For many years now we have been advising clients in the important reasons why using a WiFi pre-shared key or PSK on their corporate network is just no longer acceptable and that they should be taking their network and data a lot more seriously.
What do we mean by a bottom up approach? A bottom up approach requires you to first build the wireless network, then in a stable, scalable and secure fashion, build in the IoT solutions on top. Many organisations take the Top down approach, finding a solution to a problem followed by overlaying a network to connect to the solution.
The Ruckus IoT Suite simplifies the creation of IoT access networks through the reuse of LAN and WLAN infrastructure, thus shortening deployment duration and reducing the cost to support multiple IoT solutions.
Although WiFi bridges and WiFi meshing are common in replacing the need for cabling, they serve different requirements. Many IT professionals prefer to terminate access points using a wired connection; however, this isn’t always feasible or sensible.
Wireless manufactures have been making multi-gigabit links for a while now, so the technology has matured significantly. Deploying a link across a two-mile stretch can easily achieve five nines availability. However, we come across customers needing to extend the stretch to five, six or more miles which when deploying E-band equipment creates a link between availability vs rain.
Several emerging technologies are going to profoundly change our lives – Bluetooth 5, 5G, Wi-Fi 6 and quantum computing. Why? Because our wearable and mobile devices are going to be able to generate and process more data than ever before.
“Every house needs a solid foundation. You would not want your electrician pouring concrete, nor would you want your brick layer to work on your plumbing. So why do we feel comfortable with sensor, device or manufacturers of “things” providing the components for an enterprise network?
