Wireless Audit for Density and BYOD

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks! So in this day and age BYOD (bring your own device) is becoming a serious concern. Gone are the days when people were happy with just a wired connection.

With the plethora of devices out there such as tablets, smartphones, and laptops it’s a given that people are going to clamor for proper wireless access wherever they go.

The problem that plagues most companies these days isn’t that they don’t have wireless access, most of the them do in fact. The problem is that their wireless networks aren’t ready for the density that BYOD brings. Multiple clients in close proximity clustered on single access points.

In situations like this it’s a good idea to audit your current wireless environment and re-plan for BYOD. In the past wireless connectivity is how AP’s were planned, but now we have to plan for density otherwise your wireless network just won’t cut it.
