  • Wireless has now reached a tipping point of adoption across all industries.  Increasingly businesses are depending on wireless as their primary form of access.
  • MDM- Mobile Device Management
  • Looks great – the thing I would convey is that Forsyth just implemented BYOT this year and already they see 1/3 of the student population on the WiFi. What it will be next year is probably double that!

    • 10. WIRELESS NETWORK PERFORMANCE What happens if you do nothing? • As device density and traffic goes up, so will complaints • Wireless networks that ran fine all of a sudden do not work As Density/Usage Increases… Works ? Does Not Work The Network Deteriorates © 2011 XIRRUS :: All Rights Reserved 1010
    • 11. WIRELESS NETWORK CAPACITY EXPANSION • Traditional approach - Deploy more equipment - …and more cables - …and more switch ports - …and re-tune the RF • Better approach - Deploy higher capacity equipment - More radios per AP - No more cables or switch ports - Add radios to chassis to grow capacity © 2011 XIRRUS :: All Rights Reserved 1111
    • 12. DESIGN FOR PERFORMANCE • Wireless networks must be designed for tablets/smartphones - Spotty/hot spot coverage insufficient • Signal must be solid in all areas - –67dBm minimum - Live site surveys • Full coverage for both Wi-Fi bands - 2.4GHz as LCD - 5GHz for most tablets & BEST performance © 2011 XIRRUS :: All Rights Reserved 1212
