The Benefits of a 3-Radio 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Point
Posted by Freddy Mangum on Aug 23, 2016

Mojo Networks recently introduced the C-130, a three-radio 802.11ac Wave 2 access point, because our enterprise and university customers demanded more functionality for their WiFi infrastructure. The C-130 is a multi-purpose access point that can dedicate the third radio for an array of functionalities and associated benefits:

A Mojo Customer Story: Oakland Catholic High School

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.

Benchmark 802.11ac Wave 2 Performance: See How Mojo, Aerohive, Aruba, Meraki, and Ruckus Compare

The backbone of any WiFi network is the access point. Speeds have increased significantly with the advent of 802.11ac, and its second iteration (referred to as “Wave 2”) we are finally seeing multi-gigabit WiFi come to the forefront. These improvements owe a lot to the advancements made by chipset manufacturers and ODMs, who in turn create an ecosystem from which all major players pull their hardware. But hardware only goes as far as the software that lives within: in reality the highest levels of performance are realized from these two aspects working together. So when it comes to understanding that performance, two questions come to mind: How do you measure WiFi performance? And: Who has the best access point performance in the market today?

Why 802.11ac Wave 2? Speed and Capacity
Posted by Robert Ferruolo (Dr. RF) on Jun 22, 2016

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!)

Why Your Access Points Need a Third 2x2 11ac Radio for Security
Posted by Hemant Chaskar on Jun 21, 2016

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:

  1. background scanning, in which a radio that provides WiFi access service intermittently scans off-service channels, or
  2. 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:

Future-proof your network with the latest in 802.11ac Wave 2 technology

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.

Using Wave 2 to Quadruple the Capacity of Your Classroom WLAN

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.
