  • Understanding and Mitigating Wi-Fi Risks and Threats Recorded: Sep 23 2014 46 mins
    Perry Correll, Senior Technologist, Xirrus
    Today, a wireless network designed properly is widely considered equal to or in many cases more secure than most deployed wired networks. However no single device, feature, or protocol can protect your wireless or even a wired network, it will require a comprehensive approach.

    This is accomplished by applying multiple layers of security through mechanisms such as authentication, encryption, client classification and access, and IDS/IPS (intrusion detection and intrusion prevention services) the wireless network can be assuredly secured. Designed correctly, a wireless solution can provide a level of service with the ability to ID and classify users, securely protect data as it traverses the network, and also monitor the surrounding RF environment for threats.

    The audience will learn about key wireless security issues and mechanisms including:

    - Wireless Security Myths vs. Reality
    - Controlling user access
    - Securing communication across the air
    - Addressing BYOD with Device Identification and Control
    - RF Monitoring for wireless threats

    As the world going mobile, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) is becoming an integral part of every organization. While providing a plethora of benefits for the employees, it has the potential to negatively impact organizations if their networks are unprepared.

    BYOD can quadruple the number of devices on the network, which can cause it to slow down significantly and hinder the productivity of employees and the business overall. When enabling business applications on devices, performance becomes especially critical.

    View this video to hear more on the impact of BYOD on the networks and hear more on:

    - How should wireless networks be designed to support the transition from 2.4GHz to 5GHz devices?
    - How does device optimization work in a BYOD environment, with a myriad of unique mobile devices hitting a WiFi network unpredictably?
  • 5 Steps to Designing a High Density Wi-Fi Recorded: Sep 11 2014 27 mins
    Kowshik Bhat, Director, Product Marketing, Xirrus
    The days of designing wireless networks for coverage are long gone. The word high density paints the picture of a large convention center or a stadium or an Arena with hundreds of people f not thousands in a single location. Never did we think a school would some day become a high density place, An office with 100 employees suddenly has become a high density environment. Research shows a business traveller carries about 2.8 devices on an average. In a higher education institutions the number averages between 5-7 devices per student. The unpredictability of devices attaching to your network, the unpredictability of the traffic those mobile devices are consuming is causing significant challenges for IT. In this webinar you will learn the 5 steps you should take in designing a robust wireless network for high density requirements.
