Wireless is fast becoming a major component of network infrastructures as workforce demands for mobility evolve. There is a desire for the flexibility to move about the office without having to crawl under a desk to find a network connection.
With a plethora of devices requiring connectivity, there is often a significant drain on IT budgets to provision the required network cabling. This provides further impetus to seriously consider wireless solutions.
Here are some factors in the decision-making process when considering wireless expansion, or transitioning to full wireless:
– Overall network security plan
– Capacity for multiple devices per user
– Support for multi-user multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO)
– Utilizing real time applications such as voice and video
– Managing network complexity
– Satisfying user expectations
Shedding the wired network totally may be desirable, but is not likely to be universal in the near future. However, acquiring the 802.11ac wave 2 devices will be an important consideration. The potential for MU-MIMO and offering higher throughput per access point (up to 2.5Gbps in some instances), make them worthwhile.
