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
Wireless Interference can be the monkey on your back. Without the right tools you could spend hours troubleshooting to no avail. Learn what kind of interference is out there and some tricks of the trade to tracking down the root cause.
Join this session and come away armed with best practices around wireless interference.
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 >
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.
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.
