BYOD is now reality for many workplaces: Corporate IT needs to develop ways to effectively balance the issues of new-age agility versus traditional control. WiFi networking has evolved from bolt-on afterthought, originally added to provide occasional access, to what for many is now their first choice connectivity option. Of course, for dedicated tablet users, it’s the only choice.
This transformation presents its own challenges in terms of authenticating users and authorizing access. Additionally, there’s now even greater need to effectively segregate traffic throughput the network, partitioning Wireless-based access traffic from the regular network. Deployment agility, connection efficiency, and robust scalability complete the wish-list.
