April 01, 2013 04:16 PMMeru Networks has rolled out new WLAN capabilities for unified access, device onboarding and more, but its "me too" efforts do little to distinguish it in a competitive market.
November 30, 2012 03:37 PMA competitive review of WLAN products at Syracuse University stirred up controversy because of a vendor’s involvement in the tests. But the real question is, are they testing the right things?
November 26, 2012 11:56 AMThe 802.11ac wireless standard will be ratified in 2013, and pre-standard consumer hardware is on the market. Follow these five steps to prepare now for the day when 802.11ac comes knocking.
September 17, 2012 10:34 AMUsers want their iPhones and iPads on the network. That means dealing with Apple's Bonjour protocol. Aerohive's Bonjour Gateway is a scalable workaround--and now it's free.
May 08, 2012 09:00 AMAs The Wireless Association’s CTIA show unfolds in New Orleans this week, one relatively new wireless company hopes to make its name known among potential customers and fellow industry players. Edgewater Wireless is a Canadian startup that is throwing some pretty big claims around in a market known for big claims. But will people buy in enough to learn more?
March 05, 2012 11:00 AMI'm here to tell you, supporting wireless and mobile clients is nothing like keeping our Ethernet-tethered users happy. In the wired network world, you either get the speed that you're supposed to, or some counter or log somewhere points you to what's wrong. In the wireless realm, the variables are almost infinite. It's way more complicated, and getting worse. A lot worse.
September 28, 2010 09:37 AMImpulse Point, a company whose technology provides network access control (NAC), has introduced an upgrade of its SafeConnect service that regulates access to wireless networks. Impulse, which began serving college campuses where students seek wireless connectivity for myriad devices, is now selling to the enterprise markets as employees in the workplace seek to do the same.
August 13, 2010 01:16 PMAnyone with a pulse in IT knows that wireless networking is muscling out wired Ethernet at home and in business. At a recent Aruba Networks' conference, I was struck by the real-world relevance of the event's running mantra of "wireless where you can, wired where you must." That simple phrase is playing out in my own very large WLAN, where wireless pervades as the main connectivity option for most users, with the patch cable still revered for a shrinking minority of devices. In a recent TCMnet interview, Xirrus CEO Dirk Gates explained how his philosophy goes even further into kissing off wired Ethernet to the desktop through deployment of Xirrus 802.11n Wi-Fi arrays.
July 12, 2010 09:00 AMRemember back to when you got your first big-kid bike, with adjustable gears and big wheels? Remember going down a sizable hill for the first time on those new wheels, and how you just knew life would never be the same? Migrating your wireless network to 802.11n rekindles those memories, and when you realize exactly what you've got in the latest wireless standard, everything that came before it seems suddenly tame by comparison.
May 18, 2010 11:00 AMVeriwave wants to shake up the 802.11 site survey world with Wave Deploy, a wireless assessment product that uses simulated wireless devices to measure and report on wireless networks performance. WaveDeploy can map the results of radio frequency monitoring onto a map or floor plan like any site survey tool, but it goes further by testing measuring layer 3+ issues like capacity, delay and jitter which focus on quality of experience. Compared to other site survey tools like Cisco Clean Air, which measures RF interference and manipulates the access points behavior, Wave Deploy is primarily targeted at point-in-time assessments.
