From answering emails and using online productivity suites to browsing Facebook and streaming YouTube videos, a fast and reliable internet connection is a must. But what do you do when there are connectivity and speed issues? Here are some solutions to five of the most common WiFi worries.
Latest in Wi-Fi security Earlier in 2018, Wi-Fi Alliance (WFA) announced enhancements to Wi-Fi access security. These enhancements are collectively referred to as Wi-Fi Protected Access – III (WPA3), successor to the currently installed WPA2 standards.
Over the past two decades, we have witnessed massive advancements in Wi-Fi technology. The six different wireless standards have brought ever faster speeds and greater functionality. From 802.11 delivering 2Mbps connectivity to 802.11ac delivering up to 3.47Gbps, the industry has come a long way.

Current systems are delivering a poor experience – for both end users and IT teams – that prevent technology from enabling the mission […]
Wi-Fi and mobile access is the heartbeat of today’s society. We connect and communicate with our mobile devices all the time, for our business activities and personal engagements. As a user, we expect our applications and access to work as a utility. There are times when we are disappointed with the service.
AI replaces manual WiFi management tasks with automated intelligence and provides deep insight that helps identify and fix problems faster than ever before. Mean Time to Repair (MTTR) is a common term in IT that represents the average time required to repair a failed component or device.
Sometime after 2019 Wi-Fi will get a massive speed bump. At present, the fastest theoretical throughput from Wi-Fi routers operating on the 802.11ac standard is 1.3 GBPS. By 2019 with the advent of 802.11ax the speeds will be as little as three times as fast, starting at 3.5 GBPS. With MIMO you can then multiply […]
Wi-Fi speeds are about to get faster. A lot faster. As cable and fiber providers are deploying gigabit internet connections to offices and to homes, Wi-Fi has not really been keeping up. While many wireless access points and routers tout gigabit speeds, throughput rarely meets the theoretical speeds that are listed in the specs.
Public Wi-Fi, hotspots. Wi-Fi at airports, train stations, on airplanes, in hotels, shopping malls, coffee shops, restaurants and even in public spaces. Each day you see more and more Wi-Fi being deployed by mobile operators, hotspot operators, and cable operators.
