This paper explains the numerous places where VoWLAN can go to work, why most offerings fail to make it work, and how only Meru Networks' standard-based solution puts the power of VoWLAN to work at enterprise-scale.
This white paper is for the enterprise IT administrator tasked with deploying a wireless LAN (WLAN) of any scale, the significant investment in equipment, time and resources to properly plan and install the deployment is daunting.
As wireless LAN deployments and usage has increased, coupled with the near ubiquity of embedded Wi-Fi in laptops and smart phones, many enterprises are experiencing complaints from their users of slow or even dropped connections.
Pervasive wireless LAN deployments require much larger, broader deployment of Wi-Fi access points than hot spots, cafes or isolated guest access in the enterprise. Clearly new solutions and deployment methodologies should be considered to make pervasive wireless LAN deployments feasible and economical.
Universities and colleges are among the most aggressive adopters of Wi-Fi technology. The trend toward more collaborative and open learning environments, fueled by the explosive adoption of mobile devices among students and faculty, makes higher education campuses fertile ground for wireless LANs.
