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.
