Wireless LAN Reliability in the Unwired Enterprise

The unwired enterprise has long been a goal in most organizations, and the advent of 802.11n now makes achieving that goal a practical reality. 802.11n and the proliferation of mobile devices are driving the migration from wired to wireless networks throughout the enterprise. But are wireless LANs up to the challenge? Just as wireless security was the biggest barrier to enterprise-wide adoption a few years back, a lack of continuous wireless connectivity is now preventing the unwired enterprise from becoming a ubiquitous reality. This white paper examines what it takes to maximize availability in the unwired enterprise, and explores the five elements needed to make the wireless LAN as dependable as wired Ethernet.

A number of components work together to determine the overall reliability levels of a wireless LAN, as Juniper Networks points out in this tutorial. The company paints a fairly comprehensive picture of the many decisions and elements that collectively play a role in making sure your WLAN functions as reliably and consistently as users have come to expect with wired Ethernet.

And Juniper challenges the notion fostered by one large competitor that spectral analysis built into special access points alone creates a clear path to ensuring WLAN reliability. The tutorial discusses other contributors such as predictive modeling for accurate AP placement, high-availability WLAN alternatives and real-time location services.

A timely must-read for folks embarking on new WLAN installations.
