The connection between the Wi-Fi client and the Wi-Fi access point is only a small part of the overall network communication, but in terms of Wi-Fi reliability, it is the most important. Reliable wireless networks start with a simple and fundamental approach. Understanding and applying the wireless network design fundamentals strengthens your foundation for a reliable wireless network. Channel reuse is one of many fundamental topics that will be addressed in this session. Regardless of your deployment type, reuse of channels and co-channel interference is often overlooked or discounted either through lack of understanding or total disregard.
Did you know co-channel interference (CCI) is the leading cause of contention on to today's Wi- Fi networks? While the industry term co-channel interference would lead many to believe this as interference from a non Wi-Fi device, like a microwave oven or jammer, it is actually contention among same channel Wi-Fi radios. This contention can be mitigated by understanding the wireless network design fundamentals. Today Wi-Fi users are on the go, consuming Wi-Fi on tablets and smart devices more than ever before and this trend has no foreseeable end in sight. Applications like voice, video and missions critical apps are on the go too. Users are demanding the same on the go reliability and experience of cellular communication. Roaming on a Wi-Fi network reliably, leads us to our next fundamental topic.
Roaming on a Wi-Fi network is more than insuring that you have proper cell overlap, again another import design fundamental also covered in this session, but it also involves the type of Wi-Fi security the wireless network will be secured with. If your wireless network is deployed with 802.1X security and your client or wireless network doesn't support or is not configured for advanced roaming protocols, then applications like voice and video on the go could suffer from poor or inconsistent roams, resulting in loss of frames, and poor user experience. In this session George Stefanick will cover the different roaming protocols and the impact they have on today's Wi-Fi applications.
Co-channel interference (CCI)
Mitigating neighboring access points
2.4 Ghz and 5 GHz SSIDs
Advanced roaming protocols for 802.1X wireless networks
In this session, Houston Methodist Hospital wireless architect George Stefanick will explain the fundamentals of designing a reliable wireless network.
