Network engineers are increasingly challenged to make sure their WLANs have enough capacity to handle end-users' needs. This handbook looks at how enterprises can increase capacity in the WLAN with 802.11ac and examines the uses of 60 GHz wireless technology in the upcoming 802.11ad standard.

  • WAN optimization policy goes deep

    The nature of the branch office is changing. Previously, branch offices were small remote sites with groups of workers that had a single focus, such as sales or customer support. Generally these workers accessed the same narrow set of applications.

    Now the network team must ensure access to a wider range of applications that put a new kind of strain on the network. Network pros are turning to WAN optimization and application acceleration that depend on role-based and location-based policy setting. In our cover story this month, David Geer presents WAN and application optimization strategies for complex branch offices.
