  2. 2. HOT ISSUE: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Everything Is Changing Fast
  3. 3. WiFi Meltdown – even smart people had the WiFi fail-Multil billion $$ Ipad Launch 3
  4. 4. Traditional EnterpriseWLAN Architecture CannotPrepare YouClient-in-control wireless networksgive control to the devices only:• Each device chooses how and where to connect without regard for other devices• Devices decide when to break a connection and make a new one as they move through the networkThe results: CHAOS• Inability to scale• Inconsistent reliability• Compromised QoS• Labor-intensive management and operation• Inefficient resource management
  5. 5. Next BIG step for WiFi – 802.11ac• Some early products already released• Ratification expected next year• Chip manufactures already released 802.11ac chips• Clients soon to ship• 80MHz and 160MHz channel width• 802.11ac is coming….
  6. 6. And if we are a microcell vendor we still have to have a minimum of 3 channels to play the “Let’s not overlap each other dance”. 1st Channel 1st Channel 3rd Channel 3rd Channel ????????? ????????? 2nd Channel 2nd Channel 1st Channel 1st Channel 3rd Channel 3rd Channel ????????? ????????? 2nd Channel 2nd ChannelSo? Where are the microcell vendors going to get the 3rd channel without utilizing 4 of thechannels affected by DFS regulations? The answer is simple. They can’t!
  7. 7. So? Where are the microcell vendors going to get the 3rd channel80MHz wide bonded channel that they need without utilizing 4 ofthe channels affected by DFS regulations?The answer is simple. They can’t! So if you use a Multi Channel Architecture/Microcell you have only two choices: a.) Utilize the DFS channels and tell your customers that “Yes a false positive detection of a radar signal by your Wi-Fi radio chipset will cause your Wi-Fi network to complete break because you will lose one of the three (minimum) necessary channels for a microcell environment to work! b.) adopt a Single Channel Architecture.Meru has been right on target from the beginning!
  8. 8. What are IT ‘s challenges • Limited IT Staff – Same person for wired/wireless/security• Wi-Fi is pervasive and primary access network – New biz workflows require minimum Wi-Fi downtime • BYOD – Bring Your Own Device – How to manage flood of devices? 8
