Unplugged — Show 2 — Virtual Access Points

This is the second podcast from the Packet Pushers devoted to Wireless Networking. After Jennifer Huber joined the Packet Pushers, we agreed that an occasional wireless podcast about would be worth doing. Herewith, is the second episode of Packet Pushers Unplugged on wireless networking.

The Content

  • Item 2 — Wireless Tech Field Day coming up next year — Have you put in your .02 about who you’d like to see there? Please go to the survey at and tell us what you think.
  • Item 3 — Emerging Wi-Fi Uses in Retail Enterprises (business analytics, real-time location services, multi channel guest interaction, guest connections, employee use of personal devices such as the iPad) and Andrews blog post on the topic here
