WiFi White Papers

Wi-Fi, also, WiFi, Wi-fi or wifi, is a brand originally licensed by the Wi-Fi Alliance to describe the underlying technology of wireless local area networks (WLAN) based on the IEEE 802.11 specifications. Wi-Fi was developed to be used for mobile computing devices, such as laptops, in LANs, but is now increasingly used for more applications, including Internet and VoIP phone access, gaming, and basic connectivity of consumer electronics such as televisions and DVD players, or digital cameras.

While providing your customers and guests with Wi-Fi, you can give them pertinent information, individual attention, and special offers. And you can learn how, where, and when they move through your venue. Customers or guests passing through your store, hotel, or other venue increasingly expect free Wi-Fi. They also expect personal service. You can give them both, which can help boost your sales. And in doing so, you can gain information that will help make your venue more attractive and profitable.

Location-based services (LBS) show promise as a budding customer-centric mobility solution in some early adopting verticals such as retail, hospitality, and large public venues. Such services enable businesses to better understand their customer base through analytics as well as offer targeted, context-based communications including promotions and remote assistance. This IDC white paper explores the burgeoning LBS market, highlighting custom research conducted by IDC in March and April 2014; surveys were fielded to both IT and line-of-business (LOB) decision makers in select verticals and market segments. In this white paper, IDC analyzes the data and explores the attitudes surrounding LBS adoption in the context of broader technology trends.

Midsize firms from every region and industry are finding themselves under increasing pressure to improve productivity and business performance. Firms with 100 up to 1,000 or even 2,500 employees are still agile enough to respond to new opportunities, but they typically lack the comprehensive resources of larger companies to empower workers, manage processes, and generally drive successful customer engagement. This white paper examines the opportunity midmarket firms have in leveraging network infrastructure for competitive success in the new cloud and mobility era. Midmarket firms can improve their competitive position by providing more efficient access to advanced productivity resources.

This part of the CVD describes design considerations to implement a successful BYOD solution and different deployment models to address diverse business cases. Other parts of the CVD provide more details on how to implement unique use cases. There are numerous ways to enable a BYOD solution based on the unique business requirements of a specific organization. While some organizations may take a more open approach and rely on basic authentication, other organizations will prefer more secure ways to identify, authenticate, and authorize devices. A robust network infrastructure with the capabilities to manage and enforce these policies is critical to a successful BYOD deployment.

Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families. Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products. Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance. Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report.
