Securing K-12 WiFi - A Scary Movie Blog
Posted by Louise Peter on Oct 31, 2017

It is a classic urban legend horror scene - a young woman is home alone (she is usually a babysitter). She receives creepy phone calls asking "Have you checked the kids?" The babysitter calls the police and the police set up watch outside the house to keep the babysitter safe. The police trace the phone calls and to their horror, they discover that the calls are not coming from another location, but they are coming from inside the house.

Like Peanut Butter and Chocolate… Performance and Rogue Detection is Always Better Together
Posted by Sean Blanton on Nov 18, 2016

We all know performance testing is as important a task as any in the WiFi business. We need to know the limits of our access points after all, and it certainly helps you to have all the information at hand to make the most informed decision you can. But performance testing focused soley on speed? Well, while it's important, it doesn't give you all the information you need. Because you, dear reader, are not just upgrading your WiFi for speed. You want all the bells and whistles that come standard with enterprise WiFi platforms today. And you want to turn them all on. And most importantly, you want to know if and how they affect speed.

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.

Mojo Cloud Managed Platform Release 8.1.1 — September 2016
Posted by Sean Blanton on Sep 26, 2016

Hello Mojo World! Autumn is fast upon us and as the leaves begin to change (depending on where you are of course) so too does our cloud platform with another great product release. Today I want to highlight two key aspects, each of which represent a significant foot forward towards the future of WiFi, and we are excited to share them with you today.

Benchmark 802.11ac Wave 2 Performance: See How Mojo, Aerohive, Aruba, Meraki, and Ruckus Compare
Posted by Sean Blanton on Aug 9, 2016

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?

Are You Pokémon Go Ready?
Posted by Sean Blanton on Jul 30, 2016

Within a week of its launch, Pokémon Go has become one of the all-time hottest smartphone games.

The first popular implementation of augmented reality (AR), Pokémon Go is based on the Nintendo Game Boy games first introduced in 1996, and which then led to cartoons, card games, and more. (Ah, memories...!) The game has already captured players of all ages and pulled them into capturing Pokémon at the office, on the street, at the park, and everywhere in between. The question is, with schools starting back up in August and September, is your campus Pokémon Go ready? 

Background Scanning is Dead
Posted by Sean Blanton on Jul 29, 2016

It’s no secret that WiFi is becoming the primary (sometimes only) way to access the network in major enterprises, universities, and schools. WiFi networks are seeing growing numbers of devices, and in turn growing traffic of high-bandwidth voice and video applications. You can no longer simply plug in an access point and expect it to maintain strong, reliable connections: you need access points that can dynamically adjust themselves and the clients around them when conditions turn for the worse. But how can an access point do that? Two words: dedicated scanning.

Mojo Cloud Managed Platform Release 8.1 — July 2016
Posted by Sean Blanton on Jul 18, 2016

Happy summer, Mojo World! It’s time again for another cloud release and I want to take some time to highlight a couple of key items. Our goal is simple: deliver superior enterprise WiFi. And though our past releases focused on our cloud architecture built around WiFi analytics and automation, this time we want to hone in on the cool new things our access points are doing to help ensure your WiFi is the best it can be. So let’s focus on two specific additions: Mojo Air and the Mojo Cluster Protocol (MCP).

We’ve all been there right? Stuck in a rut, unable to break free from the ways we’ve always done things. No, I’m not talking about your love life (well, not in this post, anyway), I’m talking about WiFi! Big things are happening in the world of enterprise WiFi, and we at Mojo are excited to lead the efforts to innovate our business and deliver services and specialized features that really make a difference. Let’s dive into an example, shall we?

Easier WLAN Troubleshooting with Wireless Manager’s New Monitoring Tab
Posted by Sean Blanton on Jun 7, 2016

Hello, Mojo world! As you saw, in April we had a new release that brought new features to our access points and our cloud. Today I want to hone in on Mojo Wireless Manager’s new Monitoring tab. We recognize that the average IT organization spends almost 80% of their day on monitoring and troubleshooting, and that with the growing demand for fast, reliable WiFi it’s paramount that you see what’s happening everywhere, so you can take action fast.
