Xirrus, a leader in wireless networking, has paired with distinguished Gartner Group analyst Tim
Zimmerman to discuss best practices for planning the design and implementation of wireless networks. The discussion will provide pragmatic ways to eliminate the spiraling wireless costs associated with implementing the complex wireless networks required to deliver service in bandwidth-intensive environments.

"To design a wireless LAN, implementers need to use the proper design criteria. Enterprises that don't understand the details risk poor performance, or, worse, having to 'rip and replace' the entire WLAN. Apply best practices to get it right the first time," Tim Zimmerman said, referring to an April, 2012, Gartner report titled "Use Best Practices to Implement a WLAN."

IT professionals increasingly depend on wireless networks to transform their businesses to support a highly mobile workforce. Yet the costs of creating high-performance wireless environments are skyrocketing. This webinar will help customers deal with these mounting complexities and understand how to:

  • Control the rising costs of implementing wireless connectivity
  • Enhance end-user productivity through wireless innovation
  • Respond to the need for frequent, real-time business interactions that leverage 'wireless first' or 'wireless only' connectivity

"Delivering mobility support to corporate users is one of the top concerns companies are grappling with today," said Steven Wastie, CMO, Xirrus. "Networks are getting crushed with an onslaught of wireless traffic, a result of more devices and greater access to cloud-based resources. This webinar with Tim Zimmerman will offer IT professionals affordable strategies for delivering network flexibility and high performance as their wireless networks grow."

Xirrus, a Wi-Fi industry innovator, was named a visionary in the just-published "Magic Quadrant for the Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure," dated June, 13, 2012.
