of our efforts to remove inefficiencies, promote innovation and seriously reduce your headaches. You heard it here first: no more RMA.
Hello Mojo world! Today I am psyched to announce yet another amazing release of the Mojo cloud managed platform and, as always, I want to take some time to share the highlights. We’re making a big jump forward as we introduce Mojo Wireless Manager 8.0 and setting the stage for an exciting year of change. We want you to have the accurate, in-depth analytics and automated processes needed to effectively monitor and troubleshoot your network.
