Webinar: Mind the gap: Wi-Fi speeds – Reality vs advertised 

Thu 12 Octoer 2017, 12pm NZT

Wi-Fi products are often attractively advertised on highest possible data rates. So why when you plug in your new 1.3 Gbps access point and run traffic do you find you don’t get the speed you, or your users, expected? What’s to blame – the access point, marketing, transmission complexities? And how can you optimise the speed you’ll get? 

Join our ‘Wi-Fi speeds’ deep dive with our Systems Engineers, and discuss why max bandwidth does NOT equal usable throughput: 

  • Calculate the overhead involved in transmitting network data via Wi-Fi, and how to plan for it 
  • Explore factors affecting usable throughput: client mix, distance from access point, interference and more
  • Highlight bandwidth optimisation strategies to use in your environment

Qualified attendees will also receive a free .11ac Access Point and switch, to see a different solution for themselves. Register here today!

Webinar: The Power of 5GHz

Tues 22 August 2017, 12pm NZT

Join our 5GHz spectrum deep dive to learn how to lessen interference, increase capacity, and elevate ROI on your wireless network.

When Wi-Fi products entered the market in 1997, they did so exclusively on the 2.4GHz spectrum. By 1999, 5GHz became an alternative, and 18 years later the 5GHz spectrum is an essential component of  true high performance wireless networks. 802.11ac proliferation has driven Wi-Fi vendors to include software definable radios (SDR), enabling support for (2) 5GHz radio configuration OR the typical dual band support. The result is more flexible, future-proof Wi-Fi, capable of supporting the 802.11ac/5GHz-centric future. But are you taking advantage? 

Bring your questions and join our Systems Engineers to discuss how 5GHz can:

  • Improve operational efficiency and performance
  • Provide 7x the bandwidth of 2.4 GHz
  • Increase network flexibility and adaptability 
  • Create less RF and Wi-Fi interference

Qualified attendees will also receive a free .11ac Access Point and switch, to see a different solution for themselves. Register here today!

New Zealand Esri User Conference

14-16 August 2017, SkyCity Auckland Convention Centre

The New Zealand Esri User Conference 2017 is the largest annual gathering of the New Zealand GIS community.

Webinar: TCO Impact: A Wi-Fi Architecture Head-to-Head

Thu 15 June 2017, 12pm NZT

Qualified attendees will also receive a free .11ac Access Point and switch, to see a different solution for themselves.

Join this webinar and identify the significant cost impacts and performance limitations of today’s different WLAN architecture options.

It’s easy to focus on Access Point speeds and feeds when choosing a WLAN solution. But it’s often the control plane coordinating their operations that determines resiliency, bottlenecks, adaptability, and overall total cost of ownership. This quick online architecture-buster will help you identify relevant limitations to assess solutions:

  • Physical controllers – how much are the extra hardware costs? Where can bottlenecks creep in?
  • Cloud controllers – what happens if APs lose connectivity to the cloud, or if licenses expire?
  • Scalability – how well do different architectures scale before additional cost or complexity?
  • Flexibility – if you want to add features and capabilities, does that mean a migration?
