Adapting to Changes as Wi-Fi Continues to Evolve

With BYOD affording many employees the opportunity to connect to networks from more than one device – not to mention the fact that across the enterprise, organizations are grappling with the technical complexities of the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard – network engineers have their hands full with bandwidth issues as the Wi-Fi ecosystem adapts to the glut of personal devices.

It doesn't look like network engineers are going to get much of a rest in 2015; instead, their job is growing more difficult each day as an increasing number of complex tasks lands on their desks. From static budgets to higher bandwidth demand to constant and evolving security threats, network engineers have their work cut out for them. Still, solutions do exist that can help lighten the load for these IT professionals.
