A network-focused strategy for wireless security is the conventional wisdom, but is it really the right one? In our next webinar (Wednesday, March 30th, at 8:00 am PST), I’ll argue that a client-focused strategy is best.
As many of you saw last week we announced our latest release for Wireless Manager and Guest Manager - it’s packed with great new features to enhance every aspect of your wireless network. Today I want to zero in on one aspect of that release, and introduce you to another member of the Mojo Access Point family: the W-68!
In the past, a school IT department kept the phone systems running and maintained some desktop computers. Those days are long gone. Today, IT people need to monitor and maintain not just more computers than ever before, but mobile computers: tablets and laptops and smartphones. Some are owned by the school, but teachers and students also bring their own. How can IT maintain, control, and keep track of them all?
It’s easier than you think: a Mojo network comes with an extensive suite of features, each designed and built to make your job (and your life) easier. You won’t need a separate, third-party application for mobile device management (MDM) to accomplish these core tasks.
Hello, Mojo world! We’re really excited about our most recent release to the Mojo cloud managed platform and I wanted to quickly share some highlights. There’s a lot packed into this release. Both Wireless Manager and Guest Manager got updates that will help you with every aspect of your WiFi program - whether it’s for providing fast, reliable access, ensuring the most secure environment possible, or looking for cool new ways to engage with your guests after they connect.
WiFi is changing in a big way. The explosion of wireless devices and growth in cloud applications means that enterprise-grade wireless networks are now a must for more than just the enterprise. Education, hospitality, retail, healthcare, and large public venues also need robust, secure networks.
Since launching in 2003, we’ve been committed to advancing innovation and integrity in the digital age. We take pride in creating — and constantly improving upon — cloud-managed WiFi that can meet the world’s increasing demand for seamless connectivity. We recognize that the industry has many hurdles to overcome, and as such are always excited to see fellow tech visionaries sharing our values and goals — enterprises that are focused on the present and the future needs of an increasingly cloud-first world.
Enterprise-grade isn’t just for the enterprise any more. Educators need fast, high-capacity, secure networks to handle lots of mobile devices and the classroom learning that depends on them. Old-fashioned networks with hardware controllers just aren’t enough. They are too expensive, too difficult to maintain, too hard too expand. That’s why more and more schools are turning to cloud managed, controller-less WiFi networks.
The explosive growth in mobile devices, high-bandwidth applications, and the Internet of Things (IoT) all place greater demands on WLANs. The new 802.11ac Wave 2 standard has come along just in time, and Mojo and Qualcomm are on board with it.
In today‘s increasingly connected world, the need for Wi-Fi hotspots and wireless business connectivity has skyrocketed as cable operators look for ways to deliver value-added services like video, voice and high speed Wireless Internet access. With a wireless network in everyone‘s mobile device, cable providers are constantly in search of the most innovative, scalable and cost-effective products to keep up with the growing demand for connectivity.
Classrooms are changing with the times
Forbes reported in 2014 that only 25% of all technology administrators said they have enough connectivity and bandwidth to meet student and teacher needs. Today’s classrooms increasingly need not “just” WiFi, but reliable, high-capacity WiFi. They need to deal with many challenges: the interactive learning of the “flipped classroom,” streaming video, online testing, and of course lots of mobile devices. They need to empower teachers, even those with limited access to IT support staff.
