Positioning a Wireless Router and Other Networking Components with Oberon's 1016 Wireless Network Cabinet
In a corporate environment, Internet access and network connectivity are a vital part of day to day business. Even minutes of down time leads to lost productivity. As such, networking components are always locked and secured in a telecommunications room. The Wi-Fi and wireless components of the network present a dilemma, however, in that the wireless end points (access points) need to be out in the open workspace (rather than in a telecom room), yet still secured. In a corporate or campus environment, the access points are often locked and secured in Oberon wireless access point enclosures, providing the dual functionality.

Why will IEEE 802.11ac change the Wireless Experience?
Products built to the new IEEE 802.11ac amendment feature "wired-like" speeds, data rates beyond 1 Gig, unprecedented user density, scalability in large venues, and better client battery life. All this new capability is provided by larger swaths of bandwidth available in the 5 GHz band and sophisticated modulation and coding schemes enabled by advanced signal processing techniques.

Installing Wi-Fi Access Points and Wireless Networks in Educational Facilities and Residence Halls

Wi-Fi and wireless networks are ubiquitous on college campuses and residence halls. Campuses provide an extra challenge to the network designer and installer because these facilities are comprised of many types of construction, including historically and architecturally sensitive buildings, and older construction.

Wireless Networks in Healthcare
According to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it is estimated that in 2002 there were 1.7 million Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) in the U.S. This resulted in an estimated nearly 99,000 deaths, costing up to $45 billion that year. It is estimated that the cost to treat each HAI is now $40,000 to $60,000, with the costs of treatment falling on the hospital or facility where the infection occurred.

New Gigabit Wireless To Support Global Mobile Data Growth Part II
This is the second part of a two part article. Last month, I presented a forecast for growth in mobile data based on the 2013 Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI) report. This report forecasts that by 2016 wireless and mobile data traffic will exceed wired traffic, placing great burdens...

New Gigabit Wireless To Support Global Mobile Data Growth Part I
You know how much more you access web based content from your own mobile devices. And you know how many more mobile devices are in you own personal arsenal than a year or two ago. But has anybody quantified this growth globally? Periodically, Cisco releases the...

Technology Forecast: Wi-Fi to become Preferred Access Interconnect Method by 2015
The IEEE, the developer of the 802.3 standard, engaged the IEEE 802.3 Higher Speed Study Group (HSSG) to chart a path for higher networking speeds. Of course, this is of great interest to the structured cabling community, as the adoption of higher speed standards will impact data communications cabling (copper and fiber), network and storage interface electronics, wireless interfaces, applications developers, and the entire installation community. It was observed by the group that core networking speed and computing application speeds are growing very rapidly and at different rates, thereby driving the need to develop new wireline Ethernet standards and speeds. Because of the contention between cost, distance, and speed priorities for different technologies, networks, and applications, the IEEE P802.3ba Task Force developed two rate objectives for the new 802.3ba Ethernet standard - 40 Gigabit Ethernet and 100 Gigabit Ethernet...

High density Wi-Fi Deployments in Stadiums and Auditoriums: Protecting Access Points
The proliferation of mobile devices continues to challenge wireless network designers. The limits of macro-cellular 3G and 4G spectrum and bandwidth are being approached in many venues, and the opportunities for "offloading" traffic onto cooperative Wi-Fi networks are being recognized in those venues. In particular, high density wireless environments, such as stadiums and auditoriums may have hundreds and thousands of mobile devices packed in an area much smaller than the geographical coverage of a traditional cellular base station. The device users have become accustomed to being able to connect and expect to do so in the stadium or auditorium. Service providers strive to provide satisfactory service, and venue owners or sponsors can increase revenue through mobility enabled services such as wireless point of sale terminal and advertisement push to mobile devices...
