Wireless is everywhere, and in today's world- necessary. With bring your own device (BYOD) becoming the norm, businesses rely even more heavily on the network in the facility. When day-to-day business relies on the network, that means more devices- and in the case of hospitality, education, and even healthcare- guests' devices rely on that network as well. The more devices, the more taxed the network becomes- but with the help of recent standards from IEEE and TIA, along with important backbone upgrades to a high-performance Category 6A cabling infrastructure, wireless access points will be able to handle more traffic and deliver data faster now and in the future.
In Leviton's white paper, "The Evolution of Wireless" by Yuna Shin, Senior Product Manager for Leviton Network Solutions, we can delve into the newest standards, what they mean, and how to build the infrastructure to support the influx of devices onto the network. Enterprise networks using IEEE 802.11ac technology are better prepared for more wireless devices, more access points, and faster speeds in the workplace, but users won’t see the true benefits of the new standard without the right cabling infrastructure in place to support it.
