In the evolving IoT landscape, wireless links to sensors are supported on technologies such as WLAN, Bluetooth, Zigbee etc. Many cloud based platforms are emerging to implement business logic that creates physical effects and generates analytics using the wireless IoT sensors. This session covers how an enterprise WLAN access point is set to evolve into an IoT gateway to […]
This session will give you “deep peek” at many different types of antenna elements and explain their applications and design parameters. To compliment the antenna element design, we will also describe the different types of antenna radome materials, application and design parameters.
As network engineers, we often have to prove that “It’s Not the Network!” The easiest way to do that is to test bandwidth performance with tools like speedtest and iPerf. However, these tools are often misused or abused. We’ll cover their differences and how to use them more effectively.
Learn essentials of 802.11ai standard. This new standard promises great improvements to connection setup phase and management traffic reduction.
During the hundreds of hours I spend on the road as a trainer I’ve spent dozens of them sleeping at airports and waiting on connecting flights in different continents. No matter how I spend my time, after a few hours of waiting on connecting or delayed flights, I eventually get bored and performing Wi-Fi surveys has become one of […]
The presentation will be about the use of antennas in wireless design scenarios, and the need to ensure proper selection for coverage to meet design requirements. Multiple examples of real-world wireless deployments will be highlighted, and the presentation will examine the selection process for the chosen antenna in each example along with how that antenna […]
Being a professional shouldn’t be a lonely endeavor. There are people just like you out there with the same questions, the same viewpoints, and the same challenges. But how can you connect with them effectively? How can you become a force multiplier for your community and make it into something great? Tom Hollingsworth of Tech […]
As consumer markets for cellphones are saturating, mobile operators look to new markets for growth. From their viewpoint, enterprise networks seem ripe for transformation. What would an operator-managed enterprise network look like as cellular architectures, licensed-unlicensed spectrum and 5G concepts move closer to reality? And what challenges must be overcome for this to happen? All […]
5Ghz usage is exploding and as a result more and more vendors are offering the option of adding a software defined radio (SDR) in their APs, enabling administrators to balance the number of 5GHz radios to the number of 5GHz capable clients. From a marketing standpoint this is a great message (ROI and all that […]
Unlicensed LTE technologies use the same 5 GHz spectrum like Wi-Fi. Learn about the different technologies and how they are expected to co-exist with Wi-Fi.
