At the network edge today, wireless architectures vary from centralized to distributed, while disparate wired/wireless hardware and software each operate with unique functionality and user experience. Edge network connectivity requirements go beyond Ethernet and Wi-Fi for users to include Bluetooth and IoT technologies for guest engagement and devices. Locations where users connect have extended beyond the carpeted campus into retail, manufacturing, healthcare, large event stadiums and locations around the globe. To compound this complexity, the edge has become a new attack surface for security breaches from millions of newly-connected IoT sensors and devices ranging from blood pressure monitors to motion sensors and door locks.

It’s where users engage, as well as where mobile transactions, management and connection of IoT devices occur. The edge is the first line of defense against cyberattacks, and the go-to place to get a pulse on your business. Finally, the edge is where multiple connectivity technologies come together across diverse locations and different deployment scenarios.
