The Need for Comprehensive Wireless LAN Security: WLANs face many threats that strong authentication and link encryption do not address. Because wireless is a shared medium, it is subject to malicious attacks such as de-authentication broadcasts, evil twin access point/Honeypot. Therefore you need to implement the same protection mechanisms that you deploy ubiquitously on your WAN gateway, on your wireless LAN as well.
Our evaluation found that, where Cisco and Huawei both offer all the comparable components for building a campus-wide, wireless and wired, network infrastructure, test after test found that the Cisco package offers certain positive advantages that Huawei does not. Cisco showcased superior performance against the Hauwei wireless solution with a highly developed resource management, hardware, software and security platform to provide the most optimized, trustworthy system to ever customer.
With the right approach, you can combine the mobility of wireless with the performance of wired networks. To get up to speed on 802.11ac, we're providing an 802.11ac migration cheat sheet and webinar on-demand.

Today’s corporate networks are more important to business objectives than ever before. Consequently, greater amounts of sensitive data traverse both wired and wireless networks. This plethora of valuable data in today's enterprise attracts an increasing number of hackers and malware applications. However, the inherent connected intelligence and distributed nature that makes the network a treasure trove for cybercriminals can also empower the network to be a proactive security tool. Through traffic visibility, and segmentation, today's enterprise network can prove itself to be a sensor and enforcer for security

A wireless network is a platform for enabling enterprise-wide access to an organization's applications and data. Wireless infrastructure allows users to take the office with them wherever they go. The wireless network provides employees and guest workers with untethered access to voice, video, data and applications regardless of their physical location. With the influx of mobile devices and increase in Wi-Fi connections, organizations are already starting to see a paradigm shift to "wireless by default" and "wired by exception."
