As Wi-Fi speeds increase, some organizations are giving serious consideration to the all wireless office (AWO). The all wireless office, essentially cutting the cord for good, could be the next evolution of true Wi-Fi mobility in the enterprise. While enterprises are heavily invested in Wi-Fi infrastructure, many of its users are still tethered to a cable for data and voice services.
George Stefanick and his mobility team at Houston Methodist Hospital cut the cord 2 years ago. George and his team are celebrating their 2 year AWO anniversary. Over 300+ users, all of whom pack laptops, tablets and smart devices, and use Cisco 7925 handsets for voice call AWO home.
In this session George shares his hands on experience deploying an AWO. The good, bad, ugly, and hurdles that needed to be overcome for a successful and reliable deployment.
George will cover:
Cost savings deploying an all wireless office
Management buy in and support
Client driver issues
Distinguishing Wi-Fi issues from server and application problems
Approach on a AWO RF design
Sniffing frames 24/7 with Omnipeek WiFi Appliance
Using Fluke / AirMagnet tools for design, maintenance and troubleshooting
Setting user expectations
Picking power users
Taking what we learned at AWO and deploying in large scale enterprise
"It wasn't an easy road. Though there were many challenges, we're now 2 years in and users are genuinely happy and no one is asking for a cable."
