Within years of its inception, wireless has become an integral part of WAN for end-device connection method in enterprises. At the outset, Wi-Fi implementations were designed with a focus on wireless coverage over capacity. However, the advent of the BYOD movement, escorted by an influx of new devices, is fostering a radical transformation in enterprise WLANs. Enterprises are fast catching up to 802.11ac Wave 2 AP, which brings the value of MU-MIMO and the competence to service up to three coinciding streams to different users. Treading on the heels of this latest Wave 2 AP is 802.11ax—the next-gen Wi-Fi standard that ushers in orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) for improved spectral efficiency in addition to higher order 1024 QAM modulation support for greater throughputs.
Meanwhile, cloud-managed WLAN is making headway as it overshadows the traditional model of on-premises WLAN, engendering faster deployment and alleviating bottlenecks. Adding a perfect touch to the cloud service is RAN virtualization that fosters optimized use of existing hardware resources to avoid over-provisioning, thereby empowering organizations to maximize their capital investment. The market today is replete with umpteen solution providers that can help companies prepare for the upcoming surge of network technologies and consequently retain their position at the top.
