Enterprise Wireless: Two Models; Which One is Right for You?

The next generation of wireless technology is coming down the pike faster than ever thanks to the explosive growth in smartphone and tablet PC use.

Schools, hospitals, manufacturing facilities, retail organizations, hospitality and convention facilities, and many others, all find themselves with a pressing need to upgrade enterprise wireless systems while sidestepping the need to do a “forklift upgrade.”

How can you provide convenient, secure, wireless access, according to the latest standards, while still reigning in both costs and workload?

Two Paths to an 802.11n Wireless
Developers of the latest 802.11n wireless networks have come up with two different kinds of solutions:

  1.  “Command and control”: a pyramid-style hub type of system. At the heart of these solutions is a brain called a “controller,” to which a network of access points (APs) connect, and from which they receive information. A controller is expensive—and the costs multiply as networks grow. Because all of a network’s traffic must flow through a controller, it can become a bottleneck.
  2.  “Equal Partnership”: a network of equal partners. Individual APs work as peer-to-peer devices, configured in a self-aware “mesh arrangement” where they work together to improve speed and redundancy. Individually, they function much like the intelligent smart switching devices found in today’s wired networks: they sort and send data only where they’re needed. There is collaborative control. There are no bottlenecks and there is no single point of failure.
