    • Introducing the new AirCheck G2 Wireless Tester Introducing the new AirCheck G2 Wireless Tester John Anderson, Wireless Product Manager Recorded: Jun 9 2016 4:00 pm UTC 36 mins
    • Wi-Fi is now ubiquitous and is business critical for organizations of all sizes. With more Wi-Fi deployments there are more Wi-Fi related problems such as connectivity issues due to interference, misconfiguration, and coverage problems. What matters most to businesses is reducing downtown related to Wi-Fi problems. The challenge is Wi-Fi is complex and typically requires extensive expertise to troubleshoot.

      This session will cover common Wi-Fi problems and how to quickly isolate and troubleshoot these problems. The new AirCheck G2 Wireless Tester provides fast, simple & accurate isolation and troubleshooting of Wi-Fi networks.

    • Security and Wireless, Together at Last Security and Wireless, Together at Last Neil Sundstrom, VP Wireless Solutions, Fortinet Recorded: Aug 14 2013 3:00 pm UTC 37 mins
    • With the inevitability of BYOD and the consumerization of IT, wireless security is now more important than ever.

      The increasing popularity of mobile devices and the need for cost reduction are driving Wireless LAN (WLAN) adoption. Analysts have forecast that spending on enterprise WLAN equipment will rise from $3.4 billion in 2011 to $7.9 billion in 2016, representing an 18.4% CAGR. This widespread adoption of WLANs has resulted in a more pronounced need for network application services, such as WLAN network management and security.

      Neil Sundstrom, VP Wireless solutions at Fortinet, will look at the top 3 problems he sees customers facing with secure wireless access. He will demonstrate how the security of both wired and wireless networks can be managed from a single interface, including centralised policy enforcement; as well as user, device and application level visibility and control.

    • Mobile & Wireless Networks: trends, challenges & explorations into SDN use cases Mobile & Wireless Networks: trends, challenges & explorations into SDN use cases Xiaobo Long, Chair of Wireless and Mobile Working Group in Open Networking Foundation Recorded: May 12 2015 4:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    • As wireless becomes the primary or even sole access method for more and more people, mobile operators must carry higher volumes of traffic and support more sophisticated network services including 3G/4G/5G cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth etc. Also they must do so in a cost-effective manner where rapidly increasing capacity demands far exceed the growth in budgets. This requires us to lower the cost of hardware, maximize the utilization from hardware and frequency assets, while reducing operational costs by embracing new techniques such as automation. Software Defined Networking (SDN) offers a logically centralized control model with programmability, and a flow-based paradigm that is suited for highly scalable mobile and wireless networks, from access to backhaul and core. This Webinar presents the use cases for OpenFlow based SDN for mobile and wireless networks. The SDN architectures provide an agile and cost-effective communications methods for addressing the above challenges.

    • Improve Network Security Using a Wired and Wireless Portable Tool Improve Network Security Using a Wired and Wireless Portable Tool Mike Pennacchi – Owner, Network Protocol Specialists, LLC. Recorded: Oct 27 2016 6:00 pm UTC 57 mins
    • Network security is on the top of every network administrator’s mind. While firewalls and intrusion detection devices do a good job of blocking threats from the outside, it is necessary to have a tool that can easily be moved around the network. Such a tool can be used to monitor the conversations to and from a device, as well as monitoring the wireless network.

      That is where the OptiView XG comes in. Join us for this webinar introducing this single, self-contained tablet, that provides the ability to monitor both wired and wireless networks, analyze the traffic, and provide visibility into potential threats. The OptiView XG has integrated tools and runs the Windows operating system, allowing additional security tools to be loaded.

      In this webinar, we will explore how you can use OptiView XG to:

      - Get in-line, monitor conversations to/from devices
      - Capture wired packets at full line rate
      - Export discovered device information to importable files
      - Monitor the 2.4 and 5 GHz wireless frequencies, identifying devices such as wireless cameras
      - Perform site surveys, which may be used to identify rogue networks and access points
      - Compare actual wireless network with a predefined policy
      - Create reports, detailing the policy violations

      About the presenter:

      Mike Pennacchi is the founder and owner of Network Protocol Specialists, LLC. For the last 20 years, Mike has been traveling the world teaching classes on network troubleshooting and analysis. When he is not teaching classes on network troubleshooting, Mike is using the OptiView XG to troubleshooting critical network problems for his clients. The methods and procedures used to troubleshoot these problems is then brought back into the classroom, to ensure the students are getting timely and accurate information.

    • Troubleshooting Wireless Issues Troubleshooting Wireless Issues Chris Greer, a Network Analyst for Packet Pioneer LLC Recorded: Aug 17 2016 7:55 pm UTC 27 mins
    • Most network engineers have a love/hate relationship with wireless. This amazing technology has enabled them to provide end-user connectivity to the far reaches of their physical environments, while keeping up with the demand brought on by BYOD. However, device-laden bandwidth-hungry users have required a whole new wireless environment in many buildings, forcing engineers to step up their wireless knowledge and skills.

      In this webinar, we will discuss:

      • Common challenges with wireless
      • Where to start when troubleshooting
      • What tools are required

      We will also show how all wireless eventually ends up in a wire, and how to know which technology is to blame when a performance problem strikes.

      This webinar welcomes all wireless skill levels.
