Notes de l'éditeur

  1. KIKO VIVEK Kezia Cloud and central Product mkting Manager Some of the slides
  2. Mobility has provided a massive transformation in the computing landscape. Smartphones and tablets have changed how people connect with each other and with corporate services. Employees want to bring in whatever device they currently own and expect to access much more than email. They expect the same high-quality network service that they have at home.
  3. What does that mean for IT? BYOD has sent the demand for enterprise grade WiFi through the roof. IT must support more users, more devices, and deliver greater bandwidth per user. Networks must be engineered to support various devices at different speeds, without degrading the performance of faster clients. The same needs apply regardless of company size or location, or even IT talent. This is a daunting task at best…
  4. What is it? Why do you need it? Wi-Fi at the speed of wired networks Clients that use 802.11ac will seamlessly migrate to the new 802.11ac network, freeing up bandwidth on the 2.4GHz channels. smartphone shipped by 2015 will have “ac” chipsets A majority of the smartphone shipped by 2015 will have “ac” chipsets overlay strategy will allow these devices to remain viable until you’re ready to replace them
  5. How will WLAN integrate with your existing infrastructure, if there is any? Can you integrate and manage premise based wired and WLAN networks from your cloud-managed service? How easy is it to plan and configure network? Have you already made a big investment in another company’s APs, controllers, or other appliances?
  6. Cloud-managed WLAN offers SMBs the enterprise quality management and robust networks that their employees expect, without the need for dedicated IT professionals or large investment in equipment. As long as you do your homework and know what to expect from these cloud services, it can be a great alternative that skirts a lot of IT headaches, and lets you focus on what your company does best.
  7. most 802.11ac APs are dual radio, with one of the radios supporting the legacy 2.4GHz band (b/g/n technologies),
  8. These services offer remote monitoring & troubleshooting, central configuration, and firmware management. Cloud based WLAN services offer the same rich monitoring and mgmt. software that is offered in premise-based solutions. Streamlined interface also reduces time spent managing the network. The management features and options can be as rich or as stripped down as you need.
  9. .
  10. In a BYOD environment, there isn’t a distinction between the employee’s business and personal devices. Consider device onboarding and the authentications used. Many systems can recognize jail-broken or otherwise compromised devices and place those in quarantine. Clients, guests, and other visitors want a hassle free wifi experience, also. Credentials can be sent ahead of time so guests can login when they arrive. The network can separate guest and employee traffic without any IT assistance.
  11. Administrators, whether employees or outsourced IT staff, can access the system from a browser. Each access point's configuration can then be fine-tuned to suit the needs of its particular location. The only thing on-site staff needs to do is plug in the access points (APs). The APs should self configure. This reduces costs as you don’t have to send skilled techs to a site. It’s a simplified and efficient process.
  12. Cloud-based WLAN doesn’t require an upfront software purchase. It also minimized hardware costs because the company doesn’t have to purchase a management server appliance nor a WLAN controller. One of the key benefits of cloud services is that the service includes support and firmware updates in the cost of the monthly subscription. The monthly fees for range from $80-$150 plus the cost of the Access Points TCO goes way down without a huge upfront outlay on dedicated appliances, and maintenance on those appliances.
  13. Many services designed for SMBs are simpler by design. You may get identical hardware with stripped down management features. Cloud services for enterprise use open more policy details and access options, and may deliver extra sophisticated monitoring and reporting.
