Adaptable SDN for Wi-Fi [Infographic]

The Wired & Wi-Fi networks are not really two networks.  They are one network – the business network

You hear the term software defined networks (SDN) everywhere today; however this is mainly in regards to wired infrastructure. The fact is the Wi-Fi part of the network is approaching wired speeds and users are demanding the same experience on the Wi-Fi network as they are used to getting on the wired part of the network. This huge growth in Wi-Fi is being driven by the demands of mobile and BYOD users.

Wi-Fi is a critical business asset, the wired and Wi-Fi network cannot be treated as two different networks, this will not work.  For SDN to be the all-inclusive network change agent it must also include Wi-Fi.

This Infographic details some of the key components of IdentiFi Adapt, the first Wi-Fi solution for SDN.
