Cisco Unified Wireless

A worldwide revolution is occurring in business. Wi-Fi enabled notebook computers are proliferating and driving the adoption of enterprise wireless LANs (WLANs)—making business mobile. Unlike past technology advancements that were driven by technology professionals, the explosion of enterprise WLANs is being driven by mobile users, traveling executives, wireless applications, and mobility services like voice services, guest access, enhanced security, and location services. The acceleration of enterprise adoption of WLAN technology is radically transforming business operations, the network edge, data centers, and centralized IT control.
