Trends Driving the Enterprise Wireless LAN
April 22nd, 2013 By: Bill Kleyman
With more devices, more data and many more connections to a given network – the conversation around Wireless LAN (WLAN) technologies continues to thrive. Organizations are continuously working to optimize and create efficient WLAN environments capable of meeting the ever-changing needs of the end-user. As more users bring in their own devices which require connectivity into a WLAN platform, organizations may need to re-evaluate their existing platform and see where they can optimize. According to this white paper, a key driver in this trend is business users demanding the usability and functionality experienced with consumer devices. This means requirement for smartphones, tablets, laptops, and media-intensive applications in business environments are putting greater, and different, demands on the enterprise WLAN.
In this white paper, HP and Indaba outline the key WLAN market dynamics including:
- Employee productivity
- Business process throughput
- Customer/end-user satisfaction
- Cost savings
- FTE savings
- Tangible vs. intangible benefits
In creating a powerful WLAN environment, managers must analyze the capabilities that are being offered today and see how they will meet demands both now and in the future. This is why it’s important to work with flexible platforms which are capable of direct scalability. Download this white paper to learn about HP’s WLAN-specific product strategy. This means a focus on accessing wire-line performance via Wi-Fi certified GbE WLAN client access. Furthermore, this white paper will outline how this type of technology can deliver up to a 50% increase in user density and performance for delivery of multimedia and cloud-based applications. In addition,
When developing a WLAN strategy, IT administrators must always try and consider management as part of the platform. When controlling WLAN devices as well as the entire WLAN infrastructure, ease of management is a must. In this white paper, HP and Indaba outline the importance of a good management console – one that provides centralized configuration of multiple access points, supports up to 2,500 mobile devices, and wired and wireless device status and network performance. All of these WLAN technologies are built around helping your business stay agile and continue to meet today’s end-point demands.
