Secure WiFi, like electricity, has become a common utility that every business relies on today. However, there are two critical aspects about WiFi that have changed. First, the way we use wireless has evolved and two because of how we use it today, secure WiFi has become increasingly more complex to design, deploy and manage. While there are a number of things that can go wrong, in this week's episode, we want to discuss three of the biggest WiFi problems we see and what you can do to solve them.
What's going on everybody? My name is Danny. Welcome to the WiFi Minute.Today's topic, what your business needs to solve these three major WiFi problems. Okay. Let's put 60 seconds up on the clock and let's go.
Increasing numbers of devices.
In the past, RF coverage was the focus, and while also an important factor, it's limited when it comes to delivering adequate performance, especially as your business is being forced to support more and more devices.
You need a wireless network built on a platform that is designed for capacity. Planning for capacity adds context when engineering your network. It does this by taking into account a variety of valuable information. Such as, how many devices will your network have to support, what types of devices are there, and what types of applications will be used.
With more devices comes more opportunities for security threats to attack your business and your end users. Without a way to handle or on-board the devices coming onto your network and control where they can go and what they can do, everyone and everything is left exposed. You need a wireless system that's, again, built on a platform that provides secure WiFi access to your network resources and the internet.
Managing your wireless network.
Wireless is a dynamic system and to maintain optimal performance, it requires ongoing monitoring and management. Your WiFi network needs to be built on a platform that comes with a network management system to allow you or a management services partner to visualize, troubleshoot, and make adjustments in real time.
Wireless is inherently complex, and there are many different challenges that have to be overcome. These are just three of them. Down in the description, I've included a link to our wireless network design kit, which will provide you with everything you need to know before you deploy a large scale wireless network.

You guys have been great. I've been Danny. Thanks for watching and we'll see you next time.
