WLAN Discussions

emsignia.jpgWireless events tend to be transient, seemingly happening here and there without rhyme or reason. This can make analyzing security and performance issues difficult, given that interference or a security event might not be visible at the time an RF administrator or monitoring device checks the environment. So for trend analysis, granular historical records of what took place over the airwaves is imperative. How can having the ability to "rewind" and see what's happened historically benefit Wi-Fi performance, connectivity and security in an enterprise? That's the question that this Thought Leadership Discussion with Nathan Rowe, senior product manager at Motorola in the company's AirDefense group, will answer.


For months now, we've been reading predictions that video traffic is about to flood corporate networks. Meanwhile, wireless LANs (WLANs) are quickly becoming employees' default access network. Video traffic consumes significant bandwidth and is sensitive to delay, packet loss and jitter. These metrics are particularly challenging to control in Wi-Fi's interference-prone and shared-access RF environment.


As WLANs and video applications become de rigueur in the enterprise, then, how can network administrators ensure high-quality, reliable performance of multimedia applications? Let's explore this question with Manju Mahishi, Director, Wireless Products Strategy at Motorola Solutions.
