Accelerate the Digital Enterprise with a Cognitively-Enabled WLAN

What were once revolutionary words when talking about enterprise WLAN – monitoring, visibility, single-pane-of-glass management – now sound conventional to the ears of network managers. Today, for many, the features those words describe have evolved into what is now known as the “cloud console.”

As WiFi networks have moved from merely supporting the business to serving as its backbone, WLAN management must evolve as well. Yesterday's security, scalability, and remediation are inadequate for the digitally transformed enterprise in which WiFi is the conduit to customers, suppliers, and mission-critical business applications.

Ruckus R710 Mojo C-120 distributed client benchmark test
Mojo C-120 Accepts the Ruckus R710 BeamFlex Challenge
Posted by Robert Ferruolo (Dr. RF) on Sep 15, 2016

While doing research on the Ruckus website for the R710, I noticed the statement of “Up to 2 times extended range and coverage with Ruckus BeamFlex technology.” Challenge accepted! To evaluate this claim we used a distributed client test, which determines the AP’s downstream performance when its clients are spread near and far, from excellent to marginal signal strength and points in between. This test simulates the performance of the AP in a typical enterprise, carpeted environment.

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.

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.

Why SON May Be SDN Made For Wireless
Posted by Hemant Chaskar on Aug 18, 2015

There is an emerging trend to apply SDN (Software Defined Network) to Wi-Fi. Much of this discussion today is geared towards applying SDN constructs like OpenFlow and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) to Wi-Fi access points (APs). For example, OpenFlow interface on the AP to configure its settings from the SDN controller or to configure traffic handling on the AP such as packet classifiers and QoS from the SDN controller. Another discussion point is around tunneling AP traffic to NFV node for service provisioning. While these are good ideas, they do not cut to the essence of Wi-Fi, which is in the wireless. That is to say, these concepts are applied to APs in the same way they apply to other wired network elements like switches.

Year of the Horse: Wi-Fi and Security Thought Leadership
Posted by AirTightTeam on Feb 26, 2015

In many Asian countries, the New Year is based on the lunar calendar and is dictated by the first new moon and ends on the full moon. In the case of the Chinese calendar, each New Year is marked by the characteristics of one of the 12 zodiacal animals: the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.

Scale versus Scalability

They are different notions. Scale is mostly about numbers, but scalability incorporates business enablement in addition to scale.
