It’s no secret we’re a mobile society, constantly on the go and even more important, always connected. We use many different mobile devices from iPads and Android tablets, smartphones, smart-watches and more - there is no shortage of ways to connect to each other and the world around us. As a result BYOD network design has become increasingly more and more important.
As businesses and organizations it’s expected that you support the growing demand for BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). That you allow students, employees, customers, doctors, guests
etc. to use your wireless network securely and with full support for any device they choose.
In our increasingly connected and tech-savvy world we live in, providing successful BYOD is not only expected but is viewed as “normal”.
In-fact people get frustrated and even upset when they can’t login with their device. It’s as if they’ve traveled back in time, to a place when things like free Wi-Fi didn’t exist.
It’s almost offensive to customers these days if you don’t offer them free Wi-Fi. The reality is that It’s a sign of the times and your best solution is to be proactive and ready to meet the demand.
