Virtualization, cloud computing, and wireless technology are fundamentally changing enterprise computing, providing revolutionary gains in productivity and cost savings. Powerful enterprise applications can now be delivered to almost any device, anywhere, at any time.
In this whitepaper Gartner evaluates a variety of networking vendors providing access layer connectivity. Vendors must have an end-to-end hardware solution, but increasingly, vendor differentiation centers on network services, including guest access, onboarding, security and management tools.

Given the evolution of past major advances in wireless-LAN technologies, it should come as no surprise that products based on the still-in-development IEEE 802.11ac standard are now appearing across the board, from residence to enterprise. Just as was the case with 802.11g and 802.11n, the standards-development process is now far enough along that the semiconductor community is shipping in volume, the Wi-Fi Alliance has been able to issue an initial interoperability specification, and system-vendor products offering up to 1.3 Gbps are now available at prices very close to those of 802.11n APs but with on the order of a 30% improvement in price/performance on a spectral-efficiency basis and from 100% to more than 200% in performance overall.
In the high-stakes battle of Internet providers, WiMAX represents the latest up-and-comer to challenge DSL and cable technologies. This new wireless technology is gaining attention for its ability to provide high-speed, high-throughput broadband connections over distances of up to 30 miles instead of a few hundred feet. Exhibiting a surprising amount of utility, WiMAX can be used for a number of different applications.
IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) is an open international standard for Next Generation Networking. It supports the delivery of Voice over IP (VoIP) and various multimedia services. IMS is not in itself a service, but an architecture for service delivery. IMS was originally developed by wireless carriers within the context of the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) in 2002. Since then, its advantages have led to the adoption of IMS by wireline carriers.

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 LAN technology.
To get a handle on what was possible, and all that would be involved, Bob Stirton, director of information technology for the Kansas City Chiefs football organization, sent Network Engineer Scott Fletcher on a scouting mission to the 2012 Super Bowl at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Fletcher watched first-hand the inner workings of a recently installed Cisco Systems wireless network in full-on, gameday action.
Your users are ready for multigigabit wireless. The real question is: Is your network? Don’t miss this opportunity to get a first-hand look at the solutions you’ll need to achieve data rates that make it easier for your people to share, stay informed, and make smart decisions.
• Join hosts Robb, Jimmy Ray, and networking experts as they dive deep into the technical details of delivering exponentially faster 802.11ac Wave 2 access through the current Cat5 cable you already have.
• Hear all about Cisco’s founding membership and participation in the NBASE-T Alliance, the team that’s driving the standardization of 2.5 Gb/s and 5 Gb/s Ethernet speeds in campus access.
• Discover the access point and switch technology you’ll need to ensure that your wired access layer does not become a stumbling block for your continued mobile growth.
Walk past your data center, and you might hear a soft, plaintive call: “Feed me, feed me…” It is not your engineers demanding more pizza. It is your servers and applications. And the call is growing louder
New Cisco® 40-Gbps bidirectional (BiDi) optical technology lets you bring 40-Gbps speeds to the access layer using the same 10-Gbps cable plant you are using today. It is a huge cost savings, whether you are upgrading your current data center or building a new one. And it means you can start taking advantage of 40-Gbps performance for your business right now without needing special budget approval and without having to wait a year to get the capacity you need.
As demands for “right here, right now” information sharing continue to rise, today's organizations are taking a hard look at their branch and remote locations, where performance and service enablement have always been a primary indicator of companywide productivity.
Wi-Fi is about to get a reboot. New 802.11ac Wave 2 products will make it possible to deliver LAN-like multigigabit
speeds over the wireless network for the first time, enabling previously unimagined scale and flexibility in the
enterprise workspace. But how will businesses capitalize on this new capacity when most current Ethernet access
cabling maxes out at 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps)? This white paper:
? Introduces the new generation of Cisco® Catalyst®
switches with Multigigabit Ethernet technology, the first
platforms to combine support for multigigabit wireless speeds with full power over Ethernet (PoE) in an
? Shows how Cisco Catalyst Multigigabit Ethernet switches use NBASE-T technology to empower you to
deliver 5-Gbps speeds over your existing access cabling
? Details how Cisco Catalyst Multigigabit Ethernet switches gives you the scale and capacity you need today,
while protecting your network investments for the future
