Polycom Pano, a wireless and wired presentation solution, is designed to make it quick and easy for meeting participants to present and share various types of content.
Polycom commissioned the Wainhouse Research test team to perform a third-party assessment of Pano. To facilitate this effort, Polycom provided a pre-release version of the Pano device,
and a Sharp PN-L703B 1080p touch-capable 70” display.
This report contains the results of our hands-on testing.
Historically, the speed of a wired connection at the access edge has always been faster than that of a wireless connection. This means workers had to choose between the performance of wired connectivity and the convenience of a wireless connection. Consequently, workers often had to modify the way they worked— first, finding a wired port to use for high-bandwidth applications, such as video or streaming media, and then shifting to wireless connections when the need to be mobile was more important than having the performance of wired.
Today, though, the industry sits on the precipice of the biggest innovation in the history of wireless LAN: the release of 802.11ac Wave 2. Wave 1 of 802.11ac brought network speeds that were 1.3 Gbps (Gigabits per second), which is on par with wired networking speeds. However, 802.11ac Wave 2 shatters the gigabit barrier with speeds of up to 6.8 Gbps.
Miercom was engaged to perfirm independent, hands-on, comparative testing of competitive IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2-based WiFi Access Points (APs) from Cisco Systems, Aruba Networks and Ruckus Wireless.
This report summarizes the results of the Wave 2 AP comparative testing in these areas:
- Client density: Downlink throughput as the number of client per AP scales from 10 to 100.
- Single vs Multi-User MIMO: Downlink throughput for MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input Multiple-Output), a hallmark of 802.11ac Wave 2, vs Single-User (SU-MIMO) environments.
- 1 Gbps+ Link Aggregation: Tests found that Wave 2 APs can support more than 1Gbps of aggregate downlink throughput, tested over two 1-Gbps LAG (link aggregation) connections.

Distributing your software through online and wireless channels brings substantial benefits: You can save money, get your code out faster, and bypass the inventory and fulfillment constraints of shipping out discs and getting space on retailers’ shelves. But how can you make best use of those digital channels to circulate your code as widely as possible?

This white paper is designed to guide network administrators and security managers to design, implement, and enforce wireless LAN security policies that enable every organization to fully reap the benefits of wireless LANs without experiencing undue management pains and security holes.
This paper explains the numerous places where VoWLAN can go to work, why most offerings fail to make it work, and how only Meru Networks' standard-based solution puts the power of VoWLAN to work at enterprise-scale.
This white paper is for the enterprise IT administrator tasked with deploying a wireless LAN (WLAN) of any scale, the significant investment in equipment, time and resources to properly plan and install the deployment is daunting.
Download this paper now and read why many businesses now recognize that comprehensive management of their wireless device infrastructure is a crucial component of a total IT enterprise management solution.
This paper identifies the requirements for next-generation WLANs, examines the limitations of existing approaches, and describes an innovative WLAN architecture from Trapeze Networks called Smart Mobile™, which overcomes those limitations.
This analyst report written by Stan Schatt, VP & Research Director, Networking at ABI Research helps you decipher the WLAN security alphabet soup, understand architectural approaches to WLAN security, upcoming standards for roaming, load balancing and management frame encryption, and key security requirements that you should consider for you next WLAN deployment.
IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) is an open international standard for Next Generation Networking. It supports the delivery of Voice over IP (VoIP) and various multimedia services. IMS is not in itself a service, but an architecture for service delivery. IMS was originally developed by wireless carriers within the context of the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) in 2002. Since then, its advantages have led to the adoption of IMS by wireline carriers.
One of the greatest challenges to any advanced wireless operation is the maintenance of continuous and economical service. Today’s networks have evolved into business-critical services that organizations rely upon every day. However, unplanned remote site downtime due to equipment and power failure, and adverse environmental conditions can severely impair network service.

Wireless technologies are migrating from complex hierarchical voice-oriented architectures to flatter, low latency, all-IP based designs – reducing cost and complexity for service providers while efficiently supporting real time IP services. Coupled with this trend is the migration to higher performance OFDMA air links with MIMO and AAS, providing much greater bandwidth with improved interference characteristics.

Wireless networking is no more a new name to computer users these days than iPod is to music lovers. This technology is one of the most popular, inexpensive and simple modes of connecting computers to the internet or a network. Both home users, work users and laptop/mobile users, who want to stay connected, even while on the move, are adopting this technology. Download this paper to read about all the threats that come with wireless connections and ways to guard against them.
In an era of "lean IT," the centralized management capabilities of cloud-managed Wi-Fi make it an attractive option to manage and maintain wireless LANs (WLANs) across multiple locations.
The decision to move WLAN management to the cloud requires one key assurance: end-to-end security from user devices to the cloud. This means that user data must be protected over the WAN and in the data center. These security measures should not require on-staff WLAN security expertise to manage. And security measures should be largely transparent to users.
This paper provides an overview of the security architecture of Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi, as well as best practices for specific security scenarios.
