The workforce is going mobile. According to Forrester, more than half of employees carry at least three
devices for work. And many are bringing their own smartphones, tablets, and other devices to work, a
phenomenon that’s grown so popular it now has its own acronym—Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).
So it comes as no surprise that, according a survey by SpiceWorks, 60% of small and medium businesses are
considering using a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) as part of their BYOD strategy. Many of these organizations
are relying on VMware® Horizon View™ (formerly VMware View), because it enables organizations to implement a
VDI infrastructure that reduces operational costs, enhances security and supports a mobile workforce.

Furthermore, the “fly-by-night” qualities that might have characterized early pop-ups have now been supplanted by dependable, secure infrastructure solutions that put temporary retail locations on par with their more permanent counterparts.

For many wireless broadband network operators, the term "unlicensed reliability" is seen as an oxymoron. For many, the idea of building a high-speed network in the unlicensed band isn't a good one. A great deal has been said about crowded frequencies, self-interference and costly network rips. About how microwaving popcorn can cause interference. About disgruntled and perplexed customers. And ex-customers.
