Toward a bigger, faster and denser Wi-Fi world

by | May 4, 2017


The need for better, faster, denser and farther reaching Wi-Fi is pretty obvious. People are already so reliant on Wi-Fi and the number of Wi-Fi connected devices they’re adding to their homes and offices seems endless.

Up in the 60 GHz band, 802.11ad (a.k.a. WiGig) and its follow-on, 802.11ay, will be doing their part to solve speed and connectivity crunches, too, says John Tryhub, VP of sales with Toronto’s Peraso, an early WiGig chipset player. While not everyone will need 802.11ad’s 8Gbps throughput and low latency, Wi-Fi Alliance WiGig-certified products have begun rolling out from the likes of Peraso, Dell and Qualcomm, and tri-band offerings will put 11ad to use when 2.5 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi isn’t cutting it for all devices or vApp.

Having a fresh arsenal of Wi-Fi technologies at hand is increasingly important as more ambitious Wi-Fi networks get built. We’re talking beyond the home, beyond the office and into sprawling venues as large as the New York City subway system and well, across India.

Transit Wireless uses data analytics and deep packet inspection tools to track devices and how people are using the network — the sorts of information needed to improve the network and satisfy advertisers’ needs. Though of course this requires a delicate balance between privacy and monetization.

The Wi-Fi Now event kicked off with a talk by Edgar Figueroa, head of the nearly 800-member strong Wi-Fi Alliance, and predictably, he celebrated the technology’s success and “the understated role Wi-Fi plays in the broader context of the economy and connectivity” He touted the 8 billion Wi-Fi devices in use today and pointed out that in 2015, Wi-Fi crossed the threshold of carrying more than half of all internet traffic.

VDI: The most secure environment for hybrid working

Today is Data Privacy Day. The purpose of this date is to raise awareness and promote privacy and data protection best practices. It was initiated by the European Commission, the Council of Europe, and the Data Protection authorities of the European Union’s member states. Their main goal was to drive attention to the importance of privacy, user data protection, and compliance of the General Data Protection Regulation (RGPD). It is a regulation characterized by significant fines for non-compliance since its implementation in 2018.

How to avoid issues with virtual machines

Virtualization comes with a wide range of benefits for organizations. It helps cut IT costs and reduces downtime while increasing efficiency and productivity. It also increases the resiliency of networks, primarily when disasters occur, and promotes more green-friendly operations.

However, using virtual machines also comes with a set of downsides. Information security may get compromised, workloads mixed up, separation duties lost, among other issues. It is vital to know how you can get over these problems, and that’s what this article will discuss.

Let’s get started.
