UNWIRE YOUR WORLD

With the proliferation of mobile devices it's not surprising that the demand for mobility is unstoppable. Users expect seamless connectivity whenever and wherever they are, using their mobile devices to interact in a myriad of different ways across work, play, education and much more. Underpinning this is the need to be able to provide reliable, ubiquitous wireless access for customers, guests and employees.

For retailers, sports stadiums, cities, hospitals and more, the population's insatiable use of mobile devices presents an unprecedented opportunity to entice, personalise, engage, understand behaviour and deliver new experiences. For businesses, delivering these new experiences can help increase employee and user satisfaction and improve productivity and engagement.

In the workplace organisations are grappling to support a growing proliferation of mobile devices. At the same time wired devices such as projectors and audio-video conferencing systems are also giving way to softphones and unified communications (UC) applications. This is driving the urgent need to move away from just a wired network.

In turn, this presents a great opportunity to create a more flexible and agile working environment at the same time as reducing costs by refining the mix of wired and wireless infrastructure. The great thing about Wi-Fi today is that its security and performance is similar to wired infrastructure, offering the capacity to meet ever increasing bandwidth at less cost.

Unwire and look forward to exciting new ways to provide a connected, engaged and trusted service while helping to improve user satisfaction and reduce your costs.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER

User experience hinges on being connected. Without it, people can feel unsatisfied, unproductive and disconnected from the world around them.

This is asking much more of network connections today and has led to the rise of Wi-Fi as the next critical network.

The Wi-Fi network needs to be smart, packaged to be simple, and targeted to user needs. Here are four key considerations for your Wi-Fi environment.

INTELLIGENCE
The wireless network needs to provide ubiquitous wireless coverage that is secure and dependable, delivering applications reliably every time. To achieve this requires a high-capacity WLAN able to accommodate dense user populations and high-bandwidth applications and devices as well as coping with changing loads as people move about. For a trusted mobility experience, quality of service is needed to ensure latency sensitive communications such as voice and video are crystal clear. The service should also work well for social networking and unified communications applications and perform regardless of whether applications reside locally or in private or public clouds.

SECURITY
The network needs to cater for a wide choice of smartphones, tablets and laptops and securely support these. Just as wired infrastructure provides strong security, the Wireless LAN needs to also provide robust, scalable security.

SCALABILITY
As mobile usage grows it's simply not practical for IT to intervene every time there is a move, add or change. In order to scale today's networking solutions you need to focus on enabling users to onboard their own devices and to provision the applications they need themselves.

SIMPLICITY
Moving to Wi-Fi can be much more than simplifying physical infrastructure. The solution should also simplify policy settings and management regardless of whether users access via the wired or wireless environment. IT needs visibility with tools to improve operations, monitor, alert, provide historical reporting and efficient troubleshooting.

Even better you can hand over network management to a trusted provider who provides you with end-to-end management across both your wired and wireless networks. Your IT team can then get on with other aspects of empowering your mobility initiatives.
