The promise of 802.11ax – What should we expect?

What is new in 802.11ax
802.11ax promises a lateral progression of the WiFi standard. Until now, all new WiFi specifications were focused on improving the peak data rates. 802.11ax takes a side step and promises higher efficiency rather than higher peak rates. It promises to improve the total throughput in a cell and deliver more data to the clients rather than try to improve the speed at which the data is transmitted. 802.11ax features will be available in 2.4 GHz band as well (as opposed to 802.11ac which was available only in 5GHz).

WiFi Freedom
White-Box Heroes
Posted by Mike Feibus on Jun 13, 2018

Enterprise Wi-Fi customers can now, for the first time, choose an access point from Column A and a network operating system from Column B. Even when both options happen to be on two different suppliers’ menus. It’s all made possible with new offerings from white-box Wi-Fi pioneers Mojo Networks and EdgeCore Networks.

The Wi-Fi access points that Mojo Networks and EdgeCore Networks offer to enterprise clients are actually encased in white boxes. But don’t let that fool you. Because they’re not actually white-box Wi-Fi APs.

At least, they weren’t. Until now.

Stadium WiFi deployments are considered one of the most challenging for multiple reasons.

  • Stadiums are an extreme case of high density (HD) deployment, with tens of thousands of people packed in a relatively small area.

Feedback to WLAN CEOs
Posted by Robin Jellum on Jun 1, 2018

Today on Twitter Lee Badman posed a request to “to provide direct, unfiltered feedback to a WLAN company CEO about what is working or not in the company's products and business methods from the field perspective.”

The feedback so far as been very insightful. I took the liberty of categorizing the comments to evaluate trends. Here is the breakdown.

Meet Steve, CIO of IT at a large University.  Like you, his number one priority is to deliver a stable wireless network for students and staff.  Not easy to do. Steve and his team of IT professionals struggle to keep up with ever increasing demands on the network; number of students connected, devices per student, security threats, high-density zones, and skyrocketing bandwidth as mobile is now at the center of learning and leisure.

The End is Near… for Big Logos and Overpriced Hardware
Posted by Louise Peter on May 3, 2018

At Mojo Networks we’ve been on our soapbox for some time preaching that the end is near… at least for vendor lock-in and egregious hardware margins. Massive innovation is happening in the realm of software with the cloud enabling new ways we can harness data for quicker and more intelligent decision-making. Alternatively, hardware innovations come at a slower pace, but Big Logos have enjoyed huge margins on hardware where they have little to no value add. As hardware becomes commoditized, in many cases with little differentiation between Access Points produced by different manufacturers, it seems inevitable that the day of reckoning for vendor lock-in is near.

The industry’s big boys are starting to talk the disaggregation talk. But can they walk the walk?

This spring, HPE’s Aruba, the second-largest enterprise Wi-Fi provider, took aim at Cisco’s all-in-one market approach with its new Mobile First Architecture, which the company described as an open architecture that lets customers mix and match the best tools from multiple vendors at competitive prices. The very same week, networking giant Cisco also began recasting itself as disaggregation-friendly.

The current standard for security over WiFi links is WPA2. WiFi Alliance recently announced plans to introduce WPA3 for improvements to WiFi security. While no technical details on WPA3 have been announced, there are clues in the announcement and in the technical literature, to what WPA3 may contain. This blog reviews security protocols, namely OWE and Dragonfly, that are believed to be introduced in WPA3.
