Today’s Weekly Show episode returns to the University of Idaho, where we continue the real-world network design session we started in Weekly Show 418.
Guests Brian Jemes, Network Manager; and Mike Rusca, Network Engineer are back. We’ve also invited Jake Snyder, a mobility solutions architect.
Today’s episode focuses on the university’s wireless architecture and design.
We discuss how wireless has gone from a best-effort, don’t-count-on-it medium to an absolute requirement for faculty, staff, and students. In fact, wireless accounts for approximately 80% of devices on campus.
The conversation touches on the role of 5Ghz and small cell sizes, PoE, how the next generation of APs will affect WLAN design and operations, and more.
InterOptic offers high-performance, high-quality optics at a fraction of the cost. If you’re not doing optics correctly, you’re going to pay for it upfront (and then later too). Don’t be fooled by lesser optics. The difference between generic third-party and brand-equivalent optics matters. Go to InterOptic.com to learn more.
