WLAN White Papers

A wireless LAN or WLAN is a wireless local area network, which is the linking of two or more computers without using wires. It uses radio communication to accomplish the same functionality that a wired LAN has. WLAN utilizes spread-spectrum technology based on radio waves to enable communication between devices in a limited area, also known as the basic service set. This gives users the mobility to move around within a broad coverage area and still be connected to the network.

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.

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.
