The changing demands of wireless networksThe demands of the modern network have changed dramatically in the last few years. Offices that use to be dominated by wired PCs have been steadily transformed into hybrid environments where wireless devices such as tablets and smart phones are as important to users as desktops.
This has resulted in an explosion in the number of wireless network devices that businesses need to support. In many cases, these changes have not been planned and put huge pressure on wireless networks that were designed for a previous era. 100-user networks used to be designed to serve a handful of laptops alongside the desktop PC fleet. Now the same network is required to support one or more wireless device per user.
