    More Radios in the Infrastructure

    In the past, Wi-Fi was all about range and minimizing access point (AP) count. However, with the explosion in mobile devices today, enterprises began adding more and more APs to their Wi-Fi infrastructure. That can be time-consuming and, more importantly, costly to upgrade. The real key is increasing the number of radios per AP, while keeping AP count at bay. Channel planning, power management, data rate optimization and the elimination of legacy clients will all be necessary to get the most out of your network, but adding radios is ultimately the only way to handle the ever increasing traffic demands in Wi-Fi today.

Companies rely on Wi-Fi now more than ever to drive operations and ultimately business growth. Whether it is collaborating with colleagues or clients, managing customer success, or accessing any number of business applications and services on the market, companies recognize that when the Internet lags, the business lags.

Therefore, reliable, high-speed Wi-Fi is of utmost importance to companies, as it enables employee productivity. But not all companies understand the ins and outs necessary to make this a reality. Today, enterprises must consider a number of new factors if they hope to deploy reliable, high-performance Wi-Fi networks that meet spikes in traffic and mobile usage. In this slideshow, Dirk Gates, founder of Xirrus, provides five tips to optimize your enterprise Wi-Fi network.
