Presented by

About this talk

Universities and colleges everywhere are depending on wireless LAN as the primary network access for students, professors, staff and guest. The wireless LAN must be pervasive, robust and secure. Students bring a plethora of Wi-Fi™ devices including iPhones, iPads, Blackberries, laptops, Netbooks, and gaming consoles to campus and expect to use them on the Wireless LAN everywhere and anytime. How are universities providing wireless coverage? How are they dealing with the large influx and variety of WiFi device types? How are all these devices authenticated and managed without impacting the network performance which may affect everyone? Join us and learn how Franklin and Marshall College tackle these issues across their campus. Plus hear from Meru Networks and Bradford Networks what they see being deployed as the best practices for Wireless LAN security in higher education.

Enterprises using wireless networking for business-critical applications belong to a diverse range of industries and geographic areas. They have an equally diverse range of reasons for choosing wireless: universities require very high bandwidth density for all-wireless dorms; manufacturing companies need smooth roaming for telephony users; hospitals demand rock-solid reliability for critical patient monitoring systems. And there are enterprises that need all of these and more. The one thing these companies all have in common is that they derive real strategic value from the wireless LAN and wireless access is not a second-class network to be used only when an Ethernet port is unavailable. This channel will help you learn about the benefits and real-world experiences of becoming an All-Wireless Enterprise.
