The deployment of WiFi networks can be particularly challenging. We’re going to take a look at three problems that occur when deploying in the 2.4 GHz (Gigahertz) band. In the three examples we’re going to take a look at, they will be real life examples. For instructor-led Wireless training, see our 5-day course: WIRE400: Wireless Networking … Continue reading 3 Problems That Occur When Deploying in the 2.4 GHz Band in WiFi Networks
With IT professionals, I’m sure all of us have done things that we’ve been rather embarrassed about and would be considered to be rather silly. For instructor led wireless training, see our 5-day course: WIRE400: Wireless Networking for the IT Professional I’m going to share with you one of the funniest things that IT professionals do … Continue reading Planning your Wireless Network for IT Professionals. Can the Access Point Hear You?
What is interference? Wi-Fi operates in the license-exempt frequency bands. The main advantage of operating in these bands is that the network administrator does not need to pay a licensing fee to operate their equipment. The primary disadvantage of operating in these bands is that other equipment may also be transmitting in these bands, and … Continue reading Sources of Interference and When You Should Be Concerned
It is all about throughput: The IEEE 802.11n standard is called “high throughput”. The newer IEEE 802.11ac standard is called “very high throughput”. As the name suggests, 802.11ac enables higher throughput. Wikipedia defined throughput as “the rate of successful message delivery over a communication channel”, in other words, the number of bits per second successfully … Continue reading Should you wait for 802.11ac Wave 2?
Planning and deploying a wireless network for user access is considerably more difficult than implementing a wired network. This is because every location has a unique radio frequency (RF) environment. Even if you have offices or floors with the same physical layout, changes in construction material, the location of filing cabinets, the presence of microwave … Continue reading Three Common Mistakes IT Professionals Make When Planning Their Wireless Network
Why IT professionals need to understand wireless Wireless networks are becoming increasingly more important to all organizations, from mall mom and pop stores, to major corporations. It is forecasted that by 2018 wireless devices will account for 61% of IP traffic, greatly exceeding traffic from wired devices, which will reduced to a mere 39% of … Continue reading Wireless Networking for the IT Professional.
