Networking For The BYOD Enterprise


Networking for the BYOD Enterprise

For many companies, the transition to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and provisioning the right supporting infrastructure presents significant challenges. The enterprise device population of yesteryear was largely BlackBerry, homogenous, company-purchased, and accordingly, more readily managed. With employees bringing various consumer-oriented devices to work, managing mobility and securing company assets have become more difficult tasks for IT professionals. The influx of consumer-oriented iOS and Android devices into the enterprise continues unabated, placing unprecedented demands on companies’ WLANs and network infrastructures. IT staffs need simple but powerful BYOD-targeted tools that secure corporate assets, provide the basis for highly scalable architecture, and unify wireless and wired networks. This report will provide technology professionals with the tools necessary to structure their wireless networks to reflect the requirements of a new mobile workforce.
