Authenticating to wireless networks should be fast and easy. In order to make that work, you need to build out the infrastructure to make it happen. Tom Hollingsworth takes a quick look at how Cisco is using their OpenRoaming technology to do just that.
Cisco’s new 4800-series access points have a feature list to make you drool. 4×4 802.11ac Wave 2 radios, a built-in hyperlocation antenna array, and BLE beacon support. But on top of this, Lee Badman looked at the documentation for the device, and got a history lesson of how fast the wireless market has changed.
The Internet of Things in a technological hypebeast, being both clearly defined and a marketing ploy at the same time. Cisco has clearly defined what they think IoT is all about: adding connectivity to devices. Using LoRaWAN, Cisco has a compelling technical solution to making connectivity possible on a mass scale.
At Cisco Live Europe last week, we finally saw some of the results of the partnership between Cisco and Apple. It was stressed that this wasn’t the end-result of the collaboration, simply the first deliverable result. It’s interesting enough on its own to make we wonder what else is on the roadmap.
Mobility Field Day 2017 events will be held July 25th-26th in Silicon Valley. Additionally, a Tech Field Day Extra Event at Cisco Live on June 26th-28th will touch on mobility centric topics.
Lee Badman of wirednot comments: Say what you will about PI (and I say plenty, sometimes under my breath), there is a lot packed into this Network Management System. One of my favorite features for remotely characterizing how individual APs see each other may not be so obvious, so a quick show and tell is […]
Keith Parsons of WLAN Pros writes: During the presentation at #WFD7 from Matt Silverman, Technical Leader from Cisco on an Overview from MIMO technology, I started to think about the net effects this might cause our Wireless LANs in the future as 802.11ac Wave 2 in on the horizon for next year. Though I, like […]
Chris Lyttle of WiFi Kiwi’s Blog comments: I was reading my twitter feed on the way home tonight and it was abuzz about a new Miercom report that Cisco had paid for that showed their new Aironet 3702i AP vs. an Aruba Networks AP-225. Miercom is well known by most WLAN pros that I know […]
