Cisco projects that by 2020, the average smartphone will generate 4.4GB of network traffic every month (up from less than 1GB per month in 2015). The skyrocketing number of wireless devices, along with increasing amount of data that each is capable of sending and receiving, is causing an explosion in the amount of bandwidth being transmitted over IP networks. As the industry standards entities continue to take steps to enable faster data transmission, new developments in BASE-T, combined with Power over Ethernet, will further stress the copper infrastructure that supports wireless access points. In order to prepare for this tremendous demand on your network, you first need to understand what to prepare for.
- The rapid growth in wireless data traffic and how it is driving the advancement of wireless technologies
- What the current and planned wireless standards will mean for your network infrastructure
- The impact of new technologies, such as 2.5 & 5GBASE-T and PoE, on network performance
- Product and installation recommendations for maximum performance
