Under the Hood of Vendor Unlocked Whitebox APs
Posted by Sudhan Kayarkar on Apr 17, 2017

The data center industry has embraced hardware/software disaggregation promoted by Open Compute Project (OCP) in servers and switches. It brings benefits of cost, flexibility and innovation. OCP has now started a working group called Campus, Branch and Wireless (CBW) to extend disaggregation concept to enterprise networking. For additional details on OCP/CBW whitebox WLAN AP, see this #wlpc 2017 video presentation by @CHemantC. Mojo Networks has been an active contributor to the CBW group. At the recently concluded Open Compute Summit in Santa Clara, we demonstrated open install of Mojo WLAN software on the latest Qualcomm 802.11ac Wave 2 AP platforms manufactured by 3 different hardware vendors (ODMs).

Securing 30,000 Students and Beyond
Posted by Erika Hashemi on Apr 3, 2017

On any given day, the Santa Rosa County School District has 30,000 students accessing WiFi across 31 elementary, middle and high schools.  As WiFi is quickly becoming the prevalent network access technology in schools, Santa Rosa knew they needed to have a secure and reliable WiFi network in order to provide a pristine user experience on an ongoing basis.

The School District needed a comprehensive WiFi network monitoring and security solution that would provide complete visibility and control of the wireless airspace, all of which was lacking in the wireless controller solution previously deployed. With a small central IT staff to cover the 31 school locations, the ability to remotely manage and quickly troubleshoot WiFi networks was critical.

What are the Realities of WiFi Troubleshooting?
Posted by Sean Blanton on Oct 18, 2016

It goes without saying that WiFi can be, how should I put it, a bit temperamental at times. To be fair, any mode of digital communication that occurs over-the-air is subject to subtle and invisible fluctuations that pop up in the surrounding environment at any time. But when you add on top of that the necessity that WiFi provide an uninterrupted, easy-to-access and (above all else) fast experience, you can begin to imagine the tremendous stress WiFi administrators must feel every day. But imagination doesn’t help us quantify the problem, nor fix it. That’s where a brand new survey by ZK Research comes into play.

WiFi is a Utility, and Needs Capacity Planning

When is the last time you said: “Wow, this WiFi is great!”? You don’t really notice it when it works. You are more likely to say: “This WiFi is crap” when it doesn’t meet your expectations. WiFi is no longer a convenience, it’s an essential utility like electricity. You would like it work every time and without hesitation, like turning on a light.

Like the power grid, one of the biggest challenges in designing a wireless network is capacity planning. The goal of capacity planning is to determine how many access points are needed to provide a good user experience. Deploying too many APs is a waste of money and can make performance worse, but deploying too few will cause user experience problems (the equivalent of brownouts) when an AP becomes oversubscribed.

When Oakland Catholic High School implemented a new 1:1 initiative during the summer of 2014, Vernon Young (Director of Information Technology) expected to encounter some hiccups along the way, but what he did not anticipate was how poorly their controller-based WiFi would perform in a high-density K-12 environment.

K-12 WiFi: Four Things To Consider
Posted by Freddy Mangum on Aug 4, 2016

WiFi in K-12 classrooms is central to today’s e-learning approach to education. While there are many ways to deploy WiFi in schools, here are four simple things to consider when you upgrade the wireless network at your school.
