How To Build A Winning Business Case for 802.11ac Wave 2 [eBook]


Reduce costs, improve implementation schedules, boost end-user productivity and align IT operations with overall organizational goals. Sound familiar? If you’re an IT manager they do! These objectives are placed on IT managers everywhere, so clearly any technology that contributes to accomplishing these goals should be on the front burner. Wi-Fi based wireless LANs have a long history of enabling IT organizations to cut network expense, and mobility has enabled the workforce – across the entire organization – to become more productive.

To complete the picture, each new generation of Wi-Fi based products add price-performance improvements, explaining all the excitement around Wave 2 of 802.11ac. Wave 2 promises to provide the capacity, and not just the raw throughput, to accommodate essentially any device and traffic mix with greater efficiency, less cost and higher productivity, than has ever been possible before.

This is great news for IT managers, but the problem lies in the fact that the same argument has been made for every new generation of Wi-Fi products. So IT managers today, dealing with the reduced budgets and requirements for ever-greater efficiency that still persist from the recession of almost a decade ago, must seek to understand not just the realities of advances in technology, but even more importantly the business justifications.
