High-speed 802.11ac wireless has arrived, with up to 3X the speed of older standards. And while high-speed WiFi is vital to the productivity and success of today’s organizations, you need make sure it is secure against emerging threats.
Attend this webcast to learn:
• The benefits of the 802.11ac wireless standard
• Why your wireless network security needs to be as strong as your wired network
• What you need to consider when choosing a wireless security solution
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.
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.
We will discuss the importance of 5Ghz for your Wireless Network; how to properly support the new iPhone 5, the new iPad, Droids and Tablets; and how to ensure you are not being overcharged by your existing Wireless vendor.Read more >
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.Read more >
With 75% of enterprise users reporting that they use their cell phones for making work calls, the inevitable question we must ask is, "can we just run our business on cell phones and ditch the PBX?" In this webinar, we will review the massive changes in the wireless landscape that have made this viable in the past 3 months, the solutions that make it possible and what implications this has for the modern BYOD organization.Read more >
The FCC’s recent USF order is setting the stage for wireless carriers that rely on support to provide mobile services. In particular, the FCC is proposing to streamline Phase II of the Mobility Fund to focus on (1) preserving existing mobile voice and broadband service that would not otherwise exist without governmental support and (2) expanding 4G LTE access to populations that will not have such service through commercial deployments. Until Mobility Phase II is actually implemented and operational, however, the FCC proposes to temporarily halt the continued phase-down of the old identical support at the 60% level, subject to a 1% wireless revenue threshold that for some could mean the instant elimination of USF support. Join us for more details about the USF order and how it might impact your wireless ETC support.Read more >
