Adopting new technology can be an incredible competitive advantage, but businesses will need to ensure they have a reliable and robust network as a backbone to fully leverage their investments. They’ll also need to work hard to ensure security, as every new investment in technology comes with added risks.
In other words, network resilience that maintains network connectivity and uptime is no longer enough. Companies need the resilience enabled by an advanced network platform that can respond quickly to any circumstances, enable new operating models and services, integrate with IT processes, and safeguard their employees, core activities, customers, and brand. Actually, this is the same advanced network required to support digital transformation initiatives.
Even if your workplace isn’t a stadium or an outdoor concert hall, there are many reasons why you’d want to extend your indoor wireless network to your outside environment. One of the biggest reasons is the ongoing increase of IoT devices. As more and more IoT devices—like video cameras or outdoor lighting or badge readers—are added to the network, they’re using up more and more bandwidth. Recent reports show that up to 50% of globally connected devices will be IoT devices, which means your network needs to grow exponentially in order to support this equipment.
Wi-Fi 6 is opening up new possibilities for wireless. Offering faster speeds for enhanced application experience and more capacity for high-density indoor and outdoor environments. It will not only support existing applications with greater performance and improved experiences but also drive new innovations that will change the way people work.
