Network Evolution University: Unified Wired and Wireless
The growth of BYOD is highlighting the need to implement unified wired and wireless LANs in increasingly dispersed enterprises. With more remote users armed with a variety of mobile devices, wireless LAN performance needs to match that of the traditional campus LAN, and in a new challenge, IT is tasked with unifying both networks. The WLAN is even poised to become the primary access option as wireless LAN access standards enable faster connections and ranges that match the traditional LAN.
In this classroom, our experts will discuss how enterprises can build a unified access layer for wired and wireless LANs, utilize network optimization strategies for a unified LAN, and deploy network discovery and troubleshooting capabilities to reach across wired and wireless access networks.
