On June 6, 2019, the Packet Pushers held their fifth Virtual Design Clinic. Enjoy this full-length presentation from that event.
Lee Badman helps you understand whether or not your network is ready for Wi-Fi 6, formerly known as 802.11ax. The issue is more than just hanging new access points. Lee brings up the following points worth considering.
– Will power hungry 8×8 radios drive a greater need for UPoE ports?
– Do we finally need mGig uplinks / NBASE-T?
– Will your existing cabling plant support Wi-Fi 6?
– The joy of modern vendor licensing schemes.
– How quickly will Wi-Fi 6 client density ramp?
– What’s the impact of Wi-Fi 6 on IoT devices?
– Are cloud-based wireless LAN controllers a good idea at scale?
– What is all this about analytics and so on vendors want to sell you?
Packet Pushers regulars Drew Conry-Murray & Ethan Banks ask questions on behalf of the live VDC audience during Lee’s presentation.
