Hear Craig Mathias of Farpoint Group and Jay Botelho of WildPackets discussing 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies, where they will offer their insights on the importance of 802.11ac now and in the future.

With a wide variety of enterprise-class 802.11ac products now appearing in the market, IT leaders have some interesting questions to consider: What are the key features and benefits of 802.11ac? Should 802.11ac be deployed now, or later? How should these deployments be staged? What about situations where 802.11ac isn't scheduled for near-term operation, but potential threats like rogue 802.11ac APs demand near-term solutions?

  • 12. 802.11ac Deployment Options Deploy Now – Overlay • Initial augmentation • Power user “hot spots” • High density/demand areas • Gradual dominance Deploy Now – Rip and Replace • Not as common • Important to optimize 5 GHz. • Still need .11g/n at 2.4 GHz. Assurance Only • Possible future cutover to access • Assurance is always required • Prevent unauthorized activity • Integrated or Overlay #wp_wireless Source: Farpoint Group 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies © WildPackets, Inc.
  • 13. 802.11ac Barriers to Adoption Standard Not Finished • Historically the case… • Wi-Fi Alliance specification Few 802.11ac Clients Today • Will improve over time • Improved .11n client performance regardless 802.11n Deployments Not Complete • Depreciation/financial impacts • Can substitute 802.11ac APs in .11n mode Wave 2 • Does not obsolete Wave 1 • Continual improvements expected regardless • Consequence of waiting is more .11n #wp_wireless Source: Farpoint Group 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies © WildPackets, Inc.
  • 14. Getting Ready for 802.11ac Wired Network Audit • Interconnect/backhaul • 802.3at PoE may not be required • Multiple Gig-E links per AP Dense Deployments • Capacity • Rates vs. range Management • Console upgrades • Procedures • Assurance Continue to Deploy 802.11n if Desired • Long payback period • Non-disruptive, gradual upgrade strategy • But not the optimal strategy… #wp_wireless Source: Farpoint Group 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies © WildPackets, Inc.
  • 15. Conclusions • 802.11ac is a huge leap forward in WLAN performance – but there’s no magic here ‒ Evolution, not revolution • A variety of options with respect to deployment exist ‒ Near-term deployment for (at a minimum) assurance purposes is essential • 802.11n is not obsolete, but it will be largely replaced by 802.11ac over the next five years • It’s important to stage deployment with an eye towards maintaining the reliability, availability, and integrity of current operations ‒ Talk with your vendor(s) – coexistence and migration ‒ And remember – success in WLANs is not just about radios! #wp_wireless 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies © WildPackets, Inc.

  • 23. WLAN Analysis – Then and Now Copyright 2013 – All rights reserved © WildPackets, Inc. www.wildpackets.com
  • 24. Then … • Locally connected devices • Commercially available USB devices • Multiple devices for channel aggregation #wp_wireless 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies © WildPackets, Inc. 24
  • 25. The Problem with “Then” • I’m most probably NOT near the problem • I still need supported devices • I need supported devices that equal or exceed the most capable devices on my network – now 802.11ac • And, most importantly … • USB is simply NOT up to the task! #wp_wireless 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies © WildPackets, Inc. 25

USB • USB 1.1 (Full Speed) ‒ September 1998 ‒ 12 Mbps ‒ If you still have equipment with v1.1, get something new! • USB 2.0 (High Speed) ‒ April 2000 ‒ 480 Mbps theoretical; 280 Mbps effective ‒ Extremely common for laptops in use • USB 3.0 (Super Speed) ‒ November 2008 ‒ 5 Gbps theoretical; 3.2 Gbps effective #wp_wireless 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies © WildPackets, Inc. 26
  • 27. Now Let’s Review #wp_wireless 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies © WildPackets, Inc. 27
  • 28. So, What “Now”? • As wireless approaches wired speeds, it’s time to start relying on the wire • Distributed analysis using deployed assets – APs – is the only effective solution as wireless speeds grow • The choices: ‒ Remote PCap ‒ Custom Remote Adapters #wp_wireless 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies © WildPackets, Inc. 28
  • 29. Remote Pcap • A WinPcap feature that allows interaction with a remote machine to capture packets • The remote device must be running the remote Pcap daemon (rpcapd) • Remote Capture Protocol (RPCAP) modes: ‒ Passive Mode (default): analyzer connects to the remote daemon, sends the appropriate commands, starts the capture ‒ Active Mode: remote daemon tries to establish a connection to the analyzer, the analyzer sends the appropriate commands to the daemon, starts the capture • Simply start a capture on the analyzer and point it to the available RPCAP interfaces • Vendor support: Aerohive, Ruckus, … #wp_wireless 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies © WildPackets, Inc. 29
  • 30. Remote Pcap (cont.) #wp_wireless 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies © WildPackets, Inc. 30
  • 31. Custom Remote Adapters • Allow an AP that can be put into promiscuous mode to act like a direct-connected sniffing device • Allow the full capabilities of the AP to be leveraged • APs are “reconfigured” via the AP controller software • Depending on the manufacturer and the model, APs may or may not be able to continue sending traffic • Vendor support: Cisco, Aruba, Meru #wp_wireless 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies © WildPackets, Inc. 31
  • 32. Custom Remote Adapters #wp_wireless 802.11ac: Technologies and Deployment Strategies © WildPackets, Inc. 32
