  • 8. • Millions of personal mobile devices being used in the enterprise under BYOD policies • These mobile devices depend on Wi-Fi but have consumer grade Wi-Fi mainly in drivers • Poor audio/video quality and dropped calls • Slowing the migration of voice/video to Wi-Fi
  • 9. Can your network handle the load? • Average of 2.5 Wi-Fi enabled devices per user • Multimedia UC traffic from 802.11n devices Do you have ubiquitous coverage? • Networks designed for data/hotspot coverage won’t deliver a good multimedia UC experience Is your network ready for BYOD? • BYOD creates massive security issues Is end-to-end QoS a challenge? • Networks often incorrectly tag multimedia traffic • Encrypted UC traffic also needs correct Quality of Service (QoS)

  • 19. Virtual Collaboration ProtoSphere creates an always on virtual collaboration workspace to bring people together in the enterprise. Immersive, Social, Learning in the Cloud ProtoSphere leverages Lync and SharePoint to bring the right people and the right data together at exactly the right moment to increase the speed and effectiveness of knowledge transfer. It is a humanized, social display layer of interconnected shared spaces. Each representing an always on Lync conference call working both in the cloud and on premises. Participants are represented by an avatar connected to a SharePoint profile, blog ,and wiki. This allows your organization to leverage the power of social production to create and manage knowledge. Hold your culture together over distance in an engaging, human way with an immersive 3D environment. The contextual environment makes learning transformative and is fully integrated with your unified communications infrastructure.

  • 23. Planning • Wi-Fi only vs. mixed wired and Wi-Fi deployments • Determine devices support requirement (11g/n - 11b?) • Determine density - regular office space - conference room – • • • • • common areas Determine workloads over Wi-Fi - Real-time media support Type of devices connected – Enterprise notebook and/or “BYOD” (Bring-your-own-device) Mobile device support - Powersave features Support for guests SSID and mobile device SSID QoS support (WMM for Wi-Fi)
  • 24. Infrastructure recommendations • Enterprise WLAN controller with thin enterprise grade APs or standalone APs • Deploy 802.11n APs • Implement WPA2 in Enterprise Mode • Deploy APs featuring dual (concurrent) 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz operation with 3x3 configuration and 1 Gbps backhaul • Support for RF auto radio management of channel and signal strength • Fast BBS transition support – OKC • Sufficient AP density for seamless coverage. Deploy applicable AP density for required coverage and capacity but keep signal levels between -45dbm to -65dbm and SNR better then 30db (40db preferred) • Design for capacity based on # of clients in coverage area • Plan for overlapping AP coverage (redundancy) is required • Deploy in large conference rooms multiple APs • Enable AP load balancing
  • 25. Infrastructure recommendations continued • 2.4 GHz band: • Drop 11b support • Limit 11n support to 20 MHz channels • 5 GHz band: • Enable band steering of dual band capable devices to 5 GHz • 40 MHz channel • Implement QoS/WMM with EF queue for WMM Voice • Enable WMM on APs for QoS but not mandatory. Enable QoS on Lync servers and clients • Ensure proper QoS on wired network with slower links • Ability to classify and prioritize Lync traffic (SIP-TLS) in the presence of lower priority data traffic • Enable power saving mechanisms ( Legacy or UAPSD) // recommended DTIM is 2 for voice if using legacy mode
  • 26. Client recommendations • Enterprise class notebooks • High-quality dual band NIC with at least 2x2:2 configuration • Support for Radio resource management 802.11k • Real-time media optimized/certified NIC and drivers • Manage NIC driver versions • Mobile devices supporting dual band is better • BYOD is a reality so be prepared
  • 27. Recommendations • Upgrade 11b and 11g routers to 11n • Evaluate “Default” channel on 2.4 GHz – most Wi-Fi routers default to “6” • Upgrade Wi-Fi routers supporting concurrent dual band with 2x2:2 configuration • 11n 2.4 GHz band limit to 20 MHz channels • “Move” dual band devices to 5 GHz (unless there are range limitations) • Source of RF interference in 2.4 GHz Neighbor APs on the same channel Bluetooth devices Game consoles (wireless controllers) Cordless phones • Avoid wireless range extenders (if possible) • Implement application (port/protocol) based QoS for real-time media on Wi-Fi router
  • 28. Recommendations • Plan for usage and concurrently connected devices • Small deployment SMB or entry level Enterprise AP/Controller • Multiple APs if more than 15 concurrent users are anticipated • Deploy SMB APs which support basic load balancing • Typically limited to 2.4 GHz band • Implement policies, such as per device bandwidth quota • Block traffic for typical file sharing applications
