  • The Truth about 802.11ac Wave-2 Technology Recorded: Apr 27 2017 63 mins
    Devin Akin, CEO, Divergent Dynamics
    We’re now half way through the sales cycle of 802.11ac Wave-2 APs. Where are those 4x4:4 clients we were promised? Why is nobody using 160MHz channels? What about the value that MU-MIMO was supposed to deliver? So far, Wave-2 has failed to deliver on the marketed promises and will soon be replaced with the new 802.11ax technology. What is preventing customers from realizing the value of Wave-2, as marketed by AP manufacturers? Have the vendors finally been caught red-handed in their mis-marketing of a technology?  Join Devin Akin as he shares the facts about Wave-2 technology.

  • Mantenimiento y solución de problemas en sitios remotos Recorded: Feb 14 2017 90 mins
    Pepe Bonilla Cepeda
    Cuando se genera un ticket de soporte desde una locación remota muchas veces atenderlo implicará un viaje en carro o en avión. Puede ser muy complejo determinar la causa raíz del problema si no se está en sitio. El problema más común es que la experiencia de quien atiende el problema es insuficiente para pronto resolverlo, por lo que toma tiempo asignar al recurso que sí lo pueda resolver, y eso tiene un costo alto. Mientras más tiempo toma resolver un problema, mayor es el costo y el impacto para la organización.

    Temas clave:

    • Acceso remoto
    • Descubrimiento de red
    •Captura de paquetes y análisis
    • Disponibilidad de dispositivos y serviciois
    • Soporte en sitio por personal que nos es de TI
    • Conectividad de red, incluyendo PoE
