Despite the momentum of small cells, the distributed antenna system (DAS) business remains strong as major mobile operators continue to deploy DAS and upgrade DAS to LTE in large venues such as stadiums where small cells are inadequate. This webinar analyzes the future of DAS and its relationship to small cells, remote radio heads (RRHs) and Wi-Fi.Read more >
Organizations across all industries are facing increased pressure from customers, vendors, and employees to offer wireless access. While offering this service provides significant gains, businesses cannot forget about security, and for small and mid-sized businesses – the target of 62% of cyber-attacks – it’s all the more critical.
Join Ryan Orsi, Director of Strategic Alliances, as he delves into the top challenges of bringing enterprise-grade Wi-Fi to SMBs, and the key solutions within reach of all organizations.
According to eMarketer, online retail sales will grow from $225.5 billion in 2012 to $434.2 billion in 2017. How will your traditional bricks-and-mortar retail organization keep up? Until now, online retailers have had an unfair advantage, their platforms are designed to observe customer behavior and influence purchases (think of the Amazon “Customers who bought this item also bought” feature).
Many WiFi Retail Presence Analytics platforms promise the world, but provide little more than a collection of reports and meaningless data. Fortinet Presence Analytics is different, delivering a platform that helps you better understand customer behavior, engage more closely with your customers and actually influence their purchasing decisions.
Join Koroush Saraf, Senior Director of Product Management at Fortinet as he demonstrates how your retail organization can leverage Fortinet’s Presence Analytics to increase your revenue.
In this webinar, Koroush will cover:
· How WiFi Presence Analytics works
· Social WiFi and its impact on customer engagement
· Customer privacy concerns and how to address them
· How you can leverage Presence Analytics to increase sales and revenue
Although much has been said about the SDN in the Data Center, SDN is particularly well suited to address multi-tenant wireless infrastructure. Paul Congdon, Tallac Networks CTO and Vice Chair of the ONF Mobility and Wireless Workgroup, will discuss the challenges facing existing campus WiFi deployment. He will then break down how using OpenFlow in conjunction with cloud technologies enables customers to create specific network applications. Examples, like the OpenFlow captive portal, used at the ONS event will be examined.Read more >
Wi-Fi security attacks, hacking, stolen mobile devices – are these keeping you awake at nights? Are you surprised that Wi-Fi networks can be more secure than your wired networks? Wireless LAN has come a long way from the days of its inception with inadequate security.
Contrary to common belief, security is not a single protocol or an appliance or an encryption. It is a system of different components working together to ensure your Wi-Fi network is secure and your confidential information is protected.
Join this webinar to learn about
- Advances in Wi-Fi security
- Multi-layers approach to holistic protection
- Controlling user and device access
- Controlling applications
-Xirrus security solutions
Just because Wi-Fi usage has outpaced your original plans doesn’t mean it should be the cause of heartbreak and misery. This is your chance to beat the Wi-Fi blues and keep your users from falling into a funk.
In this hands-on webinar you’ll learn the top reasons why Wi-Fi networks become slow and unusable—and how to make it right. We’ll cover today’s best practices in Wi-Fi network design, including the latest capacity-planning approach that goes against conventional wisdom. We’ll cover how to:
Ballpark needs based on types of users and applications
Maximize frequency re-use, with lower power levels and less shouting
Configure access points and secure traffic
Use coverage mapping and conflict mapping tools
And much more!
We’ve all got troubles, but wireless access shouldn’t be one of them.
According to a 2014 Infonetics survey, 45% of mobile operators plan to deploy remote radio heads (RRHs) as an alternative or complement to small cells, to create denser coverage and capacity on their networks. But connecting a group of RRHs to a stack of baseband units, usually deployed in a CO, has specific challenges. This webinar examines the requirements for RRH and for extending it to full Cloud-RAN (or C-RAN) topologies, and also discusses considerations for integrating fronthaul connectivity into the backhaul network.
Key Topics for Discussion:
- C-RAN: Definitions and drivers
- The challenges of Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) transport: Network planning and performance criteria
- Fronthaul: Architectures, testing connectivity, and integrating into the transport network
- Answers to audience questions during live Q&A
Watch this short two minute video on the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism (SCPRT). They were currently in the process of reimagining the state’s welcome centers and expanding its WiFi offerings in South Carolina state parks. SCPRT is using Cradlepoint solutions in its welcome center counters and significantly expanded the availability of public WiFi in state parks across the state. They also use Enterprise Cloud Manager to configure, monitor, and manage its growing network.Read more >
This year on Black Friday and beyond, retailers will use more technology and applications — in a more mobile environment — than ever before. The biggest challenge is keeping all those applications — everything from gift card kiosks and customer WiFi, to Point-of-Sale and inventory devices — always connected and always protected.
